Full Description
Capture the romance and adventure of the great age of sail aboard one of the world’s most famous and beautiful ships. Cutty Sark offers the only place in the world where you can get married beneath the shining hull of a ship. With four decks for your guests to explore, and offering views of the London skyline, this venue is perfect for those looking for something historic but less traditional. Built in 1869 to carry tea back from China, this monument to the glory days of sail travelled the world and survived the high seas. The ship boasts a spectacular riverside setting with sweeping views across the Thames to the city beyond, providing amazing photography opportunities and a landmark location for your most significant events. The main event space in the Dock gives you room to host 240 for a seated dinner with staging and a dance floor - all beneath the copper-clad hull of Cutty Sark, suspended dramatically overhead. If you’re after a larger party, use the same area to host 450 of your nearest and dearest for a standing reception. With exclusive access to the whole ship, your guests can explore all three decks during your reception. The Dry Hold, ‘Tween Deck, and Main Deck each have room for up to 100 guests standing. The Dock under the hull and the ‘Tween Deck are both licensed for civil ceremonies. For more intimate wedding dinners, the ‘Tween Deck can hold ~60 guests for banquet service.

Delicious food and drink
The ship was a good choice of venue. Delicious food and drink for hundreds of guests (including vegetarian options), plenty of space for dancing afterwards. Warm welcome provided by attentive staff.

What an experience
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.
