Welcome To Britain

A very warm welcome to Britain – a nation full of contrasts with a wide variety of landscapes and diverse cultures just waiting to be explored.

Our island nation has a wealth of attractions and experiences to offer your guests and our ports have the facilities to ensure a seamless experience.

We’re a small island with a huge offering: World-class destinations, cultural landmarks, fascinating heritage, cosmopolitan cities and spectacular countryside are just on the doorstep and within easy reach of most of our ports.

Whilst England, Wales and Scotland are all unique countries with their own customs, cultures and tradition, our excellent geographical location within Northern Europe also gives plenty of scope for scheduling calls to other countries nearby such as our near European neighbours, Ireland, Iceland, Norwegian Fjords and Baltic.

2015 has been another exciting year for the UK cruise industry with visits by many of the world’s newest and most contemporary ships ever to sail in British waters.

With a new record number of 922,000 of day calls in 2014 and figures soon available for 2015, we are looking forward to the growth trend continuing for British ports, evidencing that the UK cruise offer is stronger than ever and our potential is at its greatest right now.

Within our website, you’ll find essential itinerary planning information, a wealth of things to do a attraction ideas and the key contacts for each of our members, all within clicking distance.

We are really looking forward to welcoming you, your ships, your passengers and your crew to everything that Britain has to offer. Enjoy!
