The Golden Hinde

Experience the life of a 16th century explorer aboard The Golden Hinde , a full-sized reconstruction of the ship Sir Francis Drake used to circumnavigate the globe between 1577-80.

Located in historic Bankside, with stunning views of the Thames, we offer interactive tours and programmes, complete with actors in period dress. Whether you want to explore the decks for hidden treasures, or simply soak in the atmosphere of an Elizabethan expedition on the high seas, a visit to The Golden Hinde has something for everyone.
