Brief Description

Cutty Sark Gardens is a landscaped area overlooking the Thames, which is of significance due to its position adjacent to where the famous tea clipper 'Cutty Sark' is moored.

History

The Cutty Sark was floated in the dry dock here in 1954, re-rigged and repainted, and opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1957. Until recent refurbishment of the area as a result of a successful HLF bid, another famous vessel, Sir Francis Chichester's 'Gypsy Moth IV' was also moored here. Following a fire, the Cutty Sark was restored and re-opened in 2012.
