Tearing across the Indian ocean, the Cutty Sark carried tea from China to the UK. Build in 1869, the Cutty Sark was one of the fastest Tea Clippers to operate in the twilight of the age of sail.  Today this majestic vessel sits in Greenwich and can host up to 100 guests for Weddings and Receptions.
