Cutty Sark is the world’s sole-surviving tea clipper and the fastest and greatest of her time. Initially built for the China tea trade and launched in 1869, Cutty Sark’s original wooden planks and iron frames have been meticulously conserved. As part of this ambitious six-year conservation project, the ship was raised over three metres, allowing visitors to stand directly underneath this world wonder and see her elegant lines and ground-breaking design.
Enjoy a cup of aromatic tea on one of Inside Out's Neopolitan side chairs at the Even Keel Café; located directly underneath the ship that was built to carry tea from China. The Neopolitan side chairs were selected due to their comfort and practicality coinciding with extensive contract use, as well as their contemporary design. Finished in a green and white colour palette, the Neopolitan side chairs perfectly contrast against the rustic copper hull of the Cutty Sark above.
