Each summer, a series of luxury liners visit London, and while the city doesn’t have a formal cruise liner port, there are three suitable mooring points where the liners can berth for a few days.

As the ones heading into the center of town pass my flat, I tend to keep an eye on the calendar for visits. The list below gives the known dates for visits this summer based on data from the Port of London Authority. Military ships don’t give more than a few days notice – at best – so they are not listed until I am able to confirm a visit.

The cruise liners passing up to Tower Bridge will be moored next to HMS Belfast – and I’ll usually note the times on the events calendar as there are photo opportunities as the liners pass through the raised Tower Bridge.
