In the Old Royal Observatory, Queen's House and National Maritime Museum, set among 200 acres of Greenwich Park, Greenwich has a spectacular, ready- made site of international repute for Millennium celebrations. It should also be remembered that the reason for the choice of Greenwich for the national celebrations is the existence of the Prime Meridian, signalling the beginning of the Millennium for the world, by international decree.
Since the Millennium officially begins for the world on the Prime Meridian in the courtyard of the Observatory, the global focus will be on that historic building when the Millennium arrives.
