Meet Sheila, a host in Southwark who takes us to her favourite local spot

Sheila has spent the past three years hosting on Airbnb, welcoming guests from across the world to her listing in Canada Water, Southwark. Sheila recently sat down to speak to us about one of her favourite local recommendations in her borough, The Mayflower Pub.

The Mayflower Pub in Rotherhithe Village is rich in history. An important marker you’ll quickly discover is that it’s where the Pilgrim Fathers departed from as they set off for the New World in 1620. The original mooring point of the Mayflower ship is still visible from the pub.

Watch to see what else Sheila had to say about why The Mayflower Pub is such a local gem:
