About Mayflower College
Mayflower College is located just a few metres from the seafront in the historic city of Plymouth. With over 25 years experience of providing English courses and testing, the college philosophy is based on the belief that after students visit Mayflower, they will go home and recommend this college to their friends, families and colleagues.
Plymouth is a city of history, beauty and pleasure combining the old with the new. In 1620 the Pilgrim Fathers chose Plymouth as the starting point of their historic voyage to Massachusetts, North America in a ship called "The Mayflower". Now, Plymouth is a modern city of 275,000 people offering a wide range of shops, pubs, restaurants, theatres, sports facilities, etc. The surrounding countryside of Dartmoor and Cornwall is some of the most spectacular and naturally beautiful in Britain.
