About this Tour
Visit this living-history museum and find out what it was like to sail the mighty seas aboard an Elizabethan galleon during the adventurous days of the 16th century. Explore the full-size reconstruction of Sir Francis Drake’s sixteenth-century flagship and interact with the crew of sailors as they tell tales of life aboard the Golden Hinde.
Visit: Golden Hinde
The Golden Hinde is an historically accurate replica of the ship in which Sir Francis Drake completed the second-ever circumnavigation of the world between 1577 - 1580, an accomplishment the replica ship has also achieved. The ship is open to the public for self-guided and guided tours. Her creaks, smells and low headroom easily transport the visitor back in time to a more colourful, but definitely less comfortable era!
Guided tours and family activities are provided by costumed actors during weekends and school holidays and it is even possible to become one of The Golden Hinde crew on an overnight imaginative voyage of adventure. During term-time, school groups can learn about life at sea in the 16th century.
