The Cutty Sark is a historic sailing ship which has been converted into a museum in a specially built drydock in Greenwich.
Built in Scotland in 1869 as one of the last tea clippers (fast trans-oceanic trading ships) before steamships made sail obsolete, the ship is listed as a National Historic Ships as part of the National Historic Fleet (the nautical equivalent of a Grade 1 Listed Building).
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, you need to book the time-slot for your visit in advance. Probably also due to COVID, admission prices have been bumped up slightly to £15.00 for adults and £7.50 for kids. The Royal Museums Greenwich Day Pass also gives access to the Cutty Sark along with the Royal Observatory for £25.00 and £12.50 for adults and children respectively, a saving of £6.00/£6.00 over buying separate tickets for each.
The National Maritime Museum and Greenwich Park are both located nearby.
