The Cutty Sark is a famous tea clipper, a merchant ship used for trade in 1800’s. The Cutty Sark earned it’s fame as the fast ship of it’s kind during the days when major international trade happened via ships. The Cutty Sark is the last surviving tea clipper. It has since been made into a museum for all to enjoy and learn about. The ship underwent an extensive rehab after a devastating fire. Reopened in 2012, the new exhibit of this ship is very unique. You can even walk underneath the hull of the ship. You can explore the ship and walk in the exact footsteps of merchants over a hundred years ago.

The Cutty Sark is part of the Royal Museum Greenwich. The ship is child friendly and is wheelchair accessible  It was recently voted one of London’s most family friendly attractions. There is a cafe and a gift shop located at the Cutty Sark. We would suggest making a day of Greenwhich and seeing all of the sites there. It is just outside of central London but is still accessible via the Tube.
