- The world's last remaining tea clipper, it is now 143 years old
- A restoration project for the vessel cost £50 million
- The 2007 fire was caused by a vacuum cleaner that had been left on
- The clipper is now displayed more than 11ft above its dry berth in Greenwich, south east London
- The space under the three-masted vessel is home to an interactive museum
- Most of the fixtures and fittings were removed before the fire so visitors can still see many original features on deck
- The Duke of Edinburgh has a long association with the ship and co-founded the Cutty Sark Society in 1951 to safeguard the vessel
- He came to Greenwich soon after the fire to assess the damage for himself and passed on advice gained from the fire at Windsor Castle in 1992
