Excursions benefit from expert local guides who showcase the best, and most accessible, things to do in each port.

When you consider what you get for your money, a cruise often works out to be a real steal.

A holiday with Cunard is a voyage shaped over 180 years.

Whether it’s enjoying a sumptuous Afternoon Tea, a spectacular Gala ball, or a West End-calibre show, your experience with Cunard will be nothing short of incredible. There’s no better way to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 than with a Cunard voyage around the British Isles. Cities of Culture The British Isles’ 12,500km of rugged coastline opens up into a land of vibrant cities, from Edinburgh to Belfast, Liverpool and more, with each offering its own distinct culture, landmarks and history. UNESCO World Heritage Sites, impressive castles and plenty of local flavour will define your city adventures across the isles. You might find yourself wandering around Edinburgh’s bustling Old and New Towns, or visiting Liverpool’s iconic waterfront, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to ‘The Cunard’ building which was the cruise line’s headquarters from 1914 to 1969 and spiritual home to this day. Rural Beauty Home to otherworldly landscapes that range from dramatic cliffs to sprawling green hills and moody lochs, there’s nothing quite like a tour of the British Isles’ natural beauty. You can take in plenty of this as you sail through fairytale scenes in the Isle of Skye, Northern Ireland’s Causeway Coast and more. You’ll find that the landscape changes with the weather as you sail onwards,

meaning that each port of call is a photo opportunity in its own right.

Legendary Landmarks Though not vast, the UK and Ireland are teeming with iconic landmarks highlighting fascinating histories - it’s not hard to come across a building or area of great significance! Find yourself dwarfed by the imposing, prehistoric markings of Stonehenge, follow in the footsteps of giants at The Giant’s Causeway, or stop off at the famous Cavern Club in Liverpool where The Beatles were first discovered.
