The south of England is home to no fewer than seven cruise ports, all of which are ideally located and many of which are suitably sized to accommodate the world’s largest vessels.
This is particularly relevant with regards to the city of Southampton, which regularly attracts vessels from lines including Cunard, P&O Cruises and Royal Caribbean. Southampton and the neighbouring city of Portsmouth offer gateways to the world and are both easily accessible from London. Also easily accessible from London are the east coast ports of London Tilbury and Harwich – both of which have sufficient rail links, with the latter being directly accessible via a train station located in the cruise terminal.
Dover is home to one of the UK’s most iconic sights, the White Cliffs. A cruise out of this Kent coastal town enabling you to fully appreciate them as you sail in or out of the port. Dover is also situated at the closest point between the UK and France, with just over 20 miles of water separating the two countries.
Southwest England is not left out when it comes to cruise terminals either, with Bristol easily accessible from Wales, the Midlands, and Southern England. Falmouth, the UK’s most southerly located port, provides an ideal gateway from which to travel to Western France and Northern Spain.
