Really enjoyed visiting Cutty Sark. Beautiful ship on the top deck and absolutely stunning when viewing the copper bottomed hull underneath, walking the whole length under her. Memorable was our tour with Captain Woodget, don't miss that, as he tells you the history, seafaring tales and gets us all to sing a sea shanty! Fantastic visit, even better with the... More

We visited the Cutty Sark in conjunction with the London Pass, and enjoyed our visit very much. The ship is expertly displayed, and partially enclosed (so it can be comfortably visited even in cold weather). There are short videos, as well as interactive exhibits throughout. Additionally, the ship is mounted so that the cafe is below the keel of the... More

We visited the Cutty Sark on a miserable gloomy day but it was well worth the visit. We joined as joint members for £60. Worth it as it would cost £10.50 each as concessions. We will be going again as it also enables you to visit the Royal Observatory as well as the Greenwich Museum. However, the visit to Cutty... More

I visited just to see the outside of the ship as I had not visited since the fire, a magnificent restoration job has been undertaken on the ship and it looks very imposing.

We have just had an interesting visit to the Cutty Sark in Greenwich. It is the last surviving tea clipper. Despite the fire a few years ago, the Cutty Sark has been carefully restored to maintain most of the original ironwork and woodwork. It was fascinating to be able to walk the main decks and imagining what long distance voyaging... More

This is a great day out. Its easy to get to. We went on the underground from Shepherds bush to bank and on the docklands light railway. Which took us to the Cutty Sark. Just turn left out of the tube station and follow the signs takes about 5 minutes very easy. We had a good look around and then... More

We got to the Cutty Sark quite easily and once we turned into the square where the ship is, it made the trip worth while as we could see the ship in all of its glory. It was fantastic that we were able to go onto and into the ship and then under--fabulous. We had a drink in the cafe... More

An interesting exhibition just to see how people lived on board a Ship was enough. When one cosiders the speed of this ship using sail only what an experience.

We really enjoyed our visit and couldn't believe the size of the cabins compared to others we have seen. Wonderful piece of history and glad it has been displayed for all to visit. Especially good for children, also good to visit after launch of Tennis World Tour Finals being held there. Cafe served very good food, comfortable seating there too.

I had not visited the Cutty Sark for years and was truly impressed by the way the ship is exhibited now, and the visitor experience. You really can get an idea of what life must have been like on board, and the restoration work is outstanding. Worth a trip to Greenwich for this alone.

Staying in Greenwich

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich
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.
