Seeped in fascinating history: right at the top of the list is the fact that this historic ship has a fascinating history including murder and mutiny as well as its numerous travels around the world.

You can also get an audio guide which goes into great detail of the history of the ship.

Plenty of interactive elements: once on board, there are plenty of interactive elements that are child friendly to provide children with interesting ways for them to discover more about the ship and what it would have been like to travel on the ship.

Enjoy the view that overlooks Canary Wharf: as you climb up onto the main deck, take a few minutes to take in the view across the river Thames or the lively bustle on the streets of Greenwich.

Explore the ship from all angles: since the horrific fire that engulfed the ship in 2007, the attraction underwent a massive renovation process as attempts were made to preserve what they could of the ship. Now, you can explore what the ship looks like from underneath as well as from above to give a real sense of the size of the ship and the loads of cargo that it would carry.

Enjoy the Cutty Sark’s afternoon tea: as a ship that was predominantly known for transporting tea what better way to complete your trip to the Cutty Sark than sampling a traditional British afternoon tea? Pre-booking for the afternoon tea is a must and the cost (£28.35 per person) includes entry to the ship.
