Cutty Sark

One of the world’s most famous ships, the last surviving tea clipper and the fastest and greatest of her time.

Built in 1869 to carry tea back from China, this monument to the glory days of sail travelled the world and survived the high seas. The ship boasts a spectacular riverside setting, with a sweeping outlook across the Thames to the city beyond. Entertaining on Cutty Sark is a truly exclusive experience, with four superb locations for evening events. The ship’s gleaming copper-clad hull is suspended dramatically above the Dock –an awe inspiring event space ideal for receptions, dinners and product launches – while the ‘tween deck – where precious cargoes were once carried – also provides a unique space for dinners.

The Dock

The dock is a modern space built after the refurbishment of Cutty Sark’s fire in 2007. The ship, all 963 tonnes, is suspended 3 metres above the floor, Cutty Sark is the only original ship in the world where guests can dine and entertain underneath. Her geodesic glass canopy, floods the dock with natural daylight, whilst built in lighting makes her hull glimmer in the evening. This is our largest space and is perfect for dining, drinks reception and dancing late into the evening

The ‘ Tween Deck

The ‘tween deck, built to carry tea from China back to London, features exhibitions about the Ship’s travels not only to China but to every other major port of the time, from Sydney, to Shanghai, to Cape Town she is well travelled and has carried every type of cargo from Wool to Silver.  Welcome drinks can be enjoyed as guests map her journeys as they are surrounded by original teak planks and iron frames that sailed the China Seas and Southern Ocean a century ago.

The Main Deck

Enjoy sunset reception drinks on the main deck with breath-taking views across London. Her towering masts and rigging rise up into the sky, creating a dramatic silhouette against the London skyline. The cabins as well as the eleven miles of rigging transport you back in time to the romance of the grand age of sail as well as the realities of life on board. Private intimate dinners for ten can also be enjoyed in the masters cabin as guest dine in the mahogany-panelled Masters Saloon.
