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 are provided by costumed interpretation staff during school holidays and it is even possible to join the crew on an overnight imaginative voyage of adventure. During term-time, school groups can spend a day on board learning about life at sea in the 16th century.

They are open 7 days a week:

10am – 5pm (November to March)
10am - 6pm (April to October)
