‘In the Footsteps of The Mayflower’. Spend a day in Southampton – on land and sea – exploring the maritime city’s connections with The Mayflower. 2020 marked the 400th anniversary of The Mayflower and her sister ship The Speedwell departing Southampton on a voyage to the New World. Visit SeaCity Museum and it’s permanent ‘Gateway to the World’ Gallery, and see how Southampton has developed as a port since Roman times. Learn about the famous ships that have sailed out of Southampton, including The Mayflower, The Titanic and the Queen Mary; take a guided walk with a Southampton Guide through the city’s Old Town, visiting Vaults and Towers and hearing about the city’s connections with The Pilgrim Fathers, before boarding the SS Shieldhall for a cruise along Southampton Water. The Shieldhall is the country’s oldest passenger-cargo steamship. Your cruise will pass down Southampton Water towards Calshot and the Isle of Wight, retracing the initial route of The Mayflower and The Speedwell some 400 years ago. You are welcome to visit the Engine Room and Boiler Room on Shieldhall and also meet the Captain on the Bridge!.

Most groups commence with a visit to SeaCity Museum, followed by the Guided Tour of Southampton’s Titanic Quarter and then the Shieldhall cruise. However, though these can be followed in any order, but can be dictated by the timing of the Shieldhall cruise.

Refreshments: Available at extra cost at SeaCity Museum or on SS Shieldhall

Guided tour of Southampton’s Old Town lasts approx. 1 1/2 hours (included in price).

SeaCity Museum is open from 10am daily.
