Cutty Sark Greenwich Corporate Functions & Events
Entertain clients, host a gala dinner, or celebrate with your team at Cutty Sark Greenwich, one of the most unique event venues in London. Built in 1869, the Cutty Sark is a world-famous ship, known for its beauty and being the fastest ship of its time as it transported tea from China to Britain. Start your event early with a river cruise from Westminster, Embankment or Tower Hill before arriving at the Cutty Sark. This iconic ship is now permanently docked in the Maritime Greenwich UNESCO World Heritage Site, famously suspended three metres above its dry berth to become the only place in the world where you can host an event under the hull of a ship.
Host a grand gala dinner or conference in this very spot as you and guests gaze in wonder up at the copper-clad hull and the city of London beams on through the glass canopy above. Consider the ‘Tween Deck for a smaller dinner surrounded by original teak planks and iron frames or the Master’s Saloon, a stunning space with original mahogany panelling for intimate dinners with just a few guests.
Above ground, the Weather Deck is a stunning space to host drinks and networking events; the ship’s three towering masts and overhead rigging create a unique backdrop to the River Thames and London skyline beyond. Work with your dedicated event manager and add an event enhancement to make your event even more thrilling – with bespoke tours, telescope viewings and more, all available.

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.
