It's the final day in our festive flashback and we salute the ships that have graced the Thames from Tall Ships to the Cutty Sark.
During Totally Thames, Sail Royal Greenwich bring a beautiful fleet of Tall Ships to the Thames for your boarding pleasure. These elegant, tall-masted ships sail down the Thames passing landmarks such as the Greenwich Observatory, Old Royal Naval College, the metropolis of Canary Wharf and Tower Bridge for a truly unique and unforgettable experience to test your seas legs!
The Cutty Sark, a British Clipper Ship has been part of the London landscape for over 60 years since her preservation in Greenwich in 1954. Built on the Clyde in 1869 for the Jock Willis Shipping Line, she was one of the last tea clippers to be built and one of the fastest, coming at the end of a long period of design development which halted as sailing ships gave way to steam propulsion. The ship's ties with the Thames go back to loading her very first cargo in 1870.
We salute all the great ships, present, past and future.
