The Golden Hinde 2 is a fascinating little tour. Our guide was personable and knowledgeable and tried his best to keep kids and adults alike engrossed in tales of Sir Francis Drake and life aboard ship. I booked online, which was a bit confusing as they let me book a specific time, then proceeded to cancel and rebook my slot without notifying me so I got a suprise on the day before while planning my visit.

It was very interesting and it's a feel good family outing. The tour guide made it very interesting for the children also by getting them to play parts.
