The attention of passengers is directed to the facilities provided by the Cunard Line to enable their patrons to reach London, Paris, Berlin and Vienna, in the shortest possible time, by traveling via Fishguard on the South Wales Coast. This route is recognized as the most expeditious for all travelers crossing the Atlantic from the United States to any European points.

The ‘‘Aquitania", '’Lusitania” and “Mauretania" proceed direct to Fishguard and Liverpool without stopping at Queenstown. All other Eastbound New York steamers call at Queenstown, Fishguard and Liverpool.

The Great Western Railway provides special trains from Fishguard to London (Paddington) also when sufficient offers to Dover (for the Continent) and to Birkenhead (for Liverpool).

The railway journey between Fishguard and London occupies about 4 ¾ hours, and between Fishguard and Dover 6 ¾ hours.

When passengers travel during the night, sleeping cars will be provided when required from Calais to Paris.

FISHGUARD is the nearest British Port to New York and Boston and this Route is therefore, the most direct to London.


A BELL WILL BE RUNG FIVE MINUTES BEFORE the Tender Is ready to receive passengers. The passengers will, therefore, find it more comfortable and convenient not to wait about in the companionways and entrances.

Special Trains Between Liverpool and London

The London and North Western Railway Co. run Special Express Passenger Trains from Riverside Station, Liverpool to London (Euston) In connections with Cunard Steamers.  Enquire at the Purser’s Office.
