|Gipsy Moth IV|
King William Walk, Greenwich, SE10
Nearest station: Greenwich BR station
This is the boat in which Sir Francis Chichester became the first man to sail around the world single-handed in 1966. Inside you can see the cramped conditions in which he lived for over 200 days.
History buffs will be interested to know that when the Queen subsequently knighted Sir Francis on board the Gipsy Moth IV, she used the same sword that Elizabeth I used to knight Sir Francis Drake over 300 years ago.
Gipsy Moth IV is located next to the Cutty Sark in Greenwich. It is open daily from April to October, but is closed for the rest of the year.
