Awe-inspiring dinners and receptions at Cutty Sark

Entertaining on Cutty Sark is a truly unique and exclusive experience. The ship’s gleaming copper-clad hull is suspended dramatically above the Dock; an awe-inspiring event space ideal for dinners and receptions, with a capacity of 450 standing or 250 seated. Enjoy sunset reception drinks on the Main Deck under Cutty Sark’s magnificent masts with breath-taking views across London, or treat your guests to a private dinner for 10 in the Mahoney-panelled Master’s Saloon.

The whole evening was an outstanding success and the clients were delighted. They have received many compliments from the guests, which is the true mark of success - it also generated a lot of tweets. As the guests walked from the pier and realised they were going onto Cutty Sark there was a real Wow! reaction and the cameras and phones all came out. The atmosphere was great and importantly, provided exactly the relaxed networking time that the client wanted
