Kick off your cruising adventure at Harwich, an Essex port conveniently located near Colchester, Ipswich and London. Harwich is approximately 90 miles from the centre of London.
The port is the smallest of the three primary cruise ports that service the London area, the others being Southampton and Dover. During the peak summer season, cruises from Harwich leave just every other day, so it’s an excellent option if you prefer a less busy terminal.
By air: Harwich port is just over an hour’s drive from London Stansted, its nearest airport, and approximately two hours from London Heathrow and London Gatwick.
By train: There are regular rail services from London Liverpool Street Station to Harwich port, taking approximately 90 minutes.
By car: The port is just under a mile from the A120. If travelling during peak hours, be sure to allow extra time to reach your cruise.
If you’re taking a cruise from Harwich, rest assured the port offers a 300-seat pre-boarding lounge, a 24-hour tourist information point, baby-changing room and disabled toilets. If somehow in all the excitement you skipped breakfast, or perhaps need to calm a few first-time cruising nerves, there’s Quayside Café serving up food and alcoholic beverages. The port also offers a Royal Mail Post Box just in case you’d like to send off a cheeky postcard to incite holiday envy amongst friends and family.
