Create an itinerary including Mayflower II
See the scale replica of one of America's most famous boats at Mayflower II, built in the 1950s in Devon, England. This boat actually sailed to Plymouth to replicate the Mayflower's original voyage to the "New World" in 1620. Since then, the wooden ship has resided in the United States, offering visitors an opportunity to admire a great feat of maritime engineering. Try to imagine how 102 people fit aboard a ship of this size to make the original 10-week journey 400 years ago.

  • This was a very interesting location to explore. There were staff positioned throughout the ship answering questions and sharing information. We were shocked to learn how long they were on the boat but mostly by standing in the space they lived in. It was surprisingly small. Physically being in the space and imagining the number of people, livestock, gear and things was mind boggling. I recommend taking the time to explore this piece of American history.
  • Very cool piece of history and very knowledgeable and polite staff! Kids enjoyed touring the ship and the experience overall. It’s much smaller than we thought! No lines and it just got back from some major repairs, I think they said $13-14 million worth. Go see this piece of history! Buy tickets online ahead of time and buy the package deal for other events. It makes for a great afternoon! Then walk along the water and visit an ice cream shop for a post-tour treat!
