“History”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

Fascinating to hear the history of the steps, although there is a little bit of sadness mixed in with the story, but like all things it does have a happy ending.

“No one knows where they embarked from.”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

We know that these steps and this pier did not exist at the time of the Mayflower. Local history has it the they may have used steps now incorporated in the basement of what is now the Admiral McBride pub. All there is now are some commemorative tokens.

“Great history, small plaques!”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

This is supposedly the place where the pilgrim fathers set off from the Engish soil to start life in the brave new world. Worth a visit for that history alone. It's a landmark in Plymouth with the lovely Barbican area where you can find pubs, great shops and eateries. Could enjoy a good walk along the jetty, but could become very busy.

“Mayflower Steps - an important moment in history”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

Stand here, on the same stone steps, and remember those brave families who set sail across the Atlantic, enduring a long rough passage, praying for a better life - in New England.
