With the popularity of movies like the Pirates of the Caribbean series, there is growing interest in pirate-themed corporate events and destinations all over the world.
Pembrokeshire County, Wales
Wales the birthplace of the well-known privateer Captain Henry Morgan (who eventually became the Governor of Jamaica). In Little Newcastle on the village green, a monument honors Black Bart (inspiration for fictional character Captain Jack Sparrow) who was born there. The pirate Howell Davis was from Milford Haven and Caldey Island was once a haven for American pirate John Paul Jones.
Every year, the Conwy Pirates Festival in May recalls the area’s pirate tradition.
Anomabo (historically Annamaboa, sometimes spelled Anomabu) was the capital of Gold Coast, Ghana’s name under British rule. At Anomabo in 1719, Black Bart was captured when he was second mate on a slaver called The Princess and compelled to join the crew of Howell Davis, launching the career of history’s most successful pirate. He went on to capture about 470 ships and establish The Pirate Code.
