Unlock the history and heritage of our islands
This exciting cruise is perfect to discover some of Britain’s most beautiful landscapes, some of her more remote islands, the Netherlands’ iconic capital and a charming corner of France. You might choose to explore ancient sites, visit world-renowned gardens, or simply soak up the atmosphere where you step ashore in peaceful villages, bustling cities, and delightfully quaint, old towns.
Your first port of call is cosmipolitan Amsterdam, capital of the Netherlands - the land of tulips, cheese, clogs and windmills. Then, after a leisurely day at sea, you awake to find yourself north of the border. From Kirkwall, Orkney’s capital, you might wish to visit the famous Churchill Barriers, the beautifully preserved Neolithic village of Skara Brae, or the prehistoric Ring of Brodgar. Next stop is Stornoway on the largest island in the wild and unspoiled Outer Hebrides. The stunning landscape is home to an amazing array of wildlife and the pre-historic Callanish Stones.
Tobermory’s picture-postcard, brightly painted waterfront is a charming introduction to the ‘Capital of Mull’. Wander through this picturesque town, or venture further and discover this most romantic of islands. You may wish to visit the tiny Isle of Iona, the cradle of Scottish Christianity. Discover the peace and tranquillity of the Isles of Scilly with a chance to visit the famous Tresco Abbey Gardens. Cobbled streets and an attractive marina, St. Peter Port is one of Europe’s prettiest harbour towns and gateway to beautiful Guernsey. Finally enjoy Honfleur and the option to visit fashionable Deauville, or Monet’s delightful garden and home at Giverny.
