The Golden Hind in Brixham Harbour, is one of only two full sized replicas in the world of 16th century explorer and privateer Sir Francis Drake's famous ship. The Ship has been a feature of picturesque Brixham harbour for over fifty years, entertaining and educating thousands of visitors during this time - as well as being featured on many tv programmes and films. The Ship is open come rain or shine and is an all weather attraction with many indoor displays as well as wide open decks and on-board activities.

Quick fun for kids but very expensive for what it is a classic attraction for Brixham that should be done at least once

We visited today in less than pleasant weather but the kids had a great time followed all the clues for the treasure trail. The staff were very engaging and the adults enjoyed reading the historical information. Really enjoyed it.

Plenty to see and do aboard the boat. It will keep the kids amused for a good hour and teach them a little history at the same time.

The Golden Hind, as well as looking beautiful, is a "must-do" - especially for kids. There is a lot of information on there and kids get a treasure trail map. Well worth going aboard!More
