The Matthew at Bristol
The Matthew at Bristol
In 1497 John Cabot set sail from Bristol to find a new trade route to Asia. Instead however he arrived on the coast of Newfoundland and therefore was the original discoverer of North America.
To celebrate the quincentenary of this trip, a replica Matthew was built between 1994 and 1996. In 1997 the new Matthew followed the same course as John Cabot in 1497 and sailed across to Newfoundland.
The Matthew is now based in Bristol Harbour and is open to the public as well as undertaking short cruises around the harbour. In the summer the Matthew sometimes travels further afield, exploring the wild seas around the British Isles and Northern Europe creating a spectacle wherever she ventures. LinkExternal link
