The North of England offers a glimpse into maritime history and modern culture. Liverpool, on the west coast, draws upon a maritime history that extends back over 170 years and the city has welcomed ships of all descriptions over the course of this time. Today, it is one of the most accessible cruise terminals in the UK, providing instant access to and from the city centre.
Contrastingly, Hull, on the east coast of England, depart from one of the UK’s newest cruise terminals. The Yorkshire city will play host to a range of events throughout 2017 to coincide with the city’s status as UK city of culture.
Further north is the Northumberland city of Newcastle upon Tyne, which sits on the east coast and is England’s northernmost cruising gateway.
