Central London and Heathrow to Southampton via Stonehenge - 1 day
Morning Transfer To Southampton Cruise Terminals
Door To Door Cruise Transfer With 1 Hour At Stonehenge
Exclusive tour transfer in a luxury touring coach
A half day tour transfer with pickups from central London and Heathrow hotels. This service is available on all dates when Royal Caribbean, Cunard, Oceania, Celebrity and Princess cruise ships are visiting Southampton.
You'll be driven in an air conditioned touring bus to your Southampton Cruise Terminal via a short stop (one hour) at world famous Stonehenge. Simply disembark from the coach at Southampton and walk into check-in. The porters will take your luggage and the next time you see it will be inside your cabin. We plan to drop you at your cruise terminal between 12:30 and 13:00, just in time for lunch.
Collection From Your Central London or Heathrow Hotel
The coach will collect from the Central London hotels between 06.50am and 08.00am, covering all hotels as per the link below. There are over 150 hotels covered offering customers a comprehensive choice of pick up locations. All central London pick ups are usually complete by 08:00am/08:15am. We will then collect people staying at the Heathrow hotels listed below, pick up will usually begin 09:00am/09:15am. We do not collect from passenger terminals. Please note this pick up service is operated for International Friends by our coach partners Premium Executive Coaches. Many of our coaches do have bathrooms, but if not the driver will be happy to arrange a 15/20 minute comfort stop en route to Stonehenge if required.
We spend around one hour at Stonehenge, enough time to explore this world famous monument from 4000-5,000 years ago, and still have enough time for the gift shop or a quick coffee, perhaps a rock cake!
With admission at Stonehenge (optional extra) you get a complementary audio guide in a choice of languages.
There are four cruise terminals at Southampton.
In normal circumstances the coach will take an hour or slightly less to travel from Stonehenge to Southampton arriving around 12:30.
At Southampton step off the coach and walk straight into the check-in desk. Porters take care of your luggage, all very quick and easy. Make sure you use the luggage label in your cruise pack to facilitate this!
