The Golden Hinde was the galleon, originally called the Pelican, which Sir Francis Drake used to circumnavigate the globe between 1577 and 1580.

The ship was destroyed in the late 1600s but a full-size replica was launched in 1973 and, like the original, it has circumnavigated the globe.

The replica is docked in St Mary Overie Dock in Bankside and is now open as a museum ship.

What to see on the Golden Hinde

This is a relatively fun attraction as you are free to explore the galleon to see what life was like on board.

Staff on board are dressed in period costume and provide information about various aspects of the ship.

Visiting the Golden Hinde

The Golden Hinde is docked on the south bank of the River Thames between London and Southwark Bridges. It is a five-minute walk from London Bridge station.

It is a great attraction for families with children and it is also popular with school groups.

Entry is free with a valid London Pass.

It is a relatively small attraction that you can easily see in under an hour and a visit can easily be combined with other nearby attractions including the Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, the Clink Prison, Borough Market and the View from the Shard.
