We took our grandson for a half term activity this morning. We were pleasantly surprised to find the 2 chats, one on the minions and the other on the medical practices. Good info for the adults but so much fun for the kids. Just hit...More
I passed by the Golden Hinde on an early morning stroll, so I was too early to actually visit inside the Golden Hinde. Also, with it being February, it was evidently "off-season" and there was scaffolding and other signs of on-going maintenance and repair work....More
An exact replica of the ship that circumnavigated the globe. It looks so small compared to ships nowadays. It didn't look much bigger than a small yacht.
Unfortunately we could not board as works were being carried out and advanced bookings are recommended.
Date of experience: January 2019

Dear Harper, we're sorry to hear you had difficulty purchasing tickets online for the immersive cocktail experience when you were at the ship recently and were told that tickets were not available on the door. This event is run by an external events company and...More
This replica of Sir Francis Drake's ship gives a great idea of what it was like to sail the oceans in the 16th Century. It is surprisingly small for all that was accomplished by Drake and his men. The wonderful thing about this attraction is...More
The Golden Hinde is an infamous English galleon captained by Sir Francis Drake, that is according to my son. I didn’t know anything about this galleon before. He said he knew about it, as it was featured in one of the games he plays with...More
Wandering around this part of London we came across Drakes ship! Hidden between the monstous new buildings was sited this small ship in an equally small dock.
Good value if you love your English martime history. Give it a visit then head to Bourough market...More
This was an unexpected find. Was walking across London Bridge when we spotted the ship.
It was wonderful to see the reproduction of Sir Francis Drakes ship, worth the entrance fee. Took you back in time.
I went to the golden hynde ,It cost 5 pounds there is no concession,It takes about half hour or less,On the lower deck you have to bend down the whole of the time,So if you have a bad back its not for you ..Its quite...More
We decided to do a Birthday Party for my son on the Golden Hinde. We had previously been aboard 2 years ago during half term holidays and my son loved it and has been asking to go aboard again. So we planned his Birthday. From...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
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.

We have visitors of all ages including 2 year olds. You will need to carry them up and down steep ladders and make sure children are supervised at all times. Under 2s are also free to visit and there is some buggy parking.
