The iconic sailing ship Cutty Sark is 150 years old this year. Discover more about the ship's rich history – and what the future holds for Greenwich's award-winning attraction
When Cutty Sark was originally built, it was only designed to last 30 years.
Cutty Sark is a survivor, having made it through storms, squalls, wind and even fire during its turbulent past.
That's why the 150th anniversary will be a year to remember, with a host of events planned to celebrate the vessel's dramatic history. Visit Greenwich now and celebrate the latest chapter in the story of Cutty Sark.
Cutty Sark is the last sailing ship of her kind, and we work hard every day to ensure she remains in top condition. Watch the video below to find out more about our latest conservation project, the Cutty Sark Figurehead Appeal.
