Escape from the Golden Hinde a Secret Studio Adventure – will you sink or survive?

Did you know that there are over 1,500 escape rooms in the UK? If you knew or not, what makes Escape from the Golden Hinde by Secret Studio that much more unique and special is the fact that is actually takes place on a historical reconstructed ship which is moored up near London Bridge.

The original Golden Hinde which is a galleon (sailing ship) was captained by Francis Drake. He was an English explorer, sea captain, privateer, slave trader, naval officer and politician. However Drake is best known for his circumnavigation of the world in a single expedition, from 1577 to 1580.

The Golden Hinde originally though was known as the Pelican, but Drake renamed her mid-voyage in 1578, in honour of his patron, Sir Christopher Hatton, whose crest was a golden hind (a female red deer). Hatton was one of the principal sponsors of Drake’s world voyage.

Now you can explore this historical replica of the Golden Hinde in a different kind of way, rather than just a tour. Get to learn about Drake as you take on challenges to save yourself from the sinking ship but will you save Drake along the way or will your brand him as a pirate, and leave him to sink along with the ship but don’t take too long in deciding as the ship is sinking after all!

I was invited down along with my crew members on a press related basis to help solve the mysteries of the Golden Hinde and find the lost treasure within.

Escape from the Golden Hinde by Secret Studio

Escape from the Golden Hine is an interactive adventure on the historic 16th century galleon in London near London Bridge!

The Golden Hinde is grand reconstruction of the ship Sir Francis Drake sailed around the world in the 1570s. Plus this ship also sailed around the world in the 1970s.

It is believe that the Golden Hine is haunted by ghosts from both journeys. So, the ship holds an unhappy mix of spirits like a dodgy Rum Mojito.
