Dartmouth's stunning river port
Follow in the footsteps of the intrepid Mayflower Pilgrims, and their final weeks in England. We'll discover the beautiful river Port of Dartmouth where the Mayflower laid at anchor while the Speedwell had repairs and, subject to availability, and have a tour of the town with Les and Liz Ellis, the Town Crier and Consort, dressed in their full, magnificent regalia, to add some authentic flavour to the experience!
We stop for lunch in a traditional pub before exploring Plymouth, one of the world’s most historic maritime cities and significantly, where the Mayflower finally left on its famous voyage.
We’ll visit the historic Barbican area and see the Mayflower Steps and Museum and also Island House where many of the Pilgrims lodged while in the town.
We continue our exploration of Plymouth with a visit to The Blackfriars Distillery and home of Plymouth Gin. The refectory is said to be the room where the Pilgrims had their final supper before departure. We may take an optional guided tour of the Plymouth Gin Distillery. Next stop is to stand on Plymouth Hoe, looking out on one of the world’s finest natural harbours.
Here you are standing on history itself, the scene of some of the world’s most iconic voyages, including of course, the sailing of the Mayflower.
