After Drake's circumnavigation of the world, the Golden Hind was maintained for public exhibition at the dockyard at Deptford, London, close to the Dog & Bell. The ship remained there from 1580 to around 1650, before the ship eventually rotted away and was broken up. It has now been replaced by a replica in the London Borough of Southwark.
You don’t have to be a member of British Cycling to attend - but it helps!
