Here are the details

To commemorate the 400 year anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower to America on its historic journey, Leiden in Holland where the pilgrims started their famous voyage will be launching its commemorations on Saturday 16 May.

A unique virtual tour of the city, incorporating all the key landmarks and stories around the Pilgrims life in Leiden, will start at 4 pm (3 pm UK and 10 am –Eastern time in America). Over the next four hours, viewers will have the chance to experience this beautiful city using computer-animated reproductions to bring to life existing buildings and landmarks as they would have looked four hundred years ago when the separatists lived in the Netherlands prior to leaving for a new life.

The guided tour will be hosted by an English speaking expert from the city and will be accompanied by the chance to ask questions during the event around the different historical landmarks you see during the event.
