They're going to start charging £10 pp to stand on the Prime Meridian. WTF. Although standing on an imaginary line isn't what I'd normally choose to do on a Saturday afternoon, the thought of having to eventually pay £10 to do so was enough to inspire me and the family to drive down to Greenwich. To stand on a line. For free.

The Royal Observatory and Planetarium are also there in Greenwich Park. I fondly remember science trips to Lancaster High school's Planetarium and was pretty excited at the thought of spending 20 minutes in a comfy, reclined chair watching the stars, learning about planets and possibly getting the chance to use a laser pointer. 

Elliot thought the show was pretty neat (it was, after all, aimed at kids aged 5 and under), but Noah thought the whole thing was too much and headed outside with Donal. To learn more about meridians. For free.

  1. Really!?! Charging to stand on the Prime Meridian? Ridiculous! Good for you guys taking advantage of the still free experience. Wonder what they charge at the equator? : )
