Open Days on Drake’s Island

For the very first time on the weekend of 30 – 31st July, we are opening up the island for an exclusive opportunity to watch Sail GP from the best vantage point in Plymouth Sound and to enjoy the island at your own leisure.

Find a spot to sit and enjoy the scenery and atmosphere, bring a picnic and make the most of a beautiful day out in the most unique of locations.

The open days include a guided tour with one of our expert tour guides, after which you are free to wander around at your own pace and explore the island and for the first time ever, enjoy access to Drake’s Island beach

We have reduced the price of this event to allow as many people as possible to enjoy the island with us this weekend. There will be refreshments available along with our Drake's Island Gin launch.
This is a full day, exclusive event on Drake's Island, therefore tickets are limited. Once on the island you will be there for six hours. Children must be supervised at all times. The boat leaves the Barbican Landing Stage at 11am and returns at 5pm.
