Explore the beauty and turbulent history of life at sea on The Cutty Sark. This 150 year old sailing ship was the fastest of its time, famous for its routes to and from the Orient to bring tea to Britain. It’s now an award-winning tourist attraction, immaculately preserved for present day and future generations of visitors to come. Guests can take the helm of the original steering mechanism, touch its suspended copper hull and celebrate this triumph of engineering.
Across the floors that surround the 963 tonne ship structure, there are four event spaces of various sizes overlooking the shores of the River Thames. The most celebrated venue is the lower floor beneath the hull. It is an awe-inspiring space for up to 450 for drinks or 270 for a banquet. With added uplighters, colour beams will reflect on the shimmering copper hull and rise up passed the towering masts to the geodesic glass ceiling.
The location is amazing and the experience of dining under the hull is incredible. On arrival you get to walk through the ship exhibition and are then seated underneath the ships hull in an elegant room which is actually the dry dock. The service and food where first class and I would recommend the venue wholeheartedly.
As an engaged London couple you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to planning your big day. From venues, florists, food and photographers it can all be a bit overwhelming. My advice? keep it local… We made our way to the Cutty Sark museum for the drinks, food, speeches and dancing. A lot of fun was had!
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.
