Rather interesting Rotherhithe facts
Did you know that the Mayflower Pub in Rotherhithe (possibly rebuilt using some timber from The Mayflower) is the only pub in Britain licenced to sell both British and American postage stamps? It was from just outside the pub, then called The Shippe, that The Mayflower left London in 1620 – stopping off in Plymouth to collect more passengers and supplies (which included goods from a bakery in Plymouth still operating today!).
