A phenomenal anniversary is approaching as England marks the 400
years since the “Mayflower” ship set sail for the new land of America.
On-board, were the “separatists”, a breakaway group from the
established Church who risked religious persecution if caught. Relive the
drama as the “Pilgrim Fathers” made their way from our local villages,
where the seeds of thought were sown in secret, to the shipbuilding
south. These tours touch on areas not usually promoted within coach touring programmes with village visits in Nottinghamshire & Lincolnshire where the roots of the moment are found. Explore Boston and Harwich and a totally different side of London on the river banks of Rotherhithe.
