To say that tea is important to the British is an understatement. But once you have the finest leaves and the most delicate sandwiches, for the definitive tea experience you need a stunning location. Welcome to the Cutty Sark café.

While Cutty Sark's days of racing across the oceans to get the finest and freshest teas back to London may be over, the tradition continues under its copper hull of bringing the finest tea experience to Londoners and our visitors.

Afternoon tea 

After meeting the characters on board and learning about Cutty Sark's history, relax at our café and enjoy a classic afternoon tea including: 

  • A selection of finger sandwiches
  • A homemade traditional raisin scone, Devon clotted cream and strawberry jam
  • A selection of mini cakes
  • A pot of English breakfast tea

Or why not make it even more indulgent by enjoying a glass of Prosecco? See the Afternoon Tea menu here. Afternoon tea costs £27 per person if you book online, which includes admission to the ship. Pre-booking is essential with a minimum of 72 hrs in advance.
