Pirate Walk Feb 04Return to Past Events page
Do you know the origins of the Skull and Crossbones flag, why pirates wore earrings, and why they preferred cutlasses to swords?

We do! On a windy Sunday afternoon we met Pirate Pete outside of the Tourist office off Millenium Square in the city centre. We toured old Bristol, to learn of the origins of some of the most famous names in pirating and the origins of the city's wealth and standing in the global arena.
