Exploring Cutty Sark
Cutty Sark sits in what once was a dry dock. After she was brought to Greenwich in 1954, the dry dock was closed off and the ship is now an appreciable distance from the river.
As part of the renovations that were completed in 2012, the ship's berthing arrangements were changed significantly. She is now suspended over what had been the floor of the drydock by steel beams. In addition, the lower portion of the ship was enclosed in a glass and metal structure. As a result, what once was a dry dock is now a building.
The main entrance to the building is near the stern of the ship. Inside is a gift shop and counters at which you purchase admission tickets. Walking past a diorama of a Victorian dockyard on your right, you enter Cutty Sark through a door that has been cut into her starboard side.
