Greenwich: Science, engineering and astronomy.

For over three centuries Greenwich was at the cutting edge of developments in science, engineering and astronomy.

On this tour we learn of the incredible discoveries of great English astronomers and scientists, such as John Flamsteed, Edward Halley and Isaac Newton. We hear the extraordinary story of the quest for longitude and how an unassuming clockmaker, John Harrison, solved a conundrum that had perplexed the country’s greatest minds for decades. We visit the Greenwich meridian from where all time zones are measured and discover how advances made in Greenwich over the centuries would ultimately lead to putting men on the moon.
