Excellent guided tour of this replica old ship by costumed historian. Tour about an hour with information on Francis Drake, the journey round the world, the crew, sailing, weapons, living conditions, food, punishments, enemy captives etc. You can board the ship to explore at your leisure before/after the guided tour too (or self-tour at other times with handset).
Great for a family - perfect age 5-12 - guide gets the kids to act out roles eg turning the capstan to hoist the mighty anchor. Ship has 4 storeys including gun deck so lots to see. Good value at £20 for family (or tesco tokens - can reserve your place by phone).
Combine it with a trip to the borough gourmet food market just behind (expensive but interesting foods from around the world - lots of samples) and a walk along the Thames/over London Bridge or Tate Modern.
Ticket office allows you to drop off big bags.
Beware steep wooden stairs and banging your head on rafters - would not attempt visit with baby/toddler you'll need both arms yourself!
