Mayflower 400 Launches Self-Guided Tours App

The Mayflower 400 programme has been created as we approach 2020, the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower from Plymouth UK to Plymouth Massachusetts.

The organisation plans to commemorate the legacy of the passengers and crew who undertook the journey and to highlight their stories and heritage which is embedded in communities across the UK, the US and the Netherlands. A world-class series of events, public art and wider content will bring together the 11 core destinations in England with wider local, national and international partners and over 20 million US citizens descended from the Mayflower.

Mayflower 400 UK has launched a Self-Guided Tours free app which provides users with easy to follow self-guided tours of the UK towns, cities and villages connected to the Mayflower.

App users can enjoy guided walks and driving tours of each of the villages, towns and cities connected to the Mayflower, which include Plymouth, Southampton, Rotherhithe, Dartmouth (Devon), Harwich (Essex), Boston (Lincolnshire), Scooby & Babworth (Nottinghamshire), Austerfield and Doncaster, Immingham (North East Lincolnshire), Gainsborough (Lincolnshire), Worcestershire and Leiden (Holland).

The app makes use of GPS to notify users of nearby places of interest, allowing visitors to follow in the footsteps of the Mayflower Pilgrims and explore all the stops on the Mayflower trail at their own pace, learning about the history of the Pilgrims journey through England and Holland and their final voyage on the Mayflower.
