The clipper ship Cutty Sark was launched at Dumbarton, Scotland on 22 November 1869. She was built to be the fastest ship in the annual race to bring home the first of the new season's tea from China. The ship's heyday was in the Australian wool trade, where she repeatedly made the fastest passage home from Australia. Today, 134 years after her launch, she lies in a specially constructed dry dock at Greenwich, London, UK. More information can be found at http://www.cuttysark.org.uk .

In the opposite direction to Cutty Sark is Gypsy Moth IV, a 54 ft ketch, in which Sir Francis Chichester sailed around the world between August 1966 and May 1967. This voyage was the first solo continuous circumnavigation of the world.

The nearby circular glass-domed building or cupola, is the southern entrance to the Greenwich Foot Tunnel which runs under the River Thames between Cutty Sark Gardens and Island Gardens on the Isle of Dogs. The tunnel was opened on 4 August 1902 to allow south London residents to work in the docks on the Isle of Dogs.
