Description

The Mayflower Steps are a monument built in the twentieth century to commemorate the location from which the Pilgrims are believed to have departed England for North America. Though the passengers had no link with Plymouth, they were forced to seek shelter here after experiencing bad weather in the English Channel. The memorial, built on a small pier dating back to the nineteenth century, is a portico with Doric columns. It is built close to the actual site of the Mayflowers departure. Historians believe the actual site is now occupied by the Admiral MacBride, a Victorian public house.
