Discover the beauty on your doorstep with a UK cruise

With a whole world to discover, it is all too easy to forget the treasures we have right on our doorstep in the United Kingdom. Allow us to remind you with a cruise around the British Isles, shining a light on the most fascinating corners of our diverse nation.

Made up of over 6,000 islands and boasting spectacular coastlines and beautiful landscapes, the British Isles is rich in diverse cultures, customs, and traditions, making for a charming cruise destination. Our unique British Isles cruise itineraries take you to remote, far-flung islands, iconic and vibrant cities as well as charming coastal towns.

With a focus on the stunning islands around the mainland of our nation, you’ll be able to explore unique cultures and landscapes on a round Britain cruise with Ambassador.

Discover the tranquillity of Tobermory on the Scottish Isle of Mull. With rainbow-hued buildings along its peaceful harbour, an iconic whisky distillery and amazing natural landscapes, you’ll have plenty to fall in love with here. We don’t stop there with the Scottish Isles, and a highlight of many cruises is Portree on the Isle of Skye, where you will feel like you’ve entered a Tolkienesque fantasy landscape upon Skye’s surreal crags and peaks. You’ll also be able to visit Kirkwall, and stunning feature of the northern Orkney Islands, filled with historical sites and surrounded by an incredible wilderness.

Looking southwards, you’ll be able to explore the quaint capital of St. Peter Port in Guernsey, where England meets France amid a picture-postcard landscape. Quainter and more unspoilt than its near neighbour St. Helier, St. Peter Port is part Francophile fishing port, part bustling capital – and a playground for the wealthy, who know a good thing when they see it.

Then there are the hidden pleasures of St Mary’s in the Isles of Scilly, a subtropical paradise off the coast of Cornwall. Little more than six square miles, St Mary’s is the largest of the islands, with an atmosphere that is unlike anything you will experience on the mainland.

It’s not just inspiring islands we visit, with stops at incredible mainland ports on our cruises of the UK, from Belfast in Northern Ireland, with incredible culture and access to the geological marvel of Giant’s Causeway. And you can explore the historic maritime city of Portsmouth on England’s south coast, loaded with amazing attractions and a bustling atmosphere. 

Our cruises around the UK offer a fantastic opportunity to explore some of the best of both Britain and Ireland, uncovering UNESCO World Heritage sites, a wealth of cultures, incredible natural landscapes, energetic towns and cities and much more. Who knew there was so much to love on our doorstep?
