Purchased a combined Riverbus & entry ticket, From the river is the best way to travel! Explored
the naval college and maritime museum at the same time - Cutty Sark itself looking rather splendid, going into the ship through a hole in the hull showed exactly how the ship was built, interesting facts and displays ongoing inside- mind your head on the middle deck! , outer deck able to walk about and imagine what it was like, then you can go Under the hull with more displays showing more recent works...

We do get time off for good behaviour so Andy & I headed to the Smoke without the girls, for a fun day of culture starting at the Sark. Its easy to find it has its own DLR station so no problem there, & well sign posted. Plus its got blooming tall masts which give it away.
A cold day needed a coffee first so 2 Cappuccinos in the Even Keel cafe were the order of the day, then the loos' & off we trot.
The keel is amazing clad in copper, with fingerprints left by many visitors, I'd love to get polishing with some Brasso!!The figureheads at the far end looked like an interested group of visitors spellbound by an enthralling orator.
The decks above yielded many interesting facts about all the various cargos that the Sark carried & the fact that it had other names when it changed owners finally returning to its original name when being rescued as a partial wreck.
We were so engrossed by it all that one & a half hours passed & we were nearly late for our lunch in the Maritime museum.
The Sark is well worth a visit, even in poor weather as a lot of it is under cover & plenty of interest & tactile things for younger visitors.

Took a river cruise to Greenwich and visited the Cutty Sark along with some other site. The ship is beautifully restored and interesting to visit. Excellent tours and guides explaining what you are seeing along with video to stop and watch.

Highly recommend if you had kids as they would find the ship fun and interesting.

Be very careful if it has rained as the deck is very, very slick when wet!

A really well set out exhibition. Plenty to see and read. Short films to give you background and loads of interactive hands on for children. Though the adults enjoyed them as well. Sailing a ship on a cutty sark route using a ships wheel was my favourite. Also has a lovely cafe with healthier choices than normal. The ship has been restored so lovingly that it really captures the imagination. Would thoroughly recommend.
