A few years ago it was thought that no one would ever see when of the most famous ships of all time, the Cutty Sark.
But after incredible work by many very skilled people, you can once again visit and explore the history of this ship.
The last surviving tea clipper and the fastest and greatest of her time, she is a living testimony to the bygone, glorious days of sail and, most importantly, a monument to those that lost their lives in the merchant service.
Now you can venture both underneath and aboard this unique and beautiful three-masted sailing ship. By raising the ship three metres above her dry dock, it is now possible to view the elegant lines of her hull which enabled her to glide speedily through the water and made her so successful.
Explore the ship’s history; her various cargoes from tea to wool to buffalo horns, and the cultures and lives she has touched throughout her 140-year lifespan.
After travelling through time and tide, take a moment to relax in the new café before continuing your day in the Royal Borough of Greenwich!
Tickets: £12 Adult / £6.50 Child (Children under 5 go free)
