Description

Sir Francis Drake, the first Englishman to circumnavigate the world, is memorialized in this statue at Plymouth Hoe. This was the city he sailed from in 1577 before his famous voyage, returning three years later, and was knighted by Queen Elizabeth. This statue at Plymouth Hoe is actually a copy of a statue in Tavistock, the town in which Drake was born.
