Craig’ London blog> Craig’s Golden Hinde review  I’ve written a review and posted some photos on my blog

Become part of Sir Francis Drake's crew and spend a night on the Golden Hinde -- a faithful replica of the ship that carried the Elizabethan pirate and adventurer around the world!

On arrival your child will be dressed in Tudor clothes and taken aboard where the captain will train them in navigation, surgery and gunning. After an evening of fun activities they will settle down to sleep on the gun deck. But remember... the Spanish could strike at any time!

A Tudor-style dinner will be provided in the evening, along with a tasty breakfast in the morning.

Note: This event is suitable for children aged between 6 and 11, and they must be accompanied by an adult. There is a maximum of ten people per booking.

 Guest – “What is the sleeping accommodation please .As a very fit old Granny just wondering?”

Admin – “it's on the gun deck itself (which is a hard wooden floor). they can provide heaters and blankets, but you need to bring your own roll mat or sleeping bag.bear in mind that the gun deck is very cramped -- it's not even tall enough to walk around in. you literally have to stoop over like a bent 'L'.have a read of Craig's review on the blog to see what the gun deck is likethere are no proper toilets onboard either (just an emergency chemical toilet for nighttime). if you need a proper bathroom then you have to disembark the boat and walk a very short distance down the road”
