THE FAMOUS tea clipper, Cutty Sark, will re-open to the public on April 26th, it has been announced.
The re-opening comes almost five years after she was ravaged by fire during a renovation project.
Cutty Sark has been, controversially, suspended three metres in the air, creating a new public space below it for visitors. The space will also be used as a private hire space for events, creating a new revenue stream for the cash-strapped project.
With the announcement of the re-opening, the ticket prices have also been revealed: entrance for an adult to the Cutty Sark will cost £12.
Children between the ages of 5 and 15 will get in for £6.50 and kids under 5 go free with an adult and there will be deals on family tickets available.
Holders of the council's Greenwich Card will qualify for the concessionary rate of £9.50.
It is expected that HM The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, who is the president of the Cutty Sark Trust, will attend an official opening ceremony in April.
