Cruises from Bristol

Cruises from Bristol

Situated by the mouth of River Avon, Bristol Cruise Terminal has long been the maritime doorway of the South West. The port of Bristol is the UK’s most centrally located deep-sea port, and the main cruise terminal (Avonmouth Dock) is just six miles from Bristol city centre, while the new Bristol Portbury Cruise Terminal lies across the river mouth, eight miles outside the city. The port for cruises from Bristol has excellent transport links, with motorway and rail links directly at the port.

We offer cruises from Bristol on board Magellan (which depart from Bristol Portbury Cruise Terminal) and on board Marco Polo (departing from Avonmouth).

The port’s location, just seven miles of the M4 interchange and with its own dedicated junction on the M5, makes it easily accessible for millions of people across the country.

By car: The terminal has fast, easy access from the M4 and M5 Motorways.
