Bring your children to see the 19th-century sailing ship, Cutty Sark in Greenwich, for an action-packed day out in London, visiting one of the world’s most famous ships. Venture aboard and beneath the last surviving tea clipper, the greatest and fastest of her time. Let the kids take the helm at the ship’s wheel and have fun climbing into the crew’s bunk beds. Or meet characters from Cutty Sark’s past – such as the ship’s captain or her famous figurehead, Nannie the Witch – and hear their stories about what life on board was really like.
There is a free family trail which you can follow or alternatively, borrow a backpack of toys and stories. Wander along the decks in the footsteps of the old merchant seamen who sailed her over a century ago. Kids will have a wonderful time exploring the different games and interactive displays on offer learning about the ship’s fascinating history and what life was like on board.
Leave plenty of time for a visit, as it is a real treat of a day out for the family.
