Cutty Sark Re-opens Today

Cutty Sark relaunches on 26 April

Opening a new chapter in the extraordinary life of one of the world’s most famous ships. The last surviving tea clipper and the fastest and greatest of her time, she is a living testimony to the bygone, glorious days of sail and, most importantly, a monument to those that lost their lives in the merchant service.

On completion, a new and immersive experience will allow you to venture both underneath and aboard this unique and beautiful three-masted sailing ship. By raising the ship three metres above her dry dock, it is now possible to view the elegant lines of her hull which enabled her to glide speedily through the water and made her so successful.

Explore the ship’s rich and tumultuous history; her various cargoes from tea to wool to buffalo horns, and the cultures and lives she has touched throughout her 140-year lifespan. After travelling through time and tide, take a moment to relax in the new café before continuing your day in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

If it is a nice day, perhaps you would like to combine the trip with a journey on the river thames with Thames Clipper or Thames River Services.
