Greenwich's Cutty Sark, the world’s sole surviving tea clipper, makes a spectacular and memorable setting for corporate and private evening events. Cutty Sark is the only place in the world where you can entertain beneath the shining hull of a world-renowned ship. In admiration of her beauty and in recognition of her fame she has been preserved for the nation and is now available as a unique and stunning event venue.
The name Cutty Sark comes from the poem Tam o' Shanter by Robert Burns that tells of a witch wearing a ‘cutty sark’
The Cutty Sark was built in Scotland in 1869, and was designed to carry tea, as fast as possible, from China to England. The revolutionary ship visited every major world port over her half a century in operation.
Now on dry land in Greenwich, Cutty Sark has been raised three metres above ground, allowing visitors to walk directly underneath and touch the original hull planks and iron framework. The dry berth is a magical space to dine and entertain be it a corporate dinner or wedding. Both the Tween Deck, which would have originally been used to store goods for transport, and The Master's Saloon are also available for hire.
Through innovative lighting design, unique sets and award-winning floral design our team of specialists can work with you to make your event at the Cutty Sark truly unique. Be it a fashion show beneath the hull of the historic clipper or a drinks reception set against the backdrop of the Thames we will work with you to create your world.
Harbour & Jones is an award-winning London events caterer. To celebrate their 1000th event, we had the pleasure of transforming the space surrounding the Cutty Sark - with the goal of providing an incredible experience for 200 guests.View the full case study
