Cutty Sark


Cutty Sark is the world’s sole-surviving tea clipper, celebrated for her record-breaking passages around the globe. Come aboard and experience what life was like on board a historic sailing ship and get a taste of life as a seafaring Victorian while exploring one of the world’s most famous ships.

Initially built for the China tea trade and launched in 1869, Cutty Sark’s original wooden planks and iron frames have been meticulously conserved.

Smell and touch samples of the original cargo in the lower hold – including tea, wool and whisky, watch the short video, play the interactive navigation game or download the new Cutty Sark app!

Learn about the ambitious conservation project and go inside an authentic piece of history. The ship was raised over three metres, giving visitors the unique opportunity to stand directly underneath this world wonder and see her elegant lines and ground-breaking design. It has now been developed into an award-winning museum and visitor experience. 

Enjoy a quintessentially British afternoon tea underneath the ship at the Even Keel Cafe. Taste a selection of Cutty Sark teas just like the ones the ship was built to transport.

Cutty Sark is set in the middle of Greenwich, with sweeping views of the river Thames, and is just a short walk from the National Maritime Museum, Queen’s House and Royal Observatory Greenwich.
