Cutty Sark is a true London landmark and national icon of British maritime history.  Gutted by fire in 2006 she has now been completely rebuilt using financial grants totalling £25 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund. 

Local residents will get a preview of the ship this weekend and The Queen and Prince Philip will re-open the shop officially on 25 April.

Her Majesty first opened Cutty Sark to the public in 1957 so in the year of her Diamond Jubilee it is perhaps fitting she returns to open it once more.  HRH Duke of Edinburgh has been President of the Cutty Sark Trust since 1951. 

The ships relaunch opens a new chapter in the extraordinary life of one of the world’s most famous ships the last surviving tea clipper and the fastest and greatest of her time.

A new and immersive experience will allow you to venture both underneath and aboard this unique and beautiful three-masted sailing ship and to view the elegant lines of her hull.

Visitors to the ship get to explore the ship’s rich and tumultuous history, her cargoes from tea to buffalo horns, and the cultures and lives she has touched throughout her 140-year lifespan.
