Where is Britain's Royal Observatory?

Greenwich Where is Britain's Royal Observatory?
The answer is: Greenwich

The Royal Observatory, Greenwich is situated on a hill in Greenwich Park in Greenwich, London, overlooking the River Thames. It was commissioned in 1675 by King Charles II. At this time the king also created the position of Astronomer Royal (initially filled by John Flamsteed), to serve as the director of the observatory.
The Observatory underwent an attempted bombing in 1894. This was possibly the first 'international terrorist' incident in Britain. The bomb was detonated by a 26-year-old French anarchist named Martial Bourdin.
