Cutty Sark Greenwich Events

It doesn’t get much more unique than an event at Cutty Sark Greenwich – the only place in the world where you can entertain beneath the hull of a ship. Now permanently suspended in a dry berth in the Maritime Greenwich UNESCO World Heritage Site in an impressive feat of engineering, this world-famous ship has history, intrigue and wonder in all its four event spaces.

Built in 1869 to carry tea from China to Britain, the Cutty Sark was once the fastest of its time, and now its beautiful features can be enjoyed in all their glory for your wedding, party, brand launch or business dinner. Host it in the Dry Berth, the large event space underneath the ship’s awe-inspiring copper-clad hull, the ‘Tween Deck, where the ship’s cargo was stored – and that still boasts the original teak plank flooring – the small and intimate Master’s Saloon, or enjoy drinks in the open air of the Weather Deck, where three towering masts cut a striking figure against the backdrop of the River Thames.

Make your event at Cutty Sark your own, with food, floristry, and entertainment from some of London’s best suppliers, and bask in exploring this breath-taking river event venue.

Venue Testimonials

What a superb place. What a buzzing atmosphere in the bows of The Cutty Sark, it holds 100 people in one theatre & 300 in the other. The bar area is directly under the ship, just Wow ! Plus the staff are very friendly & helpful to.

Adam M

Seriously, this venue really is unique – on the banks of the river with the masts rising to the sky and a copper plated hull under which to feast. As a Londoner its always such a magic moment to discover new places and especially wedding venues like this.
