National Maritime Museum
Part of the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site, including the Royal Observatory and 17th century Queen's House, this is the largest museum of its kind in the world. In 2011, a £35,000 investment saw the addition of the Sammy Ofer Wing, with space for a temporary gallery and permanent collection - Voyagers - tracing the history of Britain and the sea. Elsewhere you'll find cartography, a ship simulator and naval models. The restaurant and café boast views over Greenwich Park, while the resituated entrance makes it easier to travel on to the Royal Observatory. Here you can explore Greenwich Mean Time and catch a show about black holes in the one-of-a-kind Planetarium (charges apply). The 17th century Queen's House, meanwhile, showcases an outstanding collection of fine art.

This stunning exhibition of artifacts sheds light on the fate of the crews of the HMS Erebus and Terror attempting to navigate the North West Passage in 1845. Their disappearance sparked a search that resulted in the wrecks of both ships not being found until 2014. This unique display of salvaged clothing, personal items and results of forensic studies sheds light on the 169 year old mystery.B£28.00d◄ 2
