Follow the footsteps of those who sailed her, explore interactive displays that evoke the sights, smells and sounds of life at sea, sample a Cutty Sark-inspired cup of tea under the ship, enjoy sweeping views of the Thames, and walk directly underneath the ship’s gleaming hull to touch a piece of world history.
