Cutty Sark Greenwich Events & Parties

Throw a party to remember in one of London’s most unique event venues, Cutty Sark Greenwich. Located in the Maritime Greenwich UNESCO World Heritage Site, this world-famous ship boasts four event spaces to host your next party, dinner, or large celebration. The Cutty Sark was built in 1869 to transport tea from China to Britain and was the fastest ship of its time. Now permanently docked, this is a venue that draws crowds for its stunning style and build, and for the history woven within its decks.

Make your way on a river cruise from Westminster, Embankment or Tower Hill before reaching this ionic river event venue and enjoy drinks on the Weather Deck as you and your guests watch the sun go down. For intimate private dinners, the mahogany-lined Master’s Saloon is a beautiful space; for larger dinners, consider the ‘Tween Deck where the ship once stored its precious cargo. Below deck is the stunning Dry Berth, where the Cutty Sark has been suspended three metres in the air. This large space can host grand dinners, parties, and elaborate events, all under the stunning copper-clad hull of the ship.

Work with your dedicated event manager to choose from a list of some of London’s best external caterers (including Kosher and Asian options), entertaining, florists and event producers, to throw a maritime event you’ll never forget.

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.
