About The Cutty Sark:

The Cutty Sark is a historical British tea clipper famous for her speed, refined elegance, and iconic representation of 19th century seafaring. Built on the Clyde in 1869 she spent her decades long career fulfilling a number of rolls from cargo vessel to training ship. Her heyday, however, was arguably from about late 1883 until 1895, a period in which she worked the wool trade routes between Britain and Australia. During this time she set numerous records for fastest journey time between the two islands, garnering a reputation that made her the talk of many a seafaring crew.

Despite falling into obsolescence during the widespread adoption of steamships Cutty Sark's legendary status was cemented by the time she ceased trading in 1922. She'd become the last ship of her kind operating anywhere in the world, meaning that after 31 more years functioning as a training ship she was acquired by the then recently formed Cutty Sark Preservation Society, and transported to her current home at a dry-dock in Greenwich.

Now a member of the National Historic Fleet, Cutty Sark is a museum ship popular with London tourists from all around the world. People visit to admire her strikingly beautiful design and step aboard to learn about seafaring during the Victorian era. Interior exhibition spaces show the various ship's quarters in their original, restored state, and interactive display panels make the experience even more engaging. You'll also be able to stroll around the top deck and wander right beneath the impressive hull.
