Glenfi nnan Viaduct I loved sailing around the UK and not having Glencoe to drive. I visited places that I would never have got to. Belfast, Northern Ireland In Northern Ireland’s vibrant capital, star attractions appear wherever you look, including Titanic Belfast, while tours to the exceptional natural phenomenon that is the Giant’s Causeway are not to be missed. The city is also the starting point for uncovering Audley’s Castle and the 18th century Castle Ward Estate, both of which were used as filming locations for the epic fantasy TV series Game of Thrones. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Take a behind-the-scenes look at some of the iconic locations featured in the hit series Game of Thrones, including Audley’s Castle and the Castle Ward Estate – the setting for Winterfell – where you can attempt a spot of archery. Dublin, Ireland No visit to the ‘Fair City’ would be complete without visiting the vibrant Temple Bar district or sampling the ‘black stuff’ at the Guinness Storehouse. Fortunately many of Dublin’s highlights are close to one another. Guests can also unearth two famous locations from films of yesteryear: Trinity College – home to the iconic Book of Kells – featured in Educating Rita; while Kilmainham Gaol, a former prison, played its part in The Italian Job (1969). Falmouth, England Falmouth is home to a network of creeks and rivers, along with a sandy beachfront; the spectacular landscapes of the area were used as the setting for the iconic series Poldark. The town is also the gateway to some of England’s most resplendent attractions: the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, St. Michael’s Mount and Lizard Peninsula. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Go behind the scenes of Poldark as you take in locations associated with the hit BBC series and the books upon which they were based. Visit the Poldark Mine and Truro, the city that inspired the author. Portland, England The Isle of Portland is a thoroughly compelling destination. Clinging to the south coast of the UK via the shingle-covered Chesil Beach (part of the UNESCO-listed Jurassic Coast), you’re just a tour away from West Bay, the dramatic beach location for ITV’s Broadchurch. Portland’s harbour – the second largest man-made harbour in the world – connects to the Fleet Lagoon. Here you’ll spot the Abbotsbury Swannery, the world’s only managed colony of nesting Mute Swans. Portland is the gateway to a plethora of historic attractions too, including Salisbury Cathedral and Stonehenge. independent customer reviews UK & Ireland View destination and ship videos at www.cruisewithfred.tv 123
