The Basics

With so many cruises starting and ending in Southampton, pre-cruise and post-cruise shore excursions to London—75 miles (121 kilometers) northeast—are a popular choice, stopping at attractions, such as Windsor Castle, Salisbury, or Stonehenge, along the way. Private transfers between London Heathrow Airport or Central London, and the Port of Southampton take around two hours.

Alternatively, the center of Southampton has a few attractions, including the remains of its medieval city wall, and a large selection of shops and shopping malls.

Excellent Tour
Our guide, Robb, is one of the best guides we've ever experienced. The tour was everything we hoped it would be. Highly recommended.

Southampton Excursion: Pre-Cruise Tour from London to Southampton via Stonehenge
We were booked to take a cruise out of South Hampton. We booked this excursion to see Stonehenge on the way. What an amazing experience. The bus picked us up right in time. The bus was comfortable and had plenty of room. Our tour guide provided us with many great stories. We had a bathroom break halfway there which helped refresh and rejuvenate. Stonehenge was amazing, a must see, if possible. Our driver maneuvered the bus like a pro. I would definitely recommend!!

Southampton: Post-Cruise Tour to London via Salisbury, Stonehenge and Windsor
A great tour, a must see, no guide just a recorder which was a pain due to the weather. Long walk for those who have a hard time w mobility, not enough time at sites.

Southampton Cruise Terminals To London Private Sedan Arrival Transfer
My husband and I routinely use Viator's private sedan transfer from cruise terminals to hotels, and hotels to airline terminals. Our last experience was from England's Southampton to the Sofitel St. James London Hotel and subsequently from the hotel to the airline terminal. On both occasions our drivers arrived early, and safely and professionally transported us to our destinations. Viator's private sedan transfer really is the very best way to travel.

Southampton Excursion: Pre-Cruise Tour from London to Southampton via Stonehenge
Our guide and driver (Voichek and Martin) were wonderful and made the trip to the port very enjoyable. It was a great way to get to see a world landmark and get to the ship from our central London hotel.

Southampton: Post-Cruise Tour to London via Salisbury, Stonehenge and Windsor
This tour provided so much more than the ship's tour. Valentina was so enthusiastic and such a sweet girl. We loved all 3 sites and it was nice to be driven directly to the door of our hotel, which turned out to not be exactly where I thought it was. Great day!

How to Get to Southampton from the Port of Southampton

Southampton has four cruise terminals—Mayflower, City, Queen Elizabeth II (QE2), and Ocean—all located around 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) from Southampton Central Railway Station and Southampton coach station, and around 5 miles (8 kilometers) from Southampton Airport. Despite being within walking distance, the motorways and busy dockyards mean that it is best to take a taxi. Taxi ranks are located outside each terminal.
