A London Mayflower Walk. Pilgrims, Profit and Propaganda: the birthplace of America

For many Americans, US history begins with the Mayflower, which carried the Mayflower Pilgrims to America 400 years ago.

But for Londoners, it goes back much further. The landing at Plymouth in 1620 was the culmination of decades of exploration, dedication and investment.

During this two-hour walk, with your qualified London guide, you’ll follow in the footsteps of the founders of America.

Visit London’s medieval seat of government, ancient churches where colonists worshipped, a 17th-century hall where a Pilgrim leader was apprenticed and the sites of grim prisons where Edward Winslow and other Pilgrims languished.

Visit haunts of the Native American princess, Pocahontas, and the swashbuckling Captain John Smith.

Your walk ends at the famous Mayflower pub, close to where the ship set sail. See the burial place of Captain Christopher Jones, and sample a pint of the Mayflower’s special Scurvy Ale.
