Golden Hinde

Berthed at St Mary Overie Dock, The Golden Hinde is an exact scale, fully operational reconstruction of Sir Francis Drake’s 16th century galleon that sailed around the world 1577-80. The modern galleon has also circumnavigated the globe, and is a floating museum open to the public.

There are five decks complete with 22 cannons and artefacts of the period while the professional actors onboard have extensive knowledge of 16th century life and how to bring history alive. Dressed in period costume the actors are excellent at working with all types of individuals and groups. Special events on board the Golden Hinde include the Overnight Living History Experience, Murder Mystery evenings, Pirate Parties and even corporate team building programmes.
