Cutty Sark is the world’s sole surviving tea clipper, the speed machine of her time and living testimony to the bygone, glorious days of sail. Built in 1869 to carry tea back from China, she visited nearly every major port in the world and gained fame for her record-breaking passages through the wildest oceans around the globe.
Designed to last just 30 years and now nearly five times that age, Cutty Sark has been painstakingly conserved and lifted by over three metres, allowing you to explore her decks and gaze up underneath her hull in an immersive experience that brings her fascinating history to life.
Facilities: For safety reasons, wheelchair spaces for Cutty Sark are limited to three visitors at any one time.
The Master’s Saloon, cabins and anchor deck are not wheelchair accessible, but virtual access is provided to these spaces. Lifts offer access to all other areas of the ship, including the Main Deck as well as the Sammy Ofer Gallery underneath the ship.
Due to the limitations of the original structure, mobility scooters or very large powered wheelchairs cannot be accommodated on Cutty Sark. Manual wheelchairs can be borrowed on the day of your visit, please ask a member of staff on arrival.
There are two accessible toilets on site.
