Well, it's a bit more than just a boat as it is a replica of Sir Francis Drake's ship. Can be a little tricky getting tickets, as the shop is a little further down the road, Still, it's pretty good to explore, though a little...More

My 9 year old son has become somewhat obsessed with Sir Francis Drake following an explorers project at school. He was over the moon to see the Golden Hinde. OK, so it's a replica....but it's a perfect looking one and feels steeped in history. We...More

Great attraction. Paid £10 for 2 adults and 1 child which we thought was great value. Spent approx 30-40 mins exploring the ship. Not for the very tall, or those with a bad back! as the ceiling is quite low inside.

A copy of Francis Blake's galleon “The Golden Hinde” can be seen from outside (or visited) between London and Southwark Bridges.

Look out for low ceilings. Remember this is a replica. Open to the public, but look out it gas been known to close for private functions. All the same it's interesting, it's not expensive, historical, easy to find and its worth a visit

A beautiful ship open to public. Unfortunately we found it was already closed, on our way in a hurry to Tate Modern.

Coming from California, near Nova Albion where Drake made England's first claim to what later became the U.S., I was incredibly excited to visit this site. I was okay with the price understanding that a ship like this and the berth are not inexpensive. Delayed...More

This is a replica of the Golden Hinde, the famous ship sailed by Sir Frances Drake during Elizabethan times. It looks good but costs £6 to go on board. Since it's tiny, that's an awful lot of money. Just take a photo outside it‼️

We had another visit to this full-size reconstruction of Sir Francis Drake’s sixteenth-century flagship and it was just as enjoyable as our first visit. There are some very low ceilings in places so you need to be careful and mind your head! The Golden Hinde...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
