Venue details

Dry Berth

Cutty Sark has the ultimate wow factor – the 963 ton sailing ship is suspended in her dock, creating a stunning space for entertaining underneath her gleaming copper hull. This amazing space can accommodate up to 300 guests for ceremonies, receptions, dinner and dancing.

The ’Tween Deck

Originally used to store the ship’s precious cargo - from tea and whisky to wool and buffalo horns - the ’Tween Deck creates an atmospheric spot for your ceremony for up to 70 guests.

The Weather Deck

Overlooking the Thames with views across London and three towering masts and miles of rigging overhead, Cutty Sark’s Weather Deck makes a dramatic backdrop for drinks and photos.

The whole evening was a magical night that we will remember for years and years to come. The staff were so much fun and professional and we cannot thank you enough for all of your support, from start to finish, on pulling together such a wonderful wedding. Every guest was wowed by Cutty Sark and completely blown away by the evening that unfolded.
