Harwich International Port is well placed on the East Coast of England, just under 70 miles from London. The A120 and A12 trunk roads ensure easy access and fast journey times from all London airports, with the added benefit of a railway station inside the port.

The dedicated and friendly cruise team takes great pride in the purpose-built cruise terminal building with modern gangway and strives to provide a first class service to passengers and cruise lines alike.

The Port has established itself as a major UK cruise port for turnaround calls and now serves a number of markets, including North Cape, Baltic, Scandinavia, around Britain and the Mediterranean. In conjunction with the Haven Cruise project, the Port is seeking to attract more port-of-call business, and to promote the many overlooked local tourist attractions including Cambridge, Colchester, “Constable Country”, and Duxford Imperial War Museum, which will continue to delight visitors in future years.

Harwich itself is a quaint and historic seafaring town with several well-renovated buildings and interesting museums as well as a good range of friendly bars and restaurants.
