About Cutty Sark

Step aboard one of the world's most famous ships and, at its time, the fastest tea clipper. A sailing legend, Cutting Sark ferried tea from China to Great Britain, which was no small feat in the 1800s; never mind that the ship endured and survived the high seas and her storms, mutiny, and more. Touching almost every major global port, this seafaring marvel boasts eleven miles of rigging and sky-high masts that seem to pierce the sun.

Visitors will have the unique chance to stand on top of the ship's main deck, where you'll get unparalleled views of the River Thames and learn about the construction, history, and romance behind the famed Cutty Sark.

The ship's motto reflects its ethos and has become a popular saying centuries later: "Where there's a will, there's a way." Rising above the high drama that often tried to tear it asunder, the Cutty Sark survives as a living legend, a key artifact in nautical history, and a top-rated London tourist attraction.

More information about Cutty Sark

Traveling from Shanghai to Sicily and measuring over 210 feet (64 metres) in length, Cutting Sark was a world-class tea clipper that carried and imported one of England's most important products in the 1800s. The Cutty Sark was built in 1869 and represented the climax of one era and the start of another: this tea clipper was one of the fastest of its time and, in its traditional construction, heralds the end of the clipper era and the beginning of the steamship one.

The opening of the Suez Canal, and thus easier routes to China, signaled the end of the tea clipper. This route would take over 100 days for the Cutting Sark to complete. Now, the boat lives on as a nautical legend and architectural beauty of a bygone era.

What to Watch For

Cutting Sark was a British clipper ship built in the 1800s for the Jock Willis Shipping Line. Standing the test of time, the vessel has been preserved and restored to represent Britain’s commercial triumph on the seas.

  • Use your senses while exploring this ship. Get a feel, literally, of the structure of the ship. Touch samples of the original cargo in the lower hold. Over 90% of the hull dates back to 1869, and you can also smell the tea, wool, and whisky aboard the Cutty Sark.
  • Ahoy! Be the captain of this ship. Take the ship’s wheel and snap a picture as you helm the legendary Cutty Sark while overlooking the River Thames.
  • See history as it lives and breathes. The National Historic Ships lists the Cutty Sark as part of the National Historic Fleet (the nautical equivalent of a Grade 1 Listed Building). The ship is also one of only three remaining clipper ships with original composite construction, featuring a wooden hull on an iron frame.
