Explore the fascinating Buckland Abbey

The one-time home of Sir Francis Drake, Buckland Abbey in Yelverton, Devon, is packed with fascinating memorabilia from the great man’s travels. Take a stroll around the furnished rooms and interactive museum galleries which narrate the tale not only of Drake and his adventures but also naval commander and explorer Sir Richard Grenville. Look out for Drake’s Drum which the great sailor took on all his expeditions and which is said to beat if England is in danger (the last time it did so, reportedly, was just before the evacuation of Dunkirk), pop into the classic 16th century kitchen or imagine yourself a graceful Georgian visitor ready to hobnob with the local bigwigs in the laid out dining room. There’s loads more to see inside but don’t leave before you have meandered through the kitchen gardens among the espaliered fruit trees (admiring the Abbey looming overhead) or inhaled the sweet air of the Abbey Garden borders where hydrangeas, camellias, eucryphias, azaleas and rhododendrons wave in the breeze.
