Wandering around this part of London we came across Drakes ship! Hidden between the monstous new buildings was sited this small ship in an equally small dock. Good value if you love your English martime history. Give it a visit then head to Bourough market...More

This was an unexpected find. Was walking across London Bridge when we spotted the ship. It was wonderful to see the reproduction of Sir Francis Drakes ship, worth the entrance fee. Took you back in time.

No matter how you cut it, seeing an accurate reproduction of Sir Francis Drake's 1577 English Galleon is mighty impressive. Pieces from the original ship were actually used in the reconstruction. Imagine, being in a port (like La Coruna, Spain) when this huge, menacing, black...More

We went on one of the hour-long pirate events. Our five-year-old children loved the experience. They learnt about the ship while playing games, hunting for treasure and singing sea shanties. Thoroughly recommended.

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

We have visitors of all ages including 2 year olds. You will need to carry them up and down steep ladders and make sure children are supervised at all times. Under 2s are also free to visit and there is some buggy parking.
