To say that tea is important to the British is an understatement. But once you have the finest leaves and the most delicate sandwiches, for the definitive tea experience you need a stunning location. Welcome to the Cutty Sark cafe.

While Cutty Sark's days of racing across the oceans to get the finest and freshest teas back to London may be over, the tradition continues under its copper hull of bringing the finest tea experience to Londoners and our visitors.

Afternoon tea 

Join us on board for homemade scones, cakes and sandwiches, along with a pot of Cutty Sark tea. Or why not make it even more indulgent by enjoying a glass of Prosecco or English Sparkling Wine?

See the Afternoon Tea menu here

Afternoon tea costs £30 per person, which includes admission to the ship. Add a glass of prosecco for £5 or a glass of English Sparkling Wine for £10.
