Cutty Sark was built in 1869 to be the fastest tea clipper in the annual race to bring the first of the new season's crop of tea home to Britain from China. Now, at over 130 years of age in her purpose built dry dock at Greenwich, she is a beautiful and stately reminder of the glorious bygone age of sail. She has been used as a filming location on many occasions for everything from feature films, through national television network programmes to international educational documentaries. Her unique appeal as the sole surviving clipper ship makes her an ideal choice for period dramas, documentaries about the era of sail or just as a beautiful setting for filming a variety of programmes for television and cinema. The faithful preservation of Cutty Sark's interior appointments, particularly in the Master's saloon and the cabins, provides ready-made sets. Easily accessible from Central London by tube or river Cutty Sark is the jewel in the crown of Maritime Greenwich.
