First stop was the Cutty Sark

Built in Scotland in 1869, Cutty Sark was designed to carry tea from China to England as fast as possible. The record-breaking ship travelled the globe and visited every major world port.

Next stop was Tower Bridge which we were treated to a rare sight as the draw bridge opened and closed to let a sail ship through.

Tower Bridge is a combined bascule and suspension bridge in London built between 1886 and 1894. The bridge crosses the River Thames close to the Tower of London and has become an iconic symbol of London.
