Built in Scotland in 1869, Cutty Sark was originally designed to carry tea from China to England as fast as possible. This record-breaking ship travelled the globe and visited every major world port throughout its varied history.
Now at Greenwich, conservation work has raised Cutty Sark three metres above ground, allowing visitors to walk directly underneath.
Discover what life was like on board Cutty Sark, the world’s only surviving tea clipper, and fastest ship of her time – now an award-winning visitor attraction in Greenwich.
While Cutty Sark’s days of racing across the oceans to get the finest and freshest teas back to London may be over, the tradition continues under its copper hull of bringing the finest tea experience to Londoners and our visitors.
Join the crew on board for homemade scones, cakes and sandwiches, along with a pot of Cutty Sark tea.
