Lanterns in Greenwich Market

The Greenwich Quizmas Trail is the perfect way to explore Greenwich this Christmas. Visitors start at the Tourist Information Centre and follow the route around the most famous and lesser-known areas of the village. There’ll be questions along the way, and those who answer them all correctly will be entered into a prize draw to win a night’s stay at the Mercure London Greenwich and a family pass to An Evening with the Stars at the Peter Harrison Planetarium, to be taken on 23rd February 2013.

The Old Royal Naval College will host its Tudor Christmas for children aged 5 and up on Saturday 15 December in the Painted Hall. Visitors will become part of the royal household to find out more about Christmas traditions at Henry VII’s favourite residence, Greenwich Palace, and make their own Christmas decorations to take home.

Spending the evening in Greenwich? Don’t miss Robin Hood – Greenwich Theatre’s all-singing, all-dancing pantomime with a star turn by Andrew Pollard as Maid Marian’s nurse. Oh yes, he is!

On 12, 14, 15 and 19 December, spend An Evening with the Stars at the Peter Harrison Planetarium. Visitors get the chance to look through the 18 tonne Victorian telescope, watch the festive Christmas Stars planetarium show and afterwards spend time on the Prime Meridian with a hot drink and a chat with the Observatory’s astronomers.
