Royal Museums Greenwich, Cutty Sark

Climb aboard this majestic ship

Located in the UNESCO World Heritage site of Maritime Greenwich, Cutty Sark is one of the world’s most famous ships, the last surviving tea clipper and the fastest and greatest of her time. Famous for bringing tea from China to Europe, it now stands in a dry dock at the very heart of Greenwich. A truly breath-taking venue steeped in unique history. The ship boasts a spectacular riverside setting, with a sweeping look across the Thames, Canary Wharf and the City of London.

Cutty Sark was built in 1869 to last for just thirty years but served as a working ship for fifty-two years, a training ship for twenty-two years and has been open to visitors in Maritime Greenwich for sixty years. This awe-inspiring ship can actually be hired for a truly exclusive experience for up to 450 guests, offering a truly unique setting as the only place in the world where you can entertain beneath the shining hull of a ship.

Did you know?

In May 2007, there was a fire on board Cutty Sark, pictures of which were broadcast around the world. Although the damage initially looked devastating, due to a major conservation project underway, Cutty Sark’s original interior had been removed and was in storage at the time of the blaze. 90% of the ship in Greenwich today is original and was reopened by Her Majesty The Queen in 2012.
