The Mayflower was a pilgrim ship headed for America in 1620. This is a memorial to remember this event of the pilgrims fathers that sailed to America. The memorial is a fairly good looking monument.

It's a tall column, next to the busy road but it is what it symbolises that matters! It was not far from here at the Westgate where the Mayflower and Speedwell left the UK for the Americas. Anyone interested in history or if you are...More

I wouldn't have made a special visit to see this memorial but I respect it in many ways. It had a warm feeling towards it and the people from the past.

This memorial is important to the people of Southampton and to the ancestors of those who sailed on the Mayflower. Originally the Pilgrim Fathers were to sail from the area now known as Mayflower Park, but they had to call in to Plymouth for repairs,...More

Yes, there is a Mayflower Park and across the street, a memorial, but that is kind of pushed to the side and can go unnoticed. Worth a trip. Some nice trees and benches there to take a break in the shade. The park though could...More

So, this is the real picture of the Mayflower Memorial. It is located far south in front of the canal, close to the doc and the Mayflower Park.
