We spent a good couple of hours, exploring this magnificent ship, seeing its restoration all around us, it had many artefacts and interactive information across its three floors, beware on the "tween" floor if you are 6ft and taller, you may need to duck most of the time. The captains cabin on the top was a delight to walk through.... More

The location is close to a DLR Station as well as boat pier so there are choices how to get there. It is quite expensive but the restoration is complete and the clipper is very interesting. Despite the large numbers of visitors at half term holiday it is big enough to accommodate them all without seeming crowded. It takes a... More

This is a unique piece of history and is presented very well. It takes us back to sailing ships like the Cutty Sark bringing us tea and spices. Imagining what life was like as crew on board made me appreciate my home comforts.

We took a thirteen year old last year and two younger granddaughters this year. They thoroughly enjoyed the day, but were confused by the use of imperial rather metric measurements. I know that the 'captain' was describing the situation in the 1880s but I have not used imperial for the past 64 year so.

We visited the Cutty Sark this weekend as a birthday treat for my Mother's birthday. I had pre-booked afternoon tea to enjoy after we'd had a tour of the ship. This was my first visit to the ship since the fire in 2007 and we all thought it was amazing. The refurbishment to the ship and also the new and... More

Cutty Sark is a famous tea clipper ship, sadly she was largely destroyed a few years ago by fire. When you walk around the ship what remains of the original ship is painted white. That said it is well worth a visit to get an ideal of the size of the ship and be amazed by how few crew were... More

Let's start with the bad. The cafe was expensive, understaffed and some people hiding not doing anything. The young man serving was very pleasant but rushed off his feet. The soup comes with a roll/bread and butter. This arrived after we had finished the soup. The young man did. Apologised and offered us more soup, coffee and cake. They just... More

A beautiful ship with an amazing history. It was super humid and there were tons of kids there on a field trip. It was still worth the visit. :)

Staying in Greenwich

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
