Sites of interest The Royal Greenwich Observatory is located in Greenwich and the Prime Meridian passes through the building. Greenwich Mean Time was at one time based on the time observations made at the Royal Greenwich Observatory, before being superseded by Coordinated Universal Time. While Greenwich no longer hosts a working astronomical observatory, a ball still drops daily to mark the exact moment of noon, and there is a good museum of astronomical and navigational tools.
The observatory is situated in Greenwich Park[?], which used to be the grounds of Placentia[?], the Royal Palace in Greenwich. At the bottom of the park is the National Maritime Museum[?] which also includes the Queen's House[?]. It is free to visit all these buildings.
The University of Greenwich[?] and the Trinity College of Music[?] are now based in the former Naval College buildings[?] between Greenwich Park and the river. These buildings were designed by Sir Christopher Wren and include the Painted Hall[?], painted by James Thornhill and St Paul's Chapel[?]. These are also open to the public for free.
