The Union Castle Line

The Union Castle Line was a cargo and passenger shipping line dedicated to serving African Ports. Her main route was between Southampton and South Africa. Union Castle liners with their distinctive lilac hull and red funnel operated a round Africa voyage stopping at such points as Tanga and Aden - which the normal traveler might not otherwise have visited. Sea travel was a leisurely affair with plenty of time in port for sightseeing and shopping.
