Cutty Sark
King William Walk, Greenwich, London SE10 tel 0181 858 3445

The Cutty Sark was probably the fastest tea clipper on the seas, voyaging regularly between China and Britain. During the age of steamships it became uneconomic and was sold to Portugal. However, during a refit in Cornwall and mariner and former sailor on the vessel saw her and bought her. By 1954 she had come to rest in a dry dock in Greenwich. Admission includes a tour of all the carefully restored decks. Nearby (exterior viewing only) is Gipsy Moth 1V in which Sir Francis Chichester sailed the world, alone.
