“Excellent research… charismatic delivery… comedy… with a little vicarious thrill of terror” – Bristol24/7 Edward Teach – aka Blackbeard – was the world’s most infamous pirate. It’s said he was born in Bristol, but no records survive. New research in Jamaica has proved the Teach family’s West Country origins – and a Blackbeard very different from your stereotype, rum-soaked TREASURE ISLAND pirate. But still very scary indeed. Your fully qualified pirate guide is accompanied by Ted the fact-checking parrot – and the worst pirate jokes you’ll ever hear. Walk in Blackbeard’s footsteps around Bristol docks, find out what we do know about him and pause at a couple of dockside hostelries. By the end of the tour you’ll separate the fact from the fiction and you’ll never be short of a story down the pub again.
