Sir Francis Drake

Things To Do

Plymouth was the departure point for many an important sea voyage, several of which were undertaken by Sir Francis Drake. Born to the west of Plymouth in Tavistock, Sir Francis Drake went on to become one of the most famous names associated with the city.

Once the Mayor of Plymouth, Sir Francis Drake’s famous voyage around the world departed from Plymouth in the Golden Hind, and made him the first Englishman to sail the globe. Drake’s adventures are remembered with a statue on Plymouth Hoe, the view from which is largely the same today as it looked in 1577!
