Golden Hinde

1, Pickfords Wharf, Clink Street, London, England

The Basics

The Golden Hind’s round-the-world voyage was a triumph of the Elizabethan era. The galleon also took part in the unsuccessful battle against the Spanish Armada in 1589, an expedition also captained by Drake. The ship was deconstructed in 1668—some of the ship’s timbers were used to make a chair that sits in the Bodleian Library in Oxford.

The Golden Hinde, a full-size reconstruction of the original galleon, was made in the 1970s. It also traveled around the world, sailing more than 140,000 miles (225,310 kilometers) and visiting San Francisco, Japan, and the Caribbean along the way. Now docked, the ship welcomes visitors to climb aboard and follow an interactive self-guided tour.

When to Get There

The Golden Hinde is open daily during daylight hours. It’s typically busiest on the weekends, especially in the early afternoon, so plan your visit during the week for a quieter experience. London in general is busiest in late spring and summer, so consider visiting in early spring or fall for relatively smaller crowds.
