The Cutty Sark is beautifully preserved tea clipper. (Closed for repairs). It was launched in 1869 and travelled between Britain and the Orient. She broke the world sailing record by completing the trip in only 107 days. You can tour all around the ship and visit the cramped accommodation of the 28 crew, a large collection of figureheads in the hold and the ship's teak lined Master's Saloon.

Situated in Greenwich Park, near the Royal Observatory, it tells the story of Britain's relationship with the sea. The museum itself occupies several buildings, the central one being the Queen's House an ex royal palace, itself of historic importance being the first renaissance building in England designed in the classical style. Focusing on the trade, exploration, and of course empire the museum holds collections of ships (full size and model), navigational equipment, paintings and relics of sailors and explorers. Even the jacket that Admiral Nelson wore when he was shot in the left shoulder and fatally wounded at the Battle of Trafalgar is on display.
