Cutty Sark is the world’s sole-surviving tea clipper, celebrated for her record-breaking passages around the globe. Come aboard and experience what it was like to sail this much-loved national icon.
Initially built for the China tea trade and launched in 1869, Cutty Sark’s original wooden planks and iron frames have been meticulously conserved. As part of an ambitious six-year conservation project, the ship was raised over three metres, giving visitors the unique opportunity to stand directly underneath this world wonder and see her elegant lines and ground-breaking design. It has now been developed into an award-winning museum and visitor experience.
