Cutty Sark Clipper Ship
London, Greater London
STOP PRESS: The Cutty Sark remains closed following a major fire onboard, which has severely damaged much of the famous 19th Century ship.
On the afternoon of Monday, 22nd November, 1869, a beautiful little tea clipper ship of 963 tons was launched from Scott and Linton´s shipyard at Dumbarton, on the Clyde. She bore a name that was to become famous throughout the world and was destined to win a place in the hearts of British seamen second only to Nelson´s immortal Victory herself. Her name was the Cutty Sark.
In December 1954 she was moved into a specially constructed dry dock at Greenwich. Since her official opening in 1957 by HM The Queen, Cutty Sark has been visited by over 15 million people from all over the world.
Now, 134 years after her launch (long since outliving her life expectancy of just 30 years), she is still a beautiful vessel, delighting her visitors.
Cutty Sark is open every day, all year round from 10am to 5pm, except: Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
