Stepping aboard this replica of Sir Francis Drake’s famous Tudor ship will inspire genuine admiration for the admiral and his rather short (average height: 1.6m) crew, which counted between 40 and 60. It was in a tiny five-deck galleon just like this that Drake and his crew circumnavigated the globe from 1577 to 1580. Visitors can explore the ship by themselves or join a guided tour led by a costumed actor – children love these.

As well as guided tours, Golden Hinde runs a number of events designed for children where they can go on a treasure hunt, fire the cannons, raise the anchor, take part in games and listen to riveting stories. Check the website for schedule and bookings.
