Historic UK & French Ports

Spend a week relaxing aboard sleek Magellan as she sails from Liverpool to Normandy, via Ireland and Guernsey, to join the meandering Seine to Rouen.

Call first at historic Belfast, with its glittering Titanic Quarter development, before starting your journey south, to Guernsey, where you’ll visit St Peter’s Port. From here, make the short journey across the Chanel to the Seine, and follow it south to ‘Joan of Arc city’ Rouen, with its beautifully restored medieval centre and iconic Gothic cathedral. A call at pretty Honfleur, former favourite of the French Impressionists, completes this wonderful week at sea.
