Top ways to experience Cutty Sark
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Greenwich
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.

The ship takes less than an hour to go round and we did enjoy the experience.
Greenwich makes a good day trip from London as there is plenty to see and do there.
We went to London by rail and took advantage of the 2 for 1 offer on this attraction with our railcard making this attraction reasonable value for money.
Had we not got the 2 for one offer I would have said this attraction was overpriced but then that is fairly standard for London.
Worth a visit if you are in Greenwich.

It's a must when visiting Greenwich to pay a visit to this iconic historical ship which is looking great again sitting in its prime position on the Thames.

For many venues the opening times per day are short averaging 10pm to 5pm, with last admissions accepted at 3:30. Ridiculous. For example, at the Cutty Sark, having arrived there at 3:35 I was denied permission to entry by the not so generous chap managing a queue- less admission desk. Had I been there just 5 minutes earlier, it’d be no problem getting in, he told me with a smirk without compassion. I think a bit more grace would’ve been nice with advice for a brisk visit through. Had I paid with cash instead of using London Pass to get in - would that have worked? Probably, I’m guessing, which is a strike against depending on London Pass to get in. Despite pleading, I was sent away, and hence the one star rating.

We can confirm that last admissions is 4.15pm with the site closing at 5pm and this is relevant for all visitors whether with a London Pass or a walk up purchase.

Hi Go23208747624, thank you for the review and glad to hear you and the family enjoyed your time on board. We look forward to welcoming you back to climb the rigging :) Although children under 10 are unable to climb there are great things to do and explore across our other RMG sites for those under and over 10!

The three of us had an amazing experience doing the Rig Climb Experience at Cutty Sark with Wire and Sky. From easy booking and clear induction, a wonderful tour around the ship from Max and super friendly instructors at the top, the team made the experience a really fantastic and memorable one. Combined with the unique and incredible views from the top and the fun descent down, we had such a good time and could not recommend it enough (even on a day with sunny spells and downpours - just take gloves and a waterproof jacket!)

Hi Natalie, thank you for the 5 stars and review. It is great to hear that you and your group enjoyed our Rig Climb experience, and that all aspects of the process ran smoothly! We can't agree more that the views from Rig Climb Experience/Plus are truly unique and something to experience, even on not so sunny a day! :)

As a large group we went to the cutty sark and the more adventurous of us climbed the rigging.
The guides were patient and encouraging and we thoroughly enjoyed it. So thank you from all the children and the less brave adults!
Max was brilliant :)

Day trip with primary children so well looked after with staff going above and beyond to make the experience come to life with fun activities and a great tour even though we had not booked the tour. If you have all day as we did it is really worth doing all 3 attractions, Cutty Sark, Maritime Museum and Observatory all with excellent guides.

We have stayed in Greenwich a few times and admired the Cutty Sark but never been aboard.
This time we decided to explore this beautiful ship... And she did not disappoint.... So interesting and interactive... All the staff were friendly, helpful and Knowlwdgeable. I also upgraded my entrance ticket to the Rigging experience... Which was just fantastic. The staff were amazing... Encouraging and helpful. Good clear instructions throughout. I normally dont have a head for heights... But this was definitely something worth doing. Thank you
