  • London: Entrance Ticket to the Cutty Sark

    2. London: Entrance Ticket to the Cutty Sark

    Make your way to the Cutty Sark experience, part of the Royal Museums Greenwich complex, and climb aboard the sole surviving tea clipper, celebrated for her great voyages around the world. Initially built for the China tea trade and launched in 1869, the Cutty Sark’s original wooden planks and iron frames have been meticulously conserved. An ambitious 6-year conservation project saw the ship raised over 3 meters from the ground, giving visitors the unique opportunity to stand directly underneath this miracle of the oceans and observe her elegant lines and ground-breaking design. The Cutty Sark has now been developed into an award-winning museum and visitor experience, and your entrance ticket will allow you to explore her in full. Discover what life was like on board a true survivor of the seas, see the sailors' quarters and take the helm at the ship's wheel.  

    Visiting the Cutty Sark with my 3 year old grandson was a great adventure. We arrived by Uber boat and saw the ship first from the river with it’s tall masts standing out against the skyline. The staff were friendly and informative and we felt as if we were setting sail as we boarded the ship. My grandson loved exploring the lower decks and joining in the activities especially the interactive ones. Drawing a letter to send home and posting it onboard as well as navigating the ship home on the trade winds were real highlights for him. As we reached the top deck it was exciting to see the bunks and the galley and carpenters workshop, as well as having the chance to steer the ship at the wheel.
