Harwich Mayflower Project

Harwich Mayflower Project


George Street,
CO12 3ND


The port of Harwich is a must-see destination for history-lovers. It is the place where the Pilgrim Fathers built the Mayflower and where its captain, Christopher Jones, hailed from. Visit the yard where the Mayflower Project is underway with the building of a replica of the famous ship that sailed to America and see the work in progress. The plan is to sail to America in 2020 for the 400th anniversary. Other attractions include the Electric Palace, one of Britain’s first cinemas (which has local actor Clive Owen as its patron), and the atmospheric Redoubt Fort, which dates back to the Napoleonic Wars. Have a wander around Harwich and imagine yourself in the days of famed diarist Samuel Pepys, who was actually MP for the town.

Get an insider's story of the town with one of the summer tours organised by the Harwich Society.
