Golden Hinde I I, London Reviews
After a fabulous lunch at Borough Market, this was a great find. The ship, a replica, is Real History. You will be amazed as to how this little beauty could have survived a journey around the world. Guided tours. Tickets available on board. 'Pirate heaven' for kids. Continue walking along the South Bank. There's so much more to see.
A very tiny recreated boat, presently being refitted. You do get to explore all of the decks, cabins, and rooms. Great staff to answer your questions. It is great to see the details of the woodwork and rigging up close. It takes about an hour max if you take your time to study everything. Beware of school groups which can be massive in size on such a tiny ship.
I didn't go inside the ship so I am not sure what is in it as I don't carry money on me. However there is a little history about Francis Drake an english explorer who set off to the Pacific and came back with treasures large enough to pay off English debt at that time. There also seem to be a few works being done on the ship as there were wood cutting going. From this place you can make your way to borough market. London Bridge underground station is also near by.
The Golden Hind is an example of real history coming to life right in the heart of London. This old England 🇬🇧ship experience is a must for all tourist
W j.g at a wonderful way to spend an hour or so. Great for kids. The middle deck is not so great for adults (very low). My 7y thoroughly enjoyed it.
