Welcome to The Matthew of Bristol, a replica of the English ship that discovered North America in 1497.

The Matthew is available to visit in Bristol Floating Harbour. Look around and talk to our knowledgeable volunteers, or take a trip with us around the harbour, down the river or out to sea. Book a ticket or book the whole boat. The Matthew offers a unique venue for a party, team-build or corporate event. 

The Matthew is now permanently moored alongside M Shed on Princes Wharf. All our trips now leave from here.
