England

Doris Visits places in England apart from London which has its own section. In these places Doris also tries to find the unusual for extra interest and a little edge, as well as the obvious favourites you must see.

Portsmouth has the attraction of being the home of the British Royal Navy. About 75% of the UK's fleet is based here including the UK's new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth. As a historic shipyard you might wish to afford time to see the Mary Rose Museum, the historic HMS Warrior and HMS Victory because if you were abroad you...

Alternative Cruise Parking is one we have used and been very pleased with. They and others are just out of Southampton and they will coach you to the ship without problem. We have always had excellent service. Although now we have discovered the coach from Victoria, which we took while making this film as a cruiser's guide, we have never...

When you finish your transit flight, your bags go to the ship. You are not normally immigrated to the country, especially in Barbados etc when going to the Caribbean. You are taken on a bonded coach, like bonded cargo to inside the shipping terminal, so still not in the country. There you queue to be immigrated onto the ship, your...

Doris Visits considers two different Golf Weekends in the UK Although Doris Visits is predominantly a cruise travel channel, we find fellow adventurous and like minded golfers and skiers when cruising. Not in the golf nets on the top deck but normally at the 19th hole! So we have added a couple of UK fun weekend golf retreats. TUDOR LODGE -...

Coming out top of the Christmas experiences we visited and filmed last year was the Kew Gardens lights experience. It is a light show, a lit walk through the park, a fun fair and a Christmas Market. Entrance is via Victoria Gate, the one two blocks from Kew Gardens Tube Station and yes you have to pay, which is...

If you are visiting London, whether as a someone who lives here, or a tourist, the old buildings and the history of London is a wonder. The great fire of London purged the plague, and reduced the wooden capitol demanding it was rebuilt. St Pauls Cathedral was one such building. Nel Gwynne live in those times and went from...

Val on our Oceana chat site told us about a proposed new cruise terminal for Liverpool so we got right to it. Liverpool is one of our favourite cities, we have filmed there many times from the Ch4 show GBH to an Australian film, The Leaving of Liverpool. Looks like we might be back shooting a Doris Visits film if...

Dover is a cruise port where the Fred Olsen ship Boudicca often bases and ships from the Aida fleet to the Pacific Princess often stop. It is famous for the White Cliffs. Made more famous as it was the first sign of home for pilots flying back in WWII. The planes referred to as Blue Birds by Dame Vera...

If you are on an overnight stop in London, where do you eat for a real treat. London - critics number 1 restaurant, Restaurant Story - Many critics say this is London's premiere restaurant, so we went to see what the fuss was about. 'Story' only seats 40 covers, you need a reservation, it will cost the national debt of...

King Edward VII pretended to play golf at the Royal Cromer Golf Club, so I found myself there researching Lillie Langtry and then doing a film on Cromer then finding Churchill hated it and then links to the war. Cromer has both royal and wartime history though no cruise port. One of the nearest deep ports is Felixstowe which,...
