Galeon Andalucia

Southend Pier & Railway

Get ready for an exciting glimpse into the past as the Galeón Andalucia docks at Southend Pier this summer!

Step aboard this impressive Spanish galleon and explore its six decks packed with fascinating exhibits and displays. With a whopping 320 m2 of open deck space, there’s plenty to see and do on this floating museum.

The Galeón Andalucía is a replica of the ship used by the Spanish during the 16th-18th centuries, in the maritime expeditions of discovery and inter-oceanic trade between Spain, America and the Philippines of the so-called fleets of the Indies.

The visit to the Galleon consists of a self-guided walking tour and once on board, you’re free to wander its decks, talk to the actual crew members (real sailors living on board), and check out dozens of interactive exhibits, videos, projections and historical documents.

The Galeón Andalucía offers something for everyone curious about life under sail, so whether you’re a history buff or just looking for a unique day out, don’t miss your chance to visit this one-of-a-kind attraction!

​Please note this is a replica of a 17th century working vessel and is not accessible for wheelchair users/pushchairs. The ship is accessed by a gangway and has stairs onboard.

​The ship may have to close to the public for safety during bad weather or low tides.
