An MSC Cruise to Harwich, England and a visit ‘Constable Country’
Harwich is an attractive town in Essex, in south-east England. Located on the estuaries of the Stour and Orwell rivers, Harwich was historically one of the only places that could provide mariners with safe anchorage between the Thames and Humber, and this led to a long period of maritime significance, both civil and military.
The town is a gateway to many charming vacation destinations in the south of England. It is close to Colchester (the oldest British town on record), the quaint holiday resort of Clacton-on-Sea, and lovely Saffron Walden: quintessentially English, this is one of the finest examples of a medieval market town.
One of the best ways to make the most of your cruise vacation is to use MSC Cruise Lines’ shore excursion packages; these provide informative itineraries for local attractions, as well as great deals on key sights. Why not leave the ship and come ashore to explore some of the UK's premier destinations such as London and Cambridge, both within easy reach of Harwich? For an alternate take on the region, art lovers and those seeking picture-perfect holiday memories will be keen to explore ‘Constable Country’, the countryside around Harwich that inspired the landscapes of one of Britain’s greatest painters, John Constable.
