Queen reopens Cutty Sark – £50m restoration of the Greenwich tea clipper after a fire in 2007
The Cutty Sark has been reopened by the Queen in Greenwich.
The tea clipper has been closed for six years for renovations costing £50 million after a fire.
Her Majesty had opened an exhibition at the 19-century tall ship in 1957.
According to the BBC, the Cutty Sark Trust wants to 'present the tea clipper as it would have looked when it was launched in 1872'.
The Cutty Sark opens to the public on Thursday.
So, time for another look around.
