Setting sail from Stockholm

The buzzing city of Stockholm is the capital of Sweden. Visitors are captivated by the busy waterfront, the beautiful cobbled streets in the Gamla Stan, or Old Town, the museums, palaces, gardens and galleries, whilst a mere 20 minutes away, Stockholm's archipelago of 30,000 islands offers its own delights, not least some serene tranquillity. The city itself features trend-setting restaurants, a vibrant nightlife and a rich cultural heritage. Many interesting excursions from the city centre ensure that a prolonged stay will be both stimulating and varied.

Arriving in Harwich

Harwich is one of the Haven ports, situated near the confluence of the Stour and Orwell rivers on the Essex coastline. There is plenty of history packed into the compact old town - Harwich is where the Pilgrim Fathers built the Mayflower, and was once home to an important Royal Navy dockyard - though these days it is showing the same signs of wear and tear as many other faded English seaside towns. However, you're within easy reach of a number of interesting places, including the picturesque villages of Dedham and Flatford.

Don't miss

The area straddling the border between north Essex and south Suffolk is known as Constable Country, for this is where the artist John Constable painted many his most famous works. Don’t miss pretty Dedham and Flatford Mill.
