The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Southwark
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 attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.

This replica is being renovated so you can only see the outside. Worth a minute or so to have a look at it, but I wouldn’t bother going specially.

Even more interesting to watch the repair and conservation work using authentic materials and techniques.

Cruised by this as we headed to Greenwich, though we couldn't see much, the commentary was informative.

I was so impressed with the Golden Hinde guides/staff on our visit this weekend - they kept our young children aged six and four enthralled with tales of life at sea in the 16th century and the grisly practices of barber surgeons. An excellent attraction and great value for money.

This sight discriminates against disabled people by being completely inaccessible for people on wheelchairs. I wanted to bring my 7 year old who is learning about ships at school . However no attempts have been made to make it accessible to this with reduced mobility . Shame shame on Golden Hinde ....

This is only the 2nd Golden Hinde to be built the 1st being the one Sir Francis Drake sailed in to discover new worlds and bring back treasures for Queen Elizabeth 1st. It was Drake who brought back tobacco.
It's not a very big boat and it's hard to believe it made the journey but it's a fascinating story. All the staff are dressed up and tell you the story in detail.
It's being restored at the moment so it covered in scaffolding but its still worth the stop.

Walking past this famous replica of Francis Drake’s ship, and pausing to read an information board, a total stranger enthusiastically encouraged us to go onboard as she found it fascinating. The entrance fee was just £5 per adult. Is this the best visitor attraction at that price we wonder? We are so pleased we followed her advice- we very much enjoyed our tour of the ship. The talks given by their excellent staff were so interesting and very informative. Highly recommended.

Accidentally strolled upon this attraction, for £5 it was superb value for money. Very helpful staff with historic talks frequently taking place. Well worth a visit.

Visited with our 2 year old who loved ot. Still talking about seeing cannons and the captains table now.
It's a smaller replica of the original and the mid deck is very low so you do have to crouch down there.
Could do with more information around the ship itself though the leaflet given is very informative.
