Take a voyage of discovery to 13th Century Buckland Abbey, the home of Sir Francis Drake. The story of this medieval monastery, which was uniquely converted into a Tudor home, unfolds through exhibitions, ancient buildings and furnished rooms. Explore the legendary life of Sir Francis Drake, his circumnavigation and the story of the Armada. See the Drake memorabilia, including his famous drum and standards. Exciting new exhibitions for 2003.

A beautiful new Elizabethan garden has been created which complements the unusual box hedged garden beside the massive stone Great Barn. The Estate offers miles of lovely walks.
