    Tremendous atmosphere and the restoration work done is just amazing. Loved the opportunity to go to, and also touch areas where our ancestors had been.

    Easy to book, alot of information, we booked the cutty sark and observatory day pass so much to see, it was a full day, so much history, myself and my partner had a great day, everyone was so nice, I have to mention the guy who went into detail about the telescope at the end of the day, he was so nice, helpful and patient, it was the end of the day as they were closing but he was so professional and carried on with interest about the observatory and the telescope, what a ambassador you have to your museum 👍

    The whole experience was extremely well done and educational. My husband, from New Zealand, has wanted to go there since he was a child. His expectations where as good as he'd expected, thank you.

    Very interesting. Really enjoyable day. Easy to book online. The only issue we had one of my digital tickets would not scan. The person had to input the number manually.

    For adults and kids alike, the Cutty Sark has something unique to offer. Give your kids an opportunity to roam around the ship and explore the various exhibits that were painstakingly restored in 2012. On some days, you will see performers playing the parts of the ship’s former crew. You can meet Captain Woodget, the longest-serving master of the Cutty Sark, or Jock Willis, the man behind the glorious ship’s construction. The ship itself is elevated 3 meters above its dry dock, giving visitors an unmatched view of the entire clipper. From the deck, the London skyline is a breathtaking sight.

    The Cutty Sark’s cargo hold features blocks of information along with the copper cladding. The letters are bold and easy to read. There are also many fun quizzes engraved onto wooden flip cards, ensuring that your kids have a phenomenal time guessing the answers and learning about the era of sailing ships. The interiors also feature impressively detailed information about medieval sea routes, trade winds, and ship specifications that are presented in a creative fashion. You can also take the wheel and find out what it took to steer the 963-tonne ship. There are many hidden buttons to press and short films to watch in various interesting portions of the vessel, making this a truly informative and entertaining visit.

    Please note that multilingual audio guides are no longer available at Cutty Sark. They have been replaced by interactive audio guides that you will be able to download on your phone using the Smartify App. Smartify uses image recognition to identify scanned artworks and provide you with additional information about them. These guides are currently available in English only. Other languages will be added in due course.
