I had meant to go before the fire. Now it is much too expensive to consider. The vessel is after all historically pretty much irrelevant: being a working ship of its day, rather than historically significant, per se (think Gt Eastern, Gt Western, Warrior, Trafalgar, etc.).

Badly damaged by fire in May 2007, Cutty Sark –the last surviving tea clipper – re-opened after extensive renovation at the end of April 2012. On-board displays are dedicated to the ship's history and various cargos during her 140-year lifespan, from tea to wool to buffalo horns. Visitors can also venture underneath the three-masted sailing ship, which has been raised three metres above her dry dock to afford views of the elegant hull that made Cutty Sark the fastest clipper of her time.
