Graceful and majestic, the Golden Hinde is a living link to a bygone age of adventure, which has inspired countless tales of privateers and Spanish gold. It was in ships like this that English pirate adventurers such as Drake and Hawkins, preyed upon the vital bullion convoys en-route to Spain from the new world, disrupting Spanish trade and weakening her grip on the low countries. These were the men who precipitated the conflict between England and Spain which was to produce one of the most famous engagements in naval history - the Spanish Armada.
The raised skeleton of another famous ship, the Mary Rose, also allows us to take a firsthand look at how the ships of the Tudor age were constructed and imagine what life on board would have been like for sailors during the golden era of British naval supremacy.
