The Cutty Sark re-opens !!

Yesterday the Cutty Sark re-opened for the first time in nearly five years. Badly damaged by fire in May 2007, Cutty Sark – the last surviving tea clipper – re-opens after extensive renovation on April 26, 2012. On-board displays are dedicated to the ship’s history and various cargos during her 140-year lifespan, from tea to wool to buffalo horns. Visitors can also venture underneath the three-masted sailing ship, which has been raised three metres above her dry dock to afford views of the elegant hull that made Cutty Sark the fastest clipper of her time.
The Cutty Sark stop on the DLR is near Greenwich and this is a trip well worth doing. Alternatively, you can take a TFL ‘clipper’ boat from Embankment or London Bridge in central London (there are other stops too) for around £4.50.
