Bristol Pirate Walks

Add Bristol Pirate Walks to your Itinerary

Pirate Pete


Bristol Pirate Walks are fun and informative charting Bristol's often grizzly 16th-18th century maritime history highlighting slavery, discovery, trading, and of course piracy. Run by the very charismatic Pirate Pete, the one-hour guided tours are packed-full of interesting historical insights, facts and anecdotes around Bristol's historic Harbourside. During the walk, you’ll encounter Long John Silver’s treasure chest in the smugglers cave, visit Treasure Island’s Spy Glass Inn where the press gangs roamed, as well as uncover Blackbeard’s Lair in the medieval port.

Walks run throughout the year. Please contact for availability and to book.
Bristol Pirate Walks can be booked at the Tourist Information Centre or via Pirate Pete direct.
