Mayflower 400 for groups

The national Mayflower trail provides something new for group organisers, group travel organisers, education groups and special interest groups to showcase for 2020 and beyond.

Mayflower destinations across England have group friendly attractions to visit, can provide themed guided tours and have group friendly places to eat and stay.

Mayflower group attractions can be included within your existing group visits, or group operators can create fully themed Mayflower group packages for full day, part day or short breaks.  

The new Mayflower for groups guide is available to view here
