In the historic Barbican district, part-cobbled streets are lined with Tudor and Jacobean buildings, galleries, restaurants and funky bars. The Pilgrim Fathers' Mayflower set sail to found America from here in 1620. The Mayflower Steps mark the approximate embarcation point; track down the passenger list on the side of Island House nearby. Other famous departures are also commemorated at the steps, including Captain James Cook's 1768 voyage of discovery, and the first emigrant ships to Australia and New Zealand.
