1620 Yomp and Chomp, Southampton

This is a walking and eating tour exploring the food and history from 400 years ago when the Mayflower sailed from West Quay in late July 1620.

Many of the buildings that still exist in Southampton would have been seen by the Pilgrims as they spent time in the city waiting for repairs to the sister ship the Speedwell to be completed.

You will taste typically Tudor foods and drinks in buildings that date from before 1600.
