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 Britain 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.
