Edward Teach, the world’s most infamous pirate, was a Bristol boy. Or was he? New research in Jamaica has revealed his West Country origins – and a Blackbeard very different from your rum-soaked TREASURE ISLAND pirate… but still very scary indeed. Your pirate guide and Ted the fact-checking parrot know the worst pirate jokes you’ll ever hear. Walk in Blackbeard’s footsteps, discover what we do know, and pause at a couple of dockside hostelries. We separate the fact from the fiction and you’ll never be short of a story down the pub again.

NEW FOR 2023: revelations about Blackbeard and Stede Bonnet – star of OUR FLAG MEANS DEATH – and Stede’s Bristol family! And Sea Shanties after the tour — The Llandoger Trow’s Sea Shanty Night follows our tour — stay and join in — it’s free!

“excellent research… charismatic delivery… comedy… with a little vicarious thrill of terror” – Bristol 247
