Description:

The Golden Hinde is a is a full-size reproduction of Sir Francis Drake's warship, which was used on his round-the-world expedition from 1577 to 1580. Drake set out to explore trading for Queen Elizabeth I but quickly decided pirating Spanish ships was much more profitable. The ship, which floats between Southwark Bridge and London Bridge at St. Overie Dock, now holds a living history museum with crew in full period dress. Self guided tours are available daily while guided tours are offered on most Saturdays. Most noted for their pirate sleepovers, children (ages 5-11) accompanied by a parent get a chance to dress, eat, & sleep like a pirate. If you're not interested in sleeping on the gundeck, Pirate Fun Days on most Saturdays are filled with treasures and tales. Booking well in advance is adviseable.
