In 2020 the Pilgrims' journey to America will be commemorated in close collaboration with the 'four nations' (the Netherlands, England, America and the Wampanoag Nation in Massachusetts). Many activities will be organised. See below the full programme in Leiden (this programme is under development).
This international partnership of thirteen communities led by Plymouth, Massachusetts and Plymouth, England, has worked together on the historic 400th anniversary since 2014. All partners have their own vision of the importance of this commemoration to their respective nations and the world.
The story of the Pilgrims, their journey, and the colonisation of New England, is a complex one, spanning hundreds of years. This brief summary will provide an introduction to the Mayflower narrative.
The Mayflower trail follows the journey of the Mayflower Pilgrims, the ship and their voyage through villages, towns and cities. You can follow in the footsteps of the Mayflower Pilgrims.
