Harwich Cruise Terminal England – What To Expect Video Clip

Author: Bob Handford
Harwich is about 90 miles from London
It is mostly used for cruises to the Baltic, Scandinavia and Russia saving sailing time from the main cruise ports that serve London, Southampton and Dover.
The cruise terminal is next to the Harwich Car Ferry terminal which is much busier and has much more in the way of facilities.

Given the distance to London, up to two hours by vehicle to a Central London hotel the train link is very convenient.
Harwich International Station, is adjacent to both ferry and cruise terminal and there are hourly trains to London\’s Liverpool Street Station.
There is no alternative bus service.
Harwich Town is further up the coast and has a separate train station.

The video clip below tells you what to expect if passing through Harwich Cruise Terminal.

    considering taking the train from Harwich cruise area to London, staying in gainsborough hotel what connection will I need to take , I believe I have to get of Kensington south station

      The cruise train from Harwich terminates at London’s Liverpool Street Station which is about 5 miles from South Kensington on the other side of Central London.

      You could use the London Underground to South Kensington from Liverpool Street if you are not too heavy on luggage, the Circle Line provides a direct link.
      A cab from the station rank will be about 20 – 23 GBP region.

      The cruise bus service from Harwich has a drop at the Ampersand Hotel opposite the Gainsborough

    We would like to get to London St. Pancras station to catch the chunnel. Where must we change trains and are those changes difficult with large luggage?

    • Bob

      Trains between Harwich and London terminate at Liverpool Street Station, the Paris trains leave from St Pancras Station.
      A black taxi would take about 15 minutes and cost about 13-15 GBP

      If you are traveling with 1 large case and a handbag/shoulder bag each the London Underground should be OK, but you may have to stand depending on time travelling.
      Personally I would not travel with any more luggage than that on the Underground, but there is nothing really stopping you if saving money is paramount.

      The cruise bus service will take you direct between your cruise ship at St Pancras Station
