Cutty Sark to re-open on 26th April

Date Posted: 29/03/2012

The world’s last tea clipper, Cutty Sark, re-opens to visitors on the 26th April following a five-and-a-half-year conservation project.

Promoted as a true London landmark and national icon of British maritime history, the re-opening of Cutty Sark launches a new chapter in the life of one of the world’s most famous ships. Group visitors will have the chance to explore this living testimony to the bygone days of sail.

A group trip to the 143-year-old ship will now provide a fully immersive experience, allowing visitors to venture both underneath and aboard the three-masted Cutty Sark, as it now rests 12-feet above its dry dock with a museum and cafe below. Groups can also explore the ship’s rich and tumultuous history, including its various cargoes from tea to wool and buffalo horns.

For further group travel information telephone: 020-8858 2698 or visit www.cuttysark.org.uk
