Ports

Den Helder is a beautiful town in the Netherlands, situated at the very tip of the North Holland province. Visit the Marinemuseum to learn more about the country's marine traditions, take a walk in the botanical gardens Oranjerie De Groene Parel Den Helder or admire sealife in the Fort Kijkduin Museum and Aquarium.

Greenwich is a district of southeast London, notable for its role in Maritime history. Opulent buildings dot the shorelines of the Thames River, and the famous Cutty Sark clipper is on display here. Greenwich has a village feel, and its parks and riverside pubs make for a rewarding stroll around the area, while the rest of London is within easy reach by underground. Visit the National Maritime Museum, the Imperial War museum, or go window-shopping in Greenwich’s affluent shopping streets.
