This is the fancy end of the Endeavour replica. Unfortunately it’s impossible to stand tall here, as the clearance is only for small people. No reflection on her crew, only on the refit. But with the angled windows, low ceiling, it made for a slightly surreal experience crouching around to see where Banks collected his bits, Cook planned his journeys.

Lots of fascinating artefacts and a great way to get as close as possible to imagining what it would be like to sail on a ship like this. Well, except for the sailing bit. We were safely roped to shore.
