Jane SeymourEmmy award-winning actress Jane Seymour, OBE, shares her favourite destinations


My favourite cities are London, where I grew up; New York, probably one of the most exciting cities in the world; and Venice, one of the most romantic.

I have never been to Australia, New Zealand or Fiji but would love to visit that part of the world. Friends have told me extraordinary stories about the diverse scenery and adventures that can be found there.

This year I plan to return to and explore the British Virgin Islands. I will also be on tour with a play in the Far East soon, which is another place I love.

Last summer I did a Transatlantic crossing on Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 to England followed by a smaller cruise around the Greek islands. I love Europe in the summer; swimming in the clear, blue Mediterranean and Aegean seas. And I also went to the British Virgin Islands to visit Richard Branson’s Necker Island, which was a fantastic experience.

The best thing about cruising is you never have to worry about transport to different destinations. Your home away from home changes scenery for you and it’s exciting to explore all the different ports of call you arrive in.

The Cotswolds and the city of Bath hold a very special place in my heart. We enjoyed 26 years of holidays at my previous home, St Catherine’s Court, a Grade I listed manor house near Bath in England. Throughout the years friends and family would gather for candlelit dinners around our Elizabethan tables and go for hikes in the countryside.
