The Mayflower pub stands on the site of the The Shippe pub that dates back to around 1550. It is close to where the Mayflower ship was fitted out for the long transatlantic voyage. The pub was rebuilt as the Spread Eagle and Crown in 1780 and renamed as the Mayflower in 1957. It was the nearby landing steps to this pub that the Pilgrim Fathers set sail aboard the Mayflower Ship. The voyage took 66 days. The pub is located in Rotherhithe on the River Thames.
