Cutty Sark reopened in April 2012, beginning a new chapter in the extraordinary life of the last surviving tea clipper, the fastest and greatest of her time. She is a living testimony to the bygone, glorious days of sail and, most importantly, a monument to those that lost their lives in the merchant service.
Venture aboard and beneath one of the world’s most famous ships. Walk along the decks in the footsteps of the merchant seamen who sailed her over a century ago. Explore the hold where precious cargo was stored on those epic voyages then marvel as you balance a 963-tonne national treasure on just one hand.
Even Keel Café
Come aboard and enjoy the unique experience of sitting directly underneath the ship in the Even Keel Café where you'll find our delicious range of homemade cakes, including our signature chocolate fudge cake with a hint of Earl Grey or our Cutty tea loaf, rich with fruit and delicately infused with aromatic tea.
Try our family-favourite hot meals, warming soups and deli sandwiches, all freshly prepared on site. Get the kids involved and sign them up to the special ship’s apprentice lunch!
