Cutty Sark

Day 2 – Cutty Sark, London

April 2015

The fastest and greatest ship of her time, Cutty Sark is a British sailing ship of the middle third of the 19th century. Built in 1869, she was one of the last tea clippers to be built and one of the fastest originally sailing the China route for the tea trade. In 1954 she was transferred to permanent dry dock at Greenwich on public display. You can venture underneath and aboard one of the world’s most famous sailing ship and last surviving tea clipper.

If you have reached Greenwich by the foot tunnel or by river boat, you’ll immediately notice the Cutty Sark.
