It’s one thing reading about the incredible hardships the sailors on Francis Drake’s Golden Hind suffered as they circumnavigated the globe with their captain but quite another to step aboard the ship and get a feel of it in person. This full-sized replica of the ship that brought dread and fear to the Spanish is docked in Brixham Harbour and is a superb way for children and adults alike to understand what life was like on the high seas in Tudor times and begin to understand the hero status of Drake, who plundered untold wealth from the Spaniards. Scramble below decks to witness the unbearably cramped conditions of the seamen then go and see how the other half lived in the captain’s and officers’ cabins. There are also great displays of the weapons, tools, cannons and artefacts from this golden age of discovery to explore.
