Netherlands & England: Mayflower Heritage Trail

Sept. 16 - 27, 2020 • Tour Code: MMT20

 

Are you a Mayflower Descendant? This tour is designed for you and your family and friends! You are invited to join other “cousins” on a Mayflower-themed tour of England, on the 400th anniversary of the historic voyage, an event of global significance. The Mayflower Pilgrim’s principles of individual liberty and freedom first took root in the UK, were nurtured in the Netherlands and then flowered in America. Their values have since guided all modern democracies.

On the tour you’ll gain an understanding of the Pilgrim’s lives before they sailed, by visiting the homes where they lived, the churches they worshiped in, the ancient Sherwood Forest where they walked, and the jail in Boston where they were imprisoned. You will also see the ports of Southampton, Dartmouth and also Plymouth, their final departure point. Other highlights include Stratford-upon-Avon, Windsor Castle, Lincoln Castle and Cathedral, and lunch in the Mayflower Pub in London – a favorite for the crew of the Mayflower.

The same tour is available Aug. 27 - Sept. 7, 2020.
