British Isles

The British Isles are the holiday gem right inside our doorstep, but what do we really know about it?

Isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides

Well, we know it's frequently got grey skies and rainy days. Even the Romans, guarding Hadrian's Wall, were wont to whinge about the weather and write home for extra socks.

But that's also the wonderful thing about Britain, its rolling, mist-shrouded, legend-ladled history, a green and pleasant landscape of castles, palaces, great houses, haunted groves, old ruins and cosmopolitan chic.

Most cruises round the UK will take in a few non-UK ports of call first, such as St. Peter Port or Le Havre. Then it'll be Westward Ho to Milford Haven in Wales, Cobh and Dublin in Eire, Belfast in Northern Ireland and Liverpool before taking a cruise around the coast of Scotland, via Greenock for Glasgow, through the Outer Hebrides to the Highland port of Inver Gordon before calling to the cultural hub of Edinburgh.

There's more to see in Britain than anyone can easily do in a lifetime, and a British Isles Cruise is a fantastic way to start discovering it.

We can't guarantee the weather of course, but then you're British, you understand.

Stiff upper lip, and all that.
