Why choose a UK cruise?

The UK is one of the most historic nations on Earth, and you may be surprised at just how many beautiful sights there are to see – even if the weather sometimes leaves a little to be desired!

Most of our British Isles cruises involve a stay in London, where you’ll get a true taste of the British inner-city lifestyle – not to mention the chance to visit famous landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Nelson’s Column, Piccadilly and a huge choice of fantastic museums and galleries.

Then there are some of the lesser-known (but no less stunning) tourist spots, such as Falmouth, Bristol, and Stornoway. The country is simply packed with beautiful rolling countryside, rocky beaches and historic buildings.

And you’ll get the chance to visit many more areas of the world on some of our cruises, including Scandinavia, South America and the Caribbean.
