About Cutty Sark ship's wheel
The wheel itself was restored in the run up to the opening of Cutty Sark in 1957 by a team of talented woodworkers, and the steering mechanism is one of the many original features preserved on Cutty Sark.
It's a reminder of what a triumph of engineering this tea clipper was in her day, with the ingenious design taking up far less space within the ship than earlier tiller designs - ideal for a cargo carrier.
Please note that due to new safety measures, some interactive exhibits will not be available.
