The Matthew of Bristol

The Matthew of Bristol is a replica of the 15th century caravel that John Cabot sailed from Bristol to Newfoundland in 1497. In 1997 she sailed across the Atlantic once more to mark the 500th anniversary of the original voyage.

Today, The Matthew is a much-loved part of Bristol’s maritime heritage with a busy schedule of public trips, film and festival work, corporate and celebration events. Entry, when we’re moored at the quayside, is free though as a registered charity any donations in the collection box are very much appreciated.
