Sir Francis Drake : Sailor, Seaman, Politician and Engineer is best remembered as an explorer. In his most famous ship, The Golden Hind, he became the first Englishman to circumnavigate the globe in an epic expedition of plunder and discovery over four hundred years ago.
The hardship endured in overcrowded and primitive quarters was unbelievable. Only 56 men survived with Drake, returning three years and 40,000 miles later, with a vast cargo of treasure worth hundreds of millions of pounds in today's money. Queen Elizabeth I's share alone was more than the country's national debt. 'El Draco' or 'The Dragon' became one of the most famous men in Western Europe, was feared and reviled by the Spanish and was duly knighted in London.
Step back in time...
Come aboard and explore the Ship that was home to Drake and his crew of seventy men. Experience the sights, sounds and smells of life aboard a Tudor ship. Feel the romance of the seas in the great age of sail. The Ship rises and falls with the tides up to three metres.
See the Captain's and Officers' cabins, how the crew and prisoners slept below decks, the weapons, tools, cannons, artefacts from the age of discovery, the ropes hauled by the sailors, the creak of the timbers, the voices of the crew, treasure, pirates and much more....
Are you related to one of the crew? Come aboard and see the crew list.
