Located in North West of Europe, the British Isles consists of Great Britain, Ireland, the Isles of Man, the Hebrides (an archipelago in Scotland, and six other thousand smaller isles. Have you ever travelled around in one single cruise trip? If you have never travelled around the cluster, then you must try this at least once in your life. And there’s no better, more fun way to do so than to tour around the isles on a cruise, where the view of the Atlantic Ocean is always a turn of the head away. Below are five breathtaking hotspots you can look forward to when you book your trip with us.

1. Plymouth, England

Plymouth is where your seafaring journey will start. Located in Devon, this port city is best known for its maritime heritage and lifestyle. If you want to spend some time exploring Plymouth, be sure to arrive days before your cruise departure date. When here, be sure to visit the historically cobbled Barbican district where the best bars and restaurants are. And don’t forget to visit Sutton Harbour for the famous Plymouth Fisheries fish market and the National Marine Aquarium where sharks and rays are comfortably tanked for the public view.

2. Scilly Isles, England

The next seafaring destination on your itinerary will be Tresco, the second biggest island of Scilly Isles. Here, you can visit Bronze Age burial sites, 17th-century castle ruins, and the Valhalla Museum, where prized items retrieved from shipwrecks past are displayed. But its history of warfare is not the only reason why Tresco is riveting; there is also its plant life to be amazed by. Be sure to check out the Tresco Abbey Garden where you can spot, and photograph, unique subtropical plants.

3. Shetland Islands, Scotland

Formally known as Zetland, Shetland is located in Scotland’s Northern Isles region, between Great Britain, the Faroe Islands, and Norway. Considered one of our itinerary’s most popular stops, this archipelago hosts a great bunch of hotspots to visit. You can start your exploration at the highly acclaimed Broch of Mousa, where the finest preservation of the British Isles’s Iron Age fortifications can be found. There’s also the Shetland Museum for a visual lesson on Shetland’s heritage and culture. For those of you not so big on museums, you can immerse yourselves in the knowledge of the archipelago’s diverse plant and marine life. Don’t forget to end your time here with some puffin birds-watching and wildflower admiration on Fair Isle.

4. Llandudno, Wales

What is a cruise around the British Isles without a stop in the coastal Welsh town, Llandudno, for some one-on-one with Mother Nature? Here, you can join a tour of Snowdonia National Park, where some of Britain’s wildest terrains and dramatic mountainscapes are bound. There are also pristine waterfalls, crystal clear lakes, and bushy meadows to be found amidst the town’s local woodlands. Before leaving Wales, you will be steered to a short yet delightful stop at the neighbouring town of Betws-y-Coed located in the Gwydyr Forest. The location is so scenic and attention-commanding, you might actually forget to take photos, so remember to set reminders on your phones!

5. Orkney, Scotland

After arriving in Kirkwall, you will be guided to tour Mainland, the largest stretch of the Orkney Islands, to explore ancient Neolithic remains. Check out the UNESCO-recognised 5000-year-old village called Skara Brae, as well as the ancient Ring of Bodgar; both sites make up the greater Heart of Neolithic Orkney. Also, don’t miss Saint Magnus Cathedral, which was built by the Vikings in the 12th century.
