Enquire about this venue


The Peter Harrison Planetarium is a unique venue which can fly you to the heart of the Sun, transport you to distant galaxies or land you on Mars; an awe inspiring backdrop for corporate entertaining.


Located in the heart of Greenwich Park, the Peter Harrison Planetarium is a unique venue which can show you the birth of a star and the phases of the moon; an awe inspiring backdrop for entertaining. Hire includes a shuttle service between the venue and the park entrance.

Guests are treated to a planetarium show with each event booking, and the space can be used for awards, screenings and presentations. Shows can even be personalised to tie in with a client's interests or specific dates/moments of interest.

The Astronomy galleries provide a captivating indoor area for pre-dinner drinks and there are two courtyard areas where guests can enjoy warm summer evenings. Dinners are served in the central foyer.

The Planetarium is also home to the Endeavour Room. A private circular room with a high domed roof and walls lined with books and astronomical memorabilia as well as views across London, it is a perfect space for small corporate meetings, workshops or away days.
