Step back in time to Drake’s Plymouth and see the authentic spiral stairs, sloping floors and period furniture. Experience a real feeling of history.
New Street, where the house and gardens are located, has a deceptive name as it was actually built in 1575 and 1600 by a mane names John Sparke. John was a highly regarded man in Plymouth and was mayor in 1583.
No.32 the “Elizabethan House” is a late 1500’s sea-captain’s house, which was rescued from demolition in 1929 and survives in its near original state and is sympathetically furnished. Visits to the house, and nearby Elizabethan Garden to the rear, take you authentically back to the times of Sir Francis Drake and The Pilgrim Fathers.
