It’s a pirate’s life in London, with The Golden Hinde ship located in St Mary Overie's Dock. This Elizabethan ship is only a 3-minute walk away from Borough Market and is a replica of the ship that Sir Francis Drake used to sail around the whole world. Here you can learn more about pirate misadventures from 1577, and discover characters like Nuño da Silva from Portugal who was captured by Drake to be the pilot of the ship.
You can even enter the Galleon to experience its low ceilings and imagine the life of a pirate many years ago. The Golden Hinde website also has a bank of educational resources available including podcasts, play packs, interactive maps and activity videos for a well-rounded historical experience of this London landmark from home.
