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.

Great opportunity to show the family some interesting history in a hands-on environment. The children really enjoyed hearing the details of life on the ship for the sailors, and the chance to see things up close. The ship is quite small (of course!) and it only takes about 45 minutes to tour around but it was engaging and informative - staff were friendly, and even gave the children a free postcard to take to school after their holidays! A little pricey, but worthwhile and I would recommend it for any family.

Came across the Golden HInd by accident. Decided to go on board and was treated to an excellent hour long tour. The guide was brilliantly entertaining and completely engaging, never seen four year old boys sit so still!.
My daughter 10 and son 14 also loved it, as did we. Really interesting tour and highly recommend.

History by the bucket load. Friendly staff in the shop and suitable for tall and fat people :) Plenty to read and listen to. Very evocative of times gone past.

Not expensive by today's standards, you can stay on as long as you like, enchanting for my two young grandsons aged 4& 2 who love pirates. More to see than you think as you can go below deck. A great little attraction.

Half hour tops to walk around this ship but interesting nevertheless, both above and below decks. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Kids enjoyed exploring, although the youngest found the below decks a little scary as it's quite dark. Maybe a little over priced for the time it takes to walk round but nice views of the harbour from the ship and a few unique photo opportunities.
