The Pilgrim Fathers, 1590 - 1630


The story of the Pilgrim Fathers: Who were they, where did they come from, and what happened to them after they sailed from Southampton? This illustrated talk brings to life the extraordinary characters, who risked everything to create a perfect society. They survived against all odds, and established a colony, but the community they hoped for never materialised. Jake has been a Blue Badge Tourist Guide since 1992, with a particular interest in Southampton’s links with the United States.

The talk will be delivered by Jake Simpkin, Blue Badge Tourist Guide.
