London, 25 April (EFE). (Camera: Cristina Gallardo).- The emblematic 19th-century clipper Cutty Sark is set to reopen to visitors in Greenwich on Thursday, five years after it was heavily damaged by fire. Queen Elizabeth will be the first to tour the restored tea clipper, the only surviving vessel of its kind.
Restoration of the Cutty Sark cost more than 40 million dollars and was completed in time to coincide with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee this year. It also coincides with the nearby National Maritime Museum's 75th anniversary and a new exhibition dedicated to the monarch featuring paintings, manuscripts and other artefacts
