Cutty Sark will be open to members of the public for the Virgin Money London Marathon. Come on board to avoid the crowds and enjoy one of the best views of the race from the main deck of the ship!

Since the start of the London Marathon in 1981, she has been one of the first major landmarks encountered by runners on the route.

  • Come on board this iconic London landmark to watch your friends, family and the elite runners race past.
  • Entry to the event also includes entry to the ship.

Food and drink is available to purchase on board the ship

Space is limited to ensure everyone attending has a great view of the race - advanced booking is highly recommended.
