TREASURE ISLAND STORY WALK
Where the adventure began: in Bristol Docks

Back for the summer holidays

2pm & 4pm 21 August-3 September

TREASURE ISLAND in Bristol: the perfect holiday treat. Bristol is where Squire Trelawney found and fitted out the good ship Hispaniola, where Long John Silver ran a pub called The Spylass, and where young Jim Hawkins stepped off the coach from Devon to set sail on the biggest adventure of his life – the search for Captain Flint’s buried treasure.

Led by a professional actor in period costume and full of pirates and buccaneers; hidden spy holes; dark secrets, dirty deeds and lashings of doubloons.

Monday 21 August- Sunday 3 September, at 2pm and 4pm. Suitable for families with children aged 8+, you’ll hear the story where it all began 250 years ago: Bristol docks.

Here’s Squire Trelawney’s letter from Bristol’s Old Anchor Inn:

Dear Livesey

The ship is bought and fitted. She lies at anchor, ready for sea. You never imagined a sweeter schooner—a child might sail her—two hundred tons; name, Hispaniola.

…only the crew troubled me until the most remarkable stroke of fortune brought me the very man that I required… an old sailor who keeps a public-house, knows all the seafaring men in Bristol, and had lost his health ashore. I engaged him on the spot to be ship’s cook. Long John Silver, he is called, and has lost a leg…’

And what happens next? You’ll have to walk the walk if you want to find out.

Here’s what our audiences say:

  • The story walk is terrific”

  • Wonderful entertainment …thoroughly recommend”

  • Thrilling story-telling, enjoyed by all ages”

  • Perfect way to spend time with little pirates”

Adults £8, under 16 £5, family (2+2) £20. Cash only. Duration: 1 hour.

No booking required; meet at the start: Merchant Venturers Almshouses, junction King St/Prince St, BS1 4DT.
