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.

Take the helm at the ship’s wheel on main deck and enjoy stunning views of the River Thames and the London Skyline

Marvel at the ship’s hull and admire the cutting-edge design that made her the fastest in the world

Touch different samples of the ship's cargo in the interactive exhibits and hear stories from the cast of colourful character actors from Cutty Sark’s past

 

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 here at Greenwich, conservation work has raised Cutty Sark three metres above ground, allowing you to walk directly underneath.

Did you know?

  • At Cutty Sark, you can see the world’s largest collection of ship figureheads from the Merchant Navy.
  • Cutty Sark’s hold could carry 10,000 tea chests at a time – that’s enough to make 200 million cups of tea in one cargo!
  • 90% of the hull is original, despite the devastating fire during the conservation work in 2007, because the original masts and many of the planks had been put into storage before the blaze.
  • The rigging is 11 miles in length – that would stretch all the way from Greenwich to Westminster Palace and back again!
  • Cutty Sark’s top speed was over 17 knots, which is around 20 mph.
