Mr Monkey aboard the Cutty Sark

"Let's clamber aboard"

Mr Monkey scampered around Greenwich, looking for the entrance to the Cutty Sark. Launched in 1869, the Cutty Sark was built as a tea clipper, but made her fastest voyages taking wool from Australia to Britain. She's been in her dry dock at Greenwich since 1957. Mr Monkey found a hole in her side that probably wouldn't help if she was in the water, and went inside.
