Join us for lashings of BLOOD, BOOZE AND BUCCANEERS in Bristol docks. Our walking tour visits a few dockside hostelries along the way, with new revelations about Bristol born Blackbeard that will change your view of pirates forever.
The real Blackbeard couldn’t have been more different from your average, rum soaked TREASURE ISLAND pirate. So many voyages began in Bristol: even Long John Silver sailed to TREASURE ISLAND from Bristol docks. And by the end of the tour you should be able to separate the fact from the fiction - just in time for the 300th anniversary of Blackbeard’s death, later this year.
Meet at The Golden Guinea in Redcliffe, finishing near The Centre.
Cost: £10, advance booking only, buy your own drinks.
Lasts 2 – 2 ½ hours

Then Wednesdays at 7pm and Saturdays at 3pm from Wed 25 July until Wed 12 September. These are start times – get there earlier if you want a drink first.
