Beyond South Wales: Cutty Sark, Greenwich

Beyond South Wales: Cutty Sark, Greenwich

During our recent short break in London, there were endless possibilities of things to do, in between sight-seeing visits and eating out.

As we were staying in Greenwich, it only seemed natural that as a family we should visit the Royal Museum’s award-winning visitor attraction, Cutty Sark, the celebrated historic sailing ship and fastest of its time.

There were great money-saving deals on ticket entries for Royal Museums which also allowed us to visit the London Observertory and Planetarium on another day (so be sure to ask if you are visiting with a family)

Jonathan Howells describes his visit to The Cutty Sark:

The Cutty Sark is one of the last English sailing ships built in 1869 used to transport tea (later wool).

The Cutty Sark had a speed around 20mph and was one of the fastest sailing ships in the late 19th century.

Nowadays, the Cutty Sark is a museum for many people to visit and overall it is the original ship with slight reinforcements.

The Cutty Sark is a very interesting and adventurous experience as well as being able to interact with the ship with many videos and useful audio guides.

In my opinion the Cutty Sark is a great day out for learning a lot about the ship and there is a lot of exploration throughout the ship to keep you busy.
