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.
Places / attractions included in the experience are Bargates, The Pig in the Walls,The Dancing Man Brewery, and God’s House Tower
Yomp and Chomp Walking and eating tours
Led by your guide dressed in Tudor garb, you will see the Pilgrim Fathers’ Monument that commemorates their departure from Southampton to America on 15 August 1620 on board the Mayflower.
You will taste typically Tudor beer in the oldest pub in the city, and eat locally-produced pork in a 14th century warehouse.
Within the walls of the old city, you can also try the bread and cheeses made from ancient recipes.
