CRUISES AROUND BRITAIN

From ancient history to exceptional dining, explore the majesty on offer closer to home on a sensational cruise of the British Isles.

For those in search of enthralling history, vibrant culture and splendid scenery galore, why look further than the British Isles? While it may often be overlooked for exotic adventures further afield, there is an abundance of spectacular sights and experiences to be had throughout this heritage-rich region. From dynamic cities and pretty coastal towns to rolling countryside and dramatic cliffs, a cruise of the British Isles will impress even the most intrepid travellers.  

Our British Isles cruises offer the chance to explore some of the most beautiful and fascinating destinations scattered across the region. The remote Scottish isles remain a firm favourite, with nature lovers and keen photographers particularly well catered for. Whether it be wildlife spotting in the ruggedly beautiful Shetlands, taking in the mystical volcanic formations of Dutchman’s Cap, or discovering the UNESCO-listed Neolithic monuments of Orkney, there are natural wonders aplenty. 

A cruise of the British Isles also allows for greater exploration of Ireland's wealth of scenic and cultural gems. From the UNESCO-listed Giant’s Causeway to the history of the Troubles and the Titanic in spirited Belfast, there is plenty to see and do. A journey through England's stunning south coast, meanwhile, provides a relaxing getaway with a plethora of picture-perfect sights. Take in the beguiling scenery of the Isles of Scilly from the comfort of the ship, pay a visit to the Eden Project and the 16th-century Pendennis Castle near Falmouth, and enjoy a tour of England's oldest gin distillery in Plymouth. For astounding scenery and a diverse range of experiences, our British Isles cruises are the perfect getaway.
