      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Overall it is well worth a look and will develop your knowledge of just how important Plymouth is.

      Situated on the Barbican in Plymouth, the Mayflower Steps are both historical and interesting. They are stooped with historical background that will intrigue you, and make you feel really interested in Plymouth as a whole.

      What are the Mayflower Steps?

      Well, the Mayflower Steps are really famous, and a landmark in Plymouth. They are the very steps which the Pilgrim Fathers left England from in 1620. The "Mayflower" has originally set sail from Southampton, however, due to bad weather conditions it had to come into Plymouth Harbour, and that is where the name of the steps come from. This stop over in Plymouth marked an important time for the Pilgrim Fathers, as they had to carry out important essential work before they set out on their journey across the Atlantic Ocean to North America. Plymouth sees alot of visitors from America that are particularly excited about visiting here, and this is why they are so interested. From the Mayflower Steps, visitors can go on ferry trips around Plymouth Sound at a small price, this is particulaly popular in the summer when the weather is better. Around the Steps, various plagues commerate the Pilgrim Fathers, explaining the epic journey that the Fathers had to face.

      Overall - the Mayflower Steps are just a tiny part of Plymouth's history - but a very important one. It is free to visit the steps, so it is worth taking the time to visit and read the inspiring stories on the plaques, it really is interesting how big this journey was, because this of course was before the wide spread use of travel.
