VisitBritain estimates that the UK will receive approximately 4m visitors from the United States in 2020 - we cannot identify if they will be here specifically for the Mayflower commemorations. Disney Cruises, with whom VisitBritain have a partnership, will also stop at Plymouth on the way from Southampton, Hampshire to Boston, Massachusetts. This is estimated to draw an additional 13,500 visitors for the event.
