Your children can take the helm at the ship’s wheel, climb into the crew’s bunk beds, meet her famous figurehead Nannie the Witch and other famous characters. There’s a free family trail or you can even borrow a backpack of toys and stories to help you along the way.

Cutty Sark reopened to the public in April 2012, marking a new chapter in the extraordinary life of the last surviving tea clipper and one of the world’s most famous ships.

Visitors can venture aboard and beneath the beautiful three-masted clipper: walk along the decks in the footsteps of the merchant seamen who sailed her over a century ago; explore the hold where precious cargo was stored on epic voyages; and even walk underneath the 963-tonne ship in the dry berth below to view the elegant lines of her hull.


Cutty Sark Characters

Come aboard to hear incredible stories, brought to life by characters from the ship’s past. Meet Captain Woodget, the ship’s most daring master; Jock Willis, the man who built Cutty Sark; Nannie the ship’s figurehead; or the ship’s cook, James Robson, who all have a special story to tell.
