Although it was the fastest of its time, the Cutty Sark now sits in Greenwich Pier and can be explored and admired hundreds of years after her last voyage. Feel the ship's wheel in your hands and the breeze in your hair, as you stand where many captains stood before you as they set sail for far-away lands.
See the ship's famous figurehead, 'Nannie' the Witch, who, like the Cutty Sark itself, takes her name from Robert Burns' poem, Tam O'Shanter. In Burns' poem, Tam is a farmer being chased by a witch called Nannie who is dressed only in a 'cutty sark' - an old Scottish term for a small nightdress.
Walk the main deck and experience life as it would have been for the sailors of the time - but much less dirty! With livestock kept on the deck, and no working toilets, it wasn't as spic and span as it is now.
With plenty to see and do for kids and adults alike, a trip to the Cutty Sark is the perfect day out.
If you are visiting via train the nearest stations are Greenwich, Greenwich DLR and Maze Hill.
You can also get a boat to the Cutty Sark with various services and water taxis which stop at the Greenwich Pier.
