The authentic atmosphere aboard the Golden Hinde, a full-size reconstruction of Sir Francis Drake’s sixteenth-century flagship, is fleshed out by a ‘crew’ in Elizabethan costume who regale visitors with tales of uncomfortable nights on bare decks awash with salt water and worse (no hammocks in those days and there was often livestock aboard) and the brutal justice imposed on sailors who stole precious rations. During holiday periods there are events and activities for children, who can take part in pirate fun days and sleepovers aboard the ship.
