Astrophysicists Royal

Technical Report


Astrophysicists Royal is an initiative launched by the National Maritime Museum to boost tourism to Royal Borough of Greenwich by restoring Greenwich's identity as the home of time-keeping and cutting-edge astrophysics research in the coming decade. An Astrophysics research lab and radio Telescope array, the facility offers a highly recognisable cultural and architectural icon to celebrate British precision design, engineering and construction.


The facility is enclosed by a public walkway and cycle path, an opportunity for curious visitors with views through the radio-telescope research facility and an alternative narrative of wondering through the already familiar routes through Greenwich park.
