4.1/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web
The last surviving tea clipper (cargo sailing ship designed for speed) built before the advent of steam-engine ships, Cutty Sark offers a colorful look at British maritime history. Walk aboard to learn the boat's story--and that of tea clippers in general--through interactive displays. Head down to the hold to see where the ship kept its cargo. If you get hungry, eat in the Even Keel Cafe. The soups, deli sandwiches, and chocolate fudge cake likely represent much finer fare than the ship's sailors enjoyed over a century ago. The lower hold is now a studio theater, so check the schedule if you want to see a performance in this unique venue. Buy admission tickets for the ship online before your visit, because tickets at the entrance sometimes sell out.

  • I was visiting Greenwich with my sister and, having been to the Observatory, we had some spare time in the afternoon so we decided to go aboard the Cutty Sark. It was a bit on the pricey side but we b...  read more »
  • This is a cool example of a fast sailing ship. The captain and crews quarter are very interesting. The fees to get in are a little high but I imagine it is expensive to maintain such a boat. 
  • Me and my mother came here as we was doing some other site seeing in the area and we was yet to see the cutty sark. The boat is absolutely stunning to look at and has a lot of history to it. You can s...  read more »
  • Very friendly staff! It seems like a pub for regulars but they are welcoming to strangers too! There beer was good and we loved the atmosphere! Thank you to the woman who helped us get a table! X
  • Leave yourself plenty of time, as there is a lot to explore. I've only recently been after the complete refurbishment due to the fire... and what they've done is amazing. Standing below the keel and getting a never-before-seen perspective on this lovely old ship is just incredible.
  • Absolutely beautiful place to visit in London. Great access to local travel points back into the city and Thames boat trips back down to all Thames stops. Would deffinately recommend this to couples young and old and great for children. There are also plenty of places to eat and visit around the area.
  • Very good but a little small. Told the story of life aboard very well. The theatre was a surprise and I imagine would be very good to see a performance here. Amazing to be able to walk underneath ship.
  • I went to the Cutty Sark 2 1/6 weeks ago with GirlGuiding!!! But apart from my feet feeling like they're gonna just give up for good, I THINK IT WAS THE BEST PLACE IN LONDON!!!!😆😉😊😄😀😋😍😘😎 We also got McDonalds a few hours later.😏😏😏😏😏😏😏
