The tour will start at the National Maritime Museum's Caird Library for an up-close look at letters, logbooks, photographs and objects that aren’t usually on display. Discover what it was like to work, live and sometimes die on board a ship that was to become world famous.

After the tour, you will walk over to Cutty Sark, where you will have an hour to explore the ship before enjoying a special afternoon tea underneath Cutty Sark’s gleaming hull. Because what better place to have a cuppa than underneath the very ship that brought tea to Britain?
