Greenwich, South East London

Cutty Sark

Party beneath the gleaming copper-clad hull of a world-famous ship.

 This iconic venue in a unique heritage setting boasts spectacular riverside views, with a sweeping outlook across the Thames to the city beyond. After your guests walk up the quayside and see the iconic silhouette of the clipper lit up before them, they’ll climb aboard the Cutty Sark where they’ll be greeted with a glass of sparkling wine. Trays of delicious canapés will be passed through the crowds as your guests mingle and soak up the atmosphere. Afterwards, dinner is called, and the crowd will gather underneath the spectacular hull for a delicious catering experience by Moving Venue. After dinner, the DJ will start their set and the dance floor will hot up, before your magnificent exclusive party at Cutty Sark draws to a close.
