Take the helm of one of the world’s most famous ships, Cutty Sark. Moored in Greenwich, London, discover this 19th century clipper that raced across the seas delivering tea to Great Britian, with plenty of adventures along the way.
Possibilities members are given the chance to visit the last surviving tea clipper, Cutty Sark – the fastest and greatest of its time. Meticulously preserved, the clipper brings to life stories of life on-board this great ship. Built in 1869 to carry tea back from China, Cutty Sark visited nearly every major port in the world and gained fame for its record-breaking passages.
Delve into the adventures of this iconic ship in an immersive experience that brings its fascinating history to life. Follow in the footsteps of those who sailed it and explore interactive displays that evoke the sights, smells and sounds of life at sea.
Take a break beneath the ship and sample a Cutty Sark-inspired cup of tea, enjoy sweeping views of the Thames from the main deck, and walk right underneath the gleaming hull to touch a piece of world history.
Suitable for all ages, don’t miss out on this seafaring experience!
