I loved our visit. The way the ship is housed partially submerged in a glass building makes it appear like it is sailing on the sea. You can go down and walk under the hull which is impressive. It would be a great location for a ball of other evening event. The highlight is the ship itself and unlike some... More

Our previous visit had been before the fire and having seen the Cutty Sark from the outside on many occasions since its restoration we finally decided to have a look around inside. The entry price at about £12 is acceptable but then the suggestion to add a voluntary donation (which we declined) is rather annoying. The displays and information about... More

The ship was spectacular, my husband an ex mariner enjoyed it too. However, this is a world famous tea sailing ship and the tea offered in the cafe was poor at best, served in a paper cup. Come on this is a marketing opportunity wasted and spoiled a good day in that we were anticipating finishing off our experience with... More

We took our children for a day out visiting the Cutty Sark after attending the O2 the previous evening. It's been fantastically restored and the guides and videos/information boards give you all the history onboard. We went on every deck and couldn't believe how much is accessible! You can pretend to steer the ship and even go in the officers... More

As you emerge from the foot tunnel, the first thing you see is The Cutty Sark and quite a sight she is too! Far more majestic than you realise from her starring role in numerous London Marathon shots!! You can visit the ship for a fee but on this occasion we admired her from the outside

We were not even planning to visit this amazing tea clipper, but as we arrived by boat to see the Royal Observatory we could notice it was a one-of-a-kind opportunity. Even in a brief visit, there is a lot to learn about the Cutty Sark and its glorious history. Besides, walking the deck is pretty exciting.

Lots of little things to keep you entertained like the ship, the river Thames boats, the museum, the cutty sark market which had lots of stalls with vegan foods! Highly recommend if you like exploring.

Wow! This was a highlight of the trip and I cannot wait to come back and see it again. If you are at all into boats this is a must-see.

Staying in Greenwich

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.
