The Peter Harrison planetarium was my favourite. I wish I'd spent more time there than at the Flamsteed house. Loved Dark Universe with Neil Degrasse Tyson played on the ceiling of the planetarium.

A great location that's always full of tourists. Still it's a wonderful spot for a great view of this side of London including Canary Wharf and the shard in the distance
