Working to preserve the Golden Hinde for future generations

Golden Hinde is a non-profit organisation whose aim is to maintain and preserve the Golden Hinde for educational and public use, ensuring its history and legacy remain an important part of English heritage.

Through a wide range of programmes and special events, we hope to engage with individuals both young and old and become a leading centre of learning about Sir Francis Drake, Tudor history, and the beginnings of the British sea-faring tradition.

As an entirely self-funded non-profit, we use all income generated from hire, bookings, and ticket sales to maintain the ship for future audiences to enjoy.

Our work includes day-to-day tasks such as sanding and painting, as well as long-term projects like the major restoration work we undertook in 2012.

We are also constantly fundraising to ensure the Golden Hinde does not fall into disrepair – a fate that befell the original Golden Hinde in the early seventeenth century.

If you would like to support our valuable work and help us preserve the ship for future generations, we welcome both personal and corporate donations.

Alternatively, should you be able to spare a few hours on a regular basis, we are always in need of volunteers in a variety of roles. Click here for current vacancies.

We look forward to welcoming you in the future and thank you for your support.

Best regards,

Troy Richards
CEO, Golden Hinde
