Harwich is not only home to the Mayflower, which was registered at the port, but several of the crew were residents of the town including the ship’s master and co-owner Christopher Jones – whose house still stands in Kings Head Street. This house is now open to the public and highlights the story of the Mayflower and Harwich.
