Exploring the Mayflower trail

The Mayflower trail follows the journey of the Mayflower Pilgrims, the ship and their voyage through villages, towns and cities. You can follow in the footsteps of the Mayflower Pilgrims.

Visit the birthplace of Williams Bradford and Brewster and trace their journeys as they began to worship in secret and made attempts to escape from England. Find out how they lived for over ten years in Leiden, Holland. The story of the Mayflower ship and her captain begins in Harwich, and then onto Rotherhithe in London. The onward journey includes Southampton, Dartmouth and finally Plymouth.

It was from Plymouth, England in September 1620 that the Mayflower and her passengers made their final voyage to the new world.
