The world's last surviving tea clipper was the fastest and greatest of her age. That was over a century ago now, but the Cutty Sark is certainly still a venerable sight, perched on her glass pedestal on the water's edge in Greenwich. Following a fire in 2007 the ship underwent extensive renovation, and a visit now includes the chance to stand directly underneath all 963 tonnes of her. Visitors can also discover the ship's history and explore the many cargoes that have filled the lower hold, from tea and whisky to wool and buffalo horns. The attraction also holds the world's largest collection of merchant-ship figureheads, which were donated to the Cutty Sark Society back in 1953.

The Cutty Sark is one of the attractions clustered as the Royal Museums Greenwich: the National Maritime Museum, the Royal Observatory and the Queen's House.
