The Cutty Sark is a British tea clipper ship that was built in Scotland in 1869 and her maiden voyage was in 1870 from London to Shanghai. Tea Clippers were designed to offer fast transport of tea and other goods from China to England and the Cutty Sark was one of the fastest.
This impressive sailing ship now stands as a museum near the banks of the River Thames outside the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. A great attraction for families who can board, meet the crew and learn about the ships history and dangers of life at sea.
It is recommended that you visit by using the Docklands Light Rail station located nearby. You can also catch one of the many river ferries and cruises that make the regular trip to Greenwich.
