England Cruises

In the midst of the British Isles lies the small but historically significant nation of England. As part of the United Kingdom, the bordering countries of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are easily accessible. But this relatively little country packs a hefty punch on its own merits, with a mix of globally renowned cities such as London and Manchester, and some of the most glorious countryside you’ll find anywhere.

Away from the bustle of the big cities with their high street shopping and swanky restaurants, there’s an array of idyllic landscapes in England. From the Peak District to the Great Lakes and over to the Yorkshire Dales, there’s much to see and do, while the shores of Brighton beach and Bridlington Bay provide the classic British beach life experience complete with Ferris wheels and ice cream.

Highlights

Entertainment

From Southampton to Liverpool, Newcastle and beyond, England cruises bring visitors into incredible ports with easy access to cosmopolitan cities. There’s no shortage of entertainment and first-class dining but there are a few unique features making each port city stand out.

Liverpool was home to the Beatles and has a vibrant music scene complete with many a tribute to the band, while Southampton was the departure point of the Titanic. Every city here has its iconic view – Newcastle for instance is home to the magnificent Angel of the North sculpture. 

English wonders

Aside from access to fabulous shops and historical monuments, some English ports also allow visitors to glide past some of the UK’s prettiest natural wonders. The white cliffs of Dover mark arrival into southern England while the less famous but no less stunning white cliffs of Flamborough Head greet passengers heading to the north of the country. 

 

Food

 xx

Britain has many dishes intrinsic to the English culture that are now popular worldwide. However, they never taste as good as when they’re made in England itself, as those aboard a cruise to England will discover. 

Fish and chips is a staple Friday night dish for many Brits and most towns will have a ‘chippy’ where visitors can buy their fish wrapped in paper and munch it down with a wooden fork.

Sunday lunch is also a hearty meal any visitor should try. Tasty roast meat, a few vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and gravy make for a delicious meal found in most cosy pubs. 

Afternoon tea is a true British pastime, only complete with scones, clotted cream and jam, and cucumber sandwiches. Tearooms across the UK offer the traditionally three-tiered dining delight, all with their own twist on the teas and cakes included.

Sticks of rock on a Scarborough beach and a Cornish pasty from a nearby bakery are also top English treats to try.
