One of only three remaining original clipper ships, the Cutty Sark has become an iconic part of the London’s landscape ever since it was dry docked in 1954 for public display. She was originally built in 1869 and used to carry tea from China to these shores quickly and efficiently, spending six years in the trade. The Cutty Sark found further use in Australia and Portugal before emerging technology gradually saw her predominantly used as a training ship in the UK.
Stationed in Greenwich dock, visitors can pass underneath the hull which sits three metres from the ground before jumping onboard to explore the ship in more detail. Interactive exhibits display examples of some of the cargo it used to carry and character actors recall some of the many stories from the ships glorious past.
