Join The Sailor’s Challenge aboard Cutty Sark this half-term.

Have you got what it takes to join the Cutty Sark crew? Find out if you are ship-shape by taking part in our Sailor’s Challenge this May half-term.

Show off your sailor skills and complete our creative challenges as you navigate your way around our life-sized gaming board accompanied by Jack the Rat.  Will you be able to collect all the cargoes from around the world and make it back safely to England? Only the bravest need apply!

Once you’ve completed our challenge and proved you are ready to join our crew, explore the rest of Cutty Sark and discover the ship with our explorer trail or one of our Under-5s backpacks.  Head for the main deck where one of our Cutty Sark characters will bring fun stories about the ship’s past to life.  

Meet Captain Woodget, the ship’s most daring master, Emma Louise Ray, the mother of a young apprentice, Nannie the ship’s figurehead, or our ship’s cook, James Robson. Each has a special story to tell.  

The Sailor’s Challenge, Cutty Sark characters, trails and back packs are available daily throughout half-term from Monday 29 May to Sunday 4 June.

  • The Sailor’s Challenge 11.30-13.30 | 14.00-16.00
  • Cutty Sark Characters 11.00, 12.00, 13.30 and 14.30.

Admission charges apply, activities free with entry.
