The Scottish Highlands, featured on many British Isles cruises

British Isles cruises

Our own fair isles are often forgotten as a cruising destination, but they can offer an excellent alternative to a city break if you wish to visit the towns and cities of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. From seeing cities such as London, Edinburgh and Dublin, to the UK's wonderful wildlife and natural beauty, being a cruise tourist in your own country can be a genuinely enlightening experience.

Our insight

Cruising around Britain

Don't be tempted to dismiss the idea of a British Isles cruise before taking the time to study the itinerary. You will find calls at remote and virtually inaccessible locations, gateways to stunning scenery and amazing historical sites, and some wonderful full day calls at cities and towns you have long wished to explore.

You will be enthralled by the rich heritage of your homeland, not to mention the amazing wildlife. Look out for the opportunity to visit special events - for example you might be in Edinburgh for the Festival, or to see the Tattoo.

British Isles cruises operate at the height of British summer time, which, as we all know, means the weather can be changeable, but often beautiful. You will enjoy some excellent bonus benefits too: inexpensive travel insurance, and convenient UK departures with no airport queues and an unlimited luggage allowance.
