Explore the Mayflower Trail

2020 marks the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower voyage... 

One of the most influential journeys in global history and a defining moment in the shared history of Britain, the US and the Netherlands. 

The anniversary provides a special opportunity to inspire people across our nations with the stories of that iconic voyage, exploring themes of migration, tolerance, freedom and democracy that have such a contemporary relevance. 

Commemoration events are being organised in eleven key locations across England, the events and cultural program will tell the stories of the ship, the Pilgrims and their journey.

400 years after the extraordinary event, a remarkable 20 million+ US citizens have descended from passengers of the Mayflower. We invite you to visit England and take the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of the Mayflower pilgrims and explore the incredible history.

There are variety of local and international tour operators offering you the chance to follow the Mayflower trail through villages, towns and cities via driver guides, group tours, specialist tours and cruise excursions.

We look forward to welcoming you.
