Built in Scotland in 1869, Cutty Sark was designed to carry tea from China to England as fast as possible. The record-breaking ship travelled the globe and visited every major world port.
Now on terra firma here at Greenwich, Cutty Sark has been raised three metres above ground, allowing you to walk directly underneath and touch the original hull planks and iron framework. Come on board legendary Cutty Sark and take the helm at the ship’s wheel, explore the sailors' quarters and come face to face with famous figurehead, Nannie.
