All Aboard Mayflower II ! Along with national treasures such as the Statue of Liberty and the Lincoln Memorial, Mayflower is an iconic symbol of freedom. Of the hundreds of ships that made the transatlantic crossing in the 1600s, she is the ship we remember. Three hundred years later, on June 13, 1957, a full-scale reproduction arrived in Plymouth Harbor, Mayflower II .
Since then, Mayflower II has become the majestic centerpiece of historic Plymouth Harbor, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In many ways, America is the product of the events that happened in Plymouth and Native Patuxet over four centuries ago—the choices made, risks taken, and the adaptation of community structures to new civic realities. Mayflower II tangibly embodies those choices and risks for hundreds of thousands of lifelong learners each year. More than twenty-five million people have stepped aboard her decks to imagine the perils and contemplate the modern impacts of the historic crossing.
Today, Mayflower II is a floating classroom and working vessel. Following her restoration and return to Plymouth in 2020, she was added to the National Register of Historic Places, illuminating that she is a historic ship in her own right.
"Like most people, I was immediately struck by how small the ship seemed - particularly in the 'tween decks, where the passengers were confined. How could 102 people, including three pregnant mothers, have survived more than ten weeks in a space this size?"—Nathaniel Philbrick, "At Sea with the Pilgrims: Writing About the Voyage of the Mayflower, " Plimoth Life, 2007.
Frequently Asked Questions
Mayflower is a square-rigged vessel that is about 25 feet wide and 106 feet long, displacing 236 tons of water. She has four masts, including a mainmast, foremast, mizzen, and sprit, with a total of six sails. You may walk around the main deck, orlop deck, and half deck.
Mayflower is not fully accessible. People with difficulty walking should be aware that there are ramps that can be steep according to the rise and fall of the tides. On the ship, there are also several flights of stairs to climb. However, those unable to board the ship may enjoy a close-up view of Mayflower from the dock, visit the dockside exhibit area, talk to modern crewmembers, and look at photographs of the interior of the ship.
Yes, we encourage you to take photographs or use video cameras for your own use. You need not ask permission of the staff to take pictures of Mayflower . Commercial use of photographs or video is prohibited without permission from our Public Relations office.
No one knows for sure what happened to the original Mayflower . The last record of the ship was an assessment of her value in 1624. After that, she disappeared from maritime records. Several places in England claim to have a piece of the original ship, but there is no historical proof to support these claims.
Mayflower passengers lived on board anywhere from seven to nine months depending on when they joined the voyage and how soon they left the ship for shelter on land.
One of the most notable differences is the large modern staircase between the main deck and the lower decks. (In the 17th century, ladders were used). Electric lights illuminating the dark corners of the lower deck were also not standard in the 1600s! There were other minor modifications made to Mayflower to make sure that she would be more accessible, safe, and comfortable for the visiting public.
Mayflower II : Her Story
A reproduction ship was always part of Harry Hornblower’s vision for Plimoth Patuxet Museums (learn more about his vision here). In 1951 Plimoth Patuxet (then known as Plimoth Plantation) contracted naval architect, William A. Baker, to research and design plans for a ship the size and type of the original Mayflower. At nearly the same time, unbeknownst to Plimoth Patuxet, a similar project was developing in England. Warwick Charlton founded Project Mayflower Ltd. to honor the alliance of friendship forged between the United States and United Kingdom during World War II. Charlton’s team came across an article written by Baker, and after connecting with Plimoth Patuxet, a new partnership was born. Plimoth Patuxet provided Baker’s research and plans to Project Mayflower Ltd. Of course, that is just the start of Mayflower II’ s journey!

Her Maiden Voyage
Mayflower II set sail from Plymouth, England on April 20, 1957 with a crew of thirty-three men under the command of acclaimed Captain Alan Villiers. As they neared Massachusetts shores, Mayflower II ran into a violent squall. No one aboard had experience with handling a 17th-century vessel in inclement weather. However, Captain Villiers remembered that William Bradford, famed Governor of Plymouth Colony and passenger aboard the original Mayflower during her 1620 voyage, wrote in his manuscript, Of Plimoth Plantation , how Master Christopher Jones steered the original ship to safety during the 1620 voyage by lying ahull. Quickly recalling this note, Villiers and the crew executed the same maneuvers and calmly rode out the storm. On June 13, 1957 Mayflower II arrived in Plymouth, Massachusetts to a crowd of 25,000 adoring spectators.

Her Triumphant Restoration
“ Mayflower II is a source of inspiration to those in search of new beginnings and the possibility of multicultural cooperation in this nation of immigrants. Upon her return to Plymouth Harbor she once again became a kind of time machine…to a past that only gains in resonance and importance with each passing day.”—Nathaniel Philbrick
After 3+ years of restoration and 3 weeks of sea trials, on August 10, 2020 Mayflower II departed a slip at Mass Maritime Academy headed for home. With great fanfare and a flotilla along the way, the ship nestled back into her berth in Plymouth Harbor later that day.
Following her return, on October 22, 2020 Mayflower II was named to the National Register of Historic Places. She was deemed historically significant for her association with the founding story of the United States and as a full-scale ship that embodies the distinctive characteristics of a 17th-century English merchant vessel. In April 2021, Mayflower II received a Paul & Niki Tsongas Award from Preservation Massachusetts in recognition of the project’s significant work in historic ship restoration, and went on to win Preservation Massachusetts’s People Choice Award the following month.

Tickets To Board Mayflower Replica In Boston Now Available
February 13, 2020 / 1:56 PM EST / CBS Boston
BOSTON (CBS) -- Tickets to board the Mayflower II, a replica of the iconic Pilgrim ship, are now available for reservation. Boarding is free as part of a six-day maritime festival in Boston in May, but tours aboard the Mayflower II are ticketed.
The Mayflower II will sail into the Charlestown Navy Yard in Boston escorted by the USS Constitution on May 14 and stay until May 19. The ship has been under restoration in Mystic, Connecticut for the past several years getting ready for the commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims' voyage to what is now Massachusetts.
"As 2020 begins, we are gearing up to celebrate the return of Mayflower II home to Massachusetts, following a three-year, multi-million-dollar restoration," said Stephen Brodeur, Mayflower Sails 2020 Chair and Founding Sponsor in a news release. "The ship is Plimoth Plantation's full-scale reproduction of the original that sailed the Pilgrims to our shores 400 years ago. This is an incredible opportunity for the public to see this iconic ship which has been a vital part of our cultural and historic landscape for over 60 years."
The Mayflower II was built in the mid-1950s in Brixham, England, and was intended as a gift to the people of the United States from the people of England following World War II, according to the release. It arrived in Plymouth in 1957 and was greeted by over 25,000 people.
Since then, more than 25 million people have stepped aboard the ship, the release said. In 2014, the ship's owner, Plimoth Plantation, committed to an extensive restoration project at Mystic Seaport Museum over three years. With the majority of the project completed, she was re-christened and launched in a ceremony in September 2019.
The festival in May will also feature music, food and drink as well as educational, cultural and historical programs. For more information and to reserve tickets, visit the Mayflower Sails 2020 website.

About the Tour
Our journey back in time begins at the Plymouth Visitor Center, where you can get acquainted with the town you’re about to explore. From there, you’ll stroll along the gorgeous waterfront and get a crash course in who the Pilgrims were, as well as how they managed to build a society so far away from anyone they knew.
The first major stop is a real treat: a replica of the Mayflower, on which the Pilgrims sailed from England to Massachusetts. Here, you’ll also get the scoop on the Mayflower passengers who weren’t Pilgrims–people who were called The Strangers.
After that, you’ll come to Plymouth’s most famous attraction: Plymouth Rock. According to legend, this is the spot where the Pilgrims disembarked to establish the colony of Plymouth. It’s got quite an exciting history behind it, all of which you’ll learn while admiring this timeless historical artifact.

What You'll See
Plymouth visitors information.
Your tour of Plymouth begins at the Plymouth Visitors Information Center. From here, you'll walk through this picturesque and historic city, learning everything there is to know about the town's long history, from the early tribe to the Plymouth Rock and beyond. As you begin your journey, you'll get acquainted with just who the Pilgrims were, exactly, and how they set about establishing laws for their new society.
The Mayflower II is an absolute Plymouth must-see. A painstakingly-constructed reproduction of the 17th-century Mayflower which carried the Pilgrims to America in 1620, this ship offers a whole new perspective on that journey. As you admire the craft, just try to imagine crossing an entire ocean in a wooden vessel like that!
Mayflower Society House
The Mayflower Society House is a beautifully preserved home once owned by the grandson of Edward Winslow, grandson of one of the original Mayflower passengers. Winslow's family helped to build Plymouth, but he threw away all that goodwill by siding with the British crown when revolution started brewing.
Hands down the most popular attraction in Plymouth, Plymouth Rock hold tremendous symbolic and historic importance. It is considered to have marked the landing site where the Pilgrims disembarked to found Plymouth in 1620. Historians debate whether the common beliefs about it are accurate, and you'll hear all about that when you visit.
Chief Massasoit Statue
This bronze statue of Chief Massasoit honors an important and unusual friendship which helped the Pilgrims survive their first winter. When the Pilgrims first arrived, Massasoit needed an ally in his struggle with the nearby Narragansett tribe. The Pilgrims, likewise, needed help finding and growing food in their new home. The result was an unlikely, and sometimes uneasy, alliance between the two.
Brewster Gardens is a park named for William Brewster, one of the original Mayflower passengers. It's also the site of the Town Brook, where the Pilgrims got their drinking water in the early days of the settlement.
Pilgrim Maiden Statue
The bronze Pilgrim Maiden statue by sculptor Henry Kitson was erected in 1922. It honors not one specific woman, but all the women who immigrated to this new land and helped to build a new life. Such statues are rare, and this is one of the only women Kitson ever sculpted.
Burial Hill Cemetery
Burial Hill Cemetery was established all the way back in the 1600s and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places for good reason. More than a few of the Mayflower's original passengers have been buried here. So have other famous historic figures, including iconic patriots from the Revolutionary period.
Richard Sparrow House Inc
The Richard Sparrow House is the oldest surviving house in all of Plymouth. It was built around 1640 and has been painstakingly preserved. Even better, you can actually go inside! The house today functions as an art gallery and pottery studio.
The Plimoth Grist Mill/Conclusion
The Plimoth Grist Mill is a reconstruction of one of Plymouth's oldest structures, and it's actually still a functioning mill! The grist mill uses water power on the weekends to grind corn, and visitors can even buy fresh-ground corn from the site itself. Your tour concludes here, though there are plenty more optional stops throughout Plymouth for those who want to keep exploring.
Pilgrim Hall Museum
The Pilgrim Hall Museum at 75 Court Street in Plymouth, Massachusetts is the oldest public museum in the United States in continuous operation, having opened in 1824.
National Monument to the Forefathers
The Mayflower Pilgrims are remembered at the National Monument to the Forefathers, originally known as the Pilgrim Monument. It was dedicated on August 1, 1889, and it commemorates their principles as they came to be accepted by the majority of Americans. Experts agree that it tops the list of the largest granite structures everywhere.
Hedge House Museum
"The Plymouth Antiquarian House is a historic house museum in Plymouth, Massachusetts owned by the Plymouth Antiquarian Society. The house was built in 1809 for William Hammatt, a New England sea captain. The Hedges, a family of entrepreneurs, purchased the house in 1830 and lived there until 1919."
The Jenney Interpretive Centre
Exhibits in the Interpretive Centre focus on the Pilgrims, stories of their faith and values, the abolitionists and slavery, the family – the cornerstone of society.
Located at 33 Sandwich Street in Plymouth, Massachusetts is the historic Jabez Howland House. It was in 1667 that Jabez Howland, whose parents John Howland and Elizabeth Tilley Howland sailed on the Mayflower, bought the original portion of this two-story wood-frame house from its builder, Jacob Mitchell.
Plymouth Long Beach
Long Beach is a barrier beach– a peninsula that serves as a barrier between the open ocean and the mainland coast.
Plimoth Patuxet Museums
Plymouth, Massachusetts is home to the Plimoth Patuxet Museum, a living history museum that has been open since 1947. In the 17th century, a group of English immigrants who would later be known as the Pilgrims established a colony in what is now known as Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Visiting Boston, Lincolnshire
Boston is a lively historic port and market town located on the River Witham, joining the North Sea at a part of England's east coast known as ‘The Wash’. Boston and its magnificent church are named after St Botolph, an Anglo Saxon monk, who according to tradition visited the area in the 7 th Century.
Boston today is a diverse and vibrant town to explore and discover, with a range of quality national and independent shops, wonderful dining experiences and a unique history and heritage. Boston’s medieval wealth can be seen from surviving buildings in the town that you can still visit today; St Botolph’s Church (known locally as ‘The Stump’), St Mary’s Guildhall and the town’s stunning Market Place are just three examples. The large weekly markets each Wednesday and Saturday and its annual May Fair, are also legacies from the medieval period and draw visitors from miles around.
Nearby are RSPB sites - Frampton Marsh and Frieston Shore where visitors can experience the sheer diversity of The Wash, enjoyed by birdwatchers, families and visitors who want to get close to the special natural environment of this part of England.
Pilgrim Memorial, Scotia Creek
Boston and the Mayflower story
One night in the autumn of 1607, a passionate and determined group of men, women and children secretly met a boat on the edge of ‘The Wash’ at Scotia Creek, Fishtoft, near Boston. They planned to defy the authority of the English church and escape across the North Sea to Holland to live in religious freedom. They had walked 60 miles from Scrooby, near Gainsborough, and were hoping for a new life.
They had arranged to travel with the captain of a ship; instead he betrayed them and the local militia seized the group and took their money, books and personal possessions. Stripped of their belongings and hope, the group were brought by boat back to Boston and held and tried at the Guildhall, home to the local law court and cells. After a month, most were sent back “from whence they came”, but seven ringleaders were ordered to the higher Assizes court of Lincoln.
Today, you can visit Boston Guildhall and see the cells where they were held. Nearby is the Pilgrim Fathers memorial marking the point at Scotia Creek from where they made their attempt to escape.
The Guildhall was recently visited by Hollywood actress Ashley Judd, a descendant of William Brewster - senior leader of the Pilgrims. She was astonished to find a tiny preserved historical cell - with a plaque commemorating the fact it had held William Brewster, her 10 times great grandfather.
Judd is a mong the 35 million Americans who can trace their ancestry back to the Mayflower, the revelation was made to Judd on an emotional episode of the popular TV show Who Do You Think You Are?
Boston's position on the edge of the North Sea and its river connection with the city of Lincoln, allowed the town to develop as an important trading centre.
In the early medieval period, only London was richer and more important than Boston as a port; Boston’s wealth was based on wool. During the time when wool was England’s main export, the town was sending three million fleeces a year abroad, making a significant profit.
As the value of wool declined, the town changed. By the 1700s, the agricultural revolution provided another economic boost. During this time, Boston supplied one third of London’s grain directly from granaries situated along the riverside. Once again, this wealth influenced the architecture of the town and many fine Georgian buildings still remain.

Boston's Mayflower programme
Supported by a £500,000 award from the Heritage Lottery Fund, partners from across Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and South Yorkshire came together to develop an exceptional programme of heritage activity commemorating the birthplace of the Separatists and the stories that inspired their journey to America. More than 100 activities were planned in the build-up to and through 2020 and 2021. Alongside the PilgrimAGE 2020 festival, highlights included:
The region’s existing self-drive Mayflower Trail was renamed the Pilgrims Trail, and received significant investment to increase its scale and content, including digital resources. The trail was enhanced by a range of activities targeting visitors and residents, providing unique experiences that engaged people with the local landscape and heritage
A new Pilgrims Gallery at Bassetlaw Museum opened in May 2019. This tells the story of the Pilgrims in North Nottinghamshire, addressing core themes of tolerance, freedom and migration while also acting as the focal point for the Pilgrims Trail
A series of high-profile exhibitions took place across the Roots region, including a new permanent installation in Gainsborough Old Hall and multiple shows across Doncaster’s Heritage Festival
Imagination Museum Mayflower 400 by Katie Green used the medium of dance to interpret the Pilgrims' story and engage young people, with performances based at non-traditional dance spaces such as museums and exhibitions
A brilliantly diverse cultural programme, with activity ranging across performance, photography, health and well-being, digital, writing, schools engagement and more. This was developed in partnership with local communities and organisations such as Bassetlaw Christian Heritage and the Percy Laws Gallery, ensuring that content was accessible, authentic and carry real resonance for visitors and residents

More than a rock and the Mayflower, downtown Plymouth aims high
Posted: November 13, 2023 | Last updated: November 13, 2023
PLYMOUTH — Inside Uva Wine Bar on Main Street, three businesswomen sat together with a purpose: make downtown Plymouth a premier destination in New England.
Katy Thayer, owner of Uva, Christine de la Torre, owner of Sprezzatura Boutique, and Deb Tanis, owner of Cork + Table Kitchen Bar, have all opened businesses here in the last five years, drawn to a growing downtown area built upon independent establishments.
“We don’t have a Starbucks down here,” Thayer said.
“We don’t want one,” Tanis added.
With Plymouth’s population growing by about 1,000 residents a year and its median household income increasing from $87,000 to more than $92,000 over the past five years, business owners, developers, and town officials are increasing their focus on the sprawling community’s historic downtown.
And that includes creating a new Plymouth Downtown Waterfront District.
The aim is to improve the experience along Main Street, including new lighting, parking lot signage, and even installing a giant blue Adirondack chair for visitors to snap pictures to share on social media.
“We all know Plymouth has the Mayflower, we all know Plymouth has a history,” Tanis said. “But it has so many other things too that people can enjoy.”
Things like distilleries, restaurants, shopping, and culture.
Many tourists come to Plymouth for the history but stay longer because they enjoy the charm, Torre said.
“It feels very like Stars Hollow from Gilmore Girls kind of vibes,” Torre said. “We’re like a cute little small-town New England feel to it. It doesn’t feel super commercialized.”
But downtown Plymouth didn’t always feel like that. For decades, the main draw was Plymouth Rock — the, frankly, underwhelming stone surrounded by large Grecian columns near the waterfront — and the replica tall ship Mayflower II.
When the Kingston Collection Mall opened just outside of town in 1989, many of downtown Plymouth’s traditional retailers — from CVS to independent gift shops and florists to the F.W. Woolworth department store — either moved to the mall or went out of business, said planning director Lee Hartman, who has been in the town since 1987.
In response, a group of business owners in 1991 came to the town and said, “We would like to do something different,” Hartman recalled.
The town did two things, Hartman said. The first was creating a new zoning district that allowed for more flexible uses downtown without obtaining special permits. The new zoning eliminated things like the minimum front yard setbacks and minimum lot sizes because most of the businesses already didn’t conform. It also allowed for more mixed-use spaces. (Dense multifamily housing or high-occupancy hotels still need a special permit, however.) The second was adding 200 properties to the downtown historic district, creating a more stringent review of what new businesses could look like through the Historic District Commission.
“I think that was really the genesis of a big change in the community,” Hartman said.
In the ‘90s, Hartman said, the vacancy rate downtown was about 60 percent. Today it is close to zero.
Downtown has changed a lot since the days when Tatum Stewart opened the Craft Beer Cellar nine years ago. There wasn’t much else on Main Street back then, but that was an opportunity.
“I knew we were too soon for Plymouth,” Stewart said. “But I also knew that we wouldn’t be able to afford Plymouth when it was ready.”
When she first pitched to the town to get her liquor license, she spoke of Plymouth becoming a food, beer, and wine destination. Now, she said, “We’re here,” and Stewart has a second business: Plimoth General Store.
The vision is to become one of the “Three P’s,” or Portsmouth, Portland, and Providence, she said.
“The tides have turned,” Stewart said. “We’ve all been rowing for a very long time, and I think the tide is finally going with us.”
Plymouth Town Manager Derek Brindisi agrees, saying a lot of investment has gone into renovating the downtown area.
The town is preparing an application for next year to reconfigure the sidewalks to make them more climate resilient, including beautifying the walkways and adding trees for shade.
He said that the town is even looking into the possibility of building a convention center to help drive tourism.
“It’s a combination of really good public policy mixed with the private sector to invest in a remarkable community,” Brindisi said.
And it’s not just new restaurants and stores.
Developer Rick Vayo of MEGRYCO began investing in Plymouth 10 years ago, creating three residential projects with close to 60 units in historic buildings in the heart of downtown. The investment paid off. The new housing he created led to an increase in foot traffic to downtown business he continues to grow out.
The company now has 100,000 square feet of commercial space in the downtown area and manages a few hundred residential units. Next up is converting a dilapidated boarding house on Chilton St. into a boutique hotel.
Vayo believes Plymouth will be on par with other renovated historic tourists and regional tourist attractions in New England, such as Portland, Newburyport, Edgartown, or Newport, R.I.
“I think Plymouth will become the No. 1 spot over the next decade.”

Opinion columnists | 4 arrested after gunshot at brighton youth halfway house, opinion columnists, subscriber only, opinion columnists | howie carr: musings on the boston-area brothel johns and other news, is fox news’ murdoch thinking nikki haley for wife #5.
With a nod to Jimmy Cannon, nobody asked me but:
When you first heard about the “high end brothel” and the secret list of johns that the feds refuse to release, what was the first name that came to your mind?
Speaking of which, when are we going to find out the name of the local billionaire that the skanky hooker from Stoughton was convicted of trying to shake down back in 2009?
Asking for a friend….
Whatever happened to local TV news?
If Rich Shertenlieb is thinking of jumping to WEEI, I have three words for him:
“Don’t do it!”
Suicide would be a better option, although you could say that working for Entercom, er, Audacy, is a form of suicide — career suicide.
Atty. Gen. Andrea J. Campbell’s middle name is “Joy.”
Which is exactly what she delivered to the legislative leadership when she pretty much nixed Auditor Diana DiZoglio’s ballot question to audit the legislature.
Now can the AG bring the rest of us some joy by finally filing criminal charges against the bust-out GOP loser hacks who have played so fast and loose with the state’s campaign-finance laws?
The way Fox News and the Murdoch newspapers gushing over Nikki Haley, it’s enough to make you wonder if Rupert is sizing her up as Wife Number 5.
Maybe that fifth trip down the aisle at age 92 will be the charm.
Mike Dukakis turned 90 last week — his state pension is $36,414 a year.

The only way the cops will ever release the client list of the “high-end” Cambridge brothel is if one of the names on it is “Trump.”
Or maybe they’ll drop the names right after the release of the client lists of the Hollywood madam, the Mayflower madam and the DC madam, not to mention Jeffrey Epstein’s flight log and the Nashville transgender shooter’s manifesto.

There’s an old saying that you should be nice to the people you meet on the way up because you’re going to meet them again on the way down.
Did Bill Belichick ever get that memo?
You know the Patsies are going bad when, for the first time in living memory, some sports-page fan boys are predicting that the team is going to lose a game.
Didn’t I read that immediately after City Councilor-elect Enrique Pepén had to quit his $120,000-a-year hack job last summer as a City Hall coat holder for Mayor Wu, his father was hired onto the city payroll to replace him?

Does anyone really care whether Gov. Maura “Hold It” Healey is in-state or on yet another fabulous junket to some sunny place for shady people?
All we ask is that she makes the trains run on time.
Whenever I see anyone driving by themselves in a car wearing a mask, two words come immediately to mind:
Every time the cops lug some Hitler Youth at MIT or Brown or UPenn rallying for genocide against Israel, I only want to know two things about them:
Their names. And their SAT scores.
Just call it my own personal zest for justice.
