Author: Bob Handford

Need Help Finding The Best Boarding Point For Your Day Tour?

OK – the day tours we are talking about here are the full day tours both within London and outside London to places like Stonehenge and Windsor.

London Tour Hotels

Hotel Pick-Up List

All of the main operators day tours have left their main London departure point by 8:30 a.m. Because of the early start the “big bus” tours offer a long list of hotel pick-up points starting as early as 7 a.m.
The pick-up points, all hotels are located in all the major hotel districts of Central London, well over a 100 hotels. They then take you to Victoria Coach Station where the main tour departs from.
The exception are the small group tours with a maximum of 16 passengers just have a handful of pick-up points at strategic points across Central London. But if your hotel is not on the list or you are staying outside London where is the best place to join a tour?

Stumped? – Well just ask Bob at the discussion facility below saying which tour you are going on and where you are staying!

    We are staying at the Club Quarters in Trafalgar Square. Tomorrow Monday August 18th we are on the Leeds Castle, Dover, and Canterbury Day tour. Where and what time should we pick up the tour?

      You don’t say which Leeds Castle tour you are on, but the pick-up location should be on your confirmation.
      If not the contact details of the tour company you have booked with will be on the confirmation.

      For which tour?

      • Anne

        Stonehenge and Bath.

        • http://www.londontoolkit.com/ Bob

          The St Giles Hotel is just around the corner and you will find listed as a possible pick-up hotel when you make a reservation

    The closet pick-up is the Hilton Hyde Park next to Queensway Underground Station.
    Info I have is 7:15 a.m. but the pick-up coach only drops by if someone has reserved a departure from that hotel.
    You need to contact Premium as per your confirmation requesting an amendment to your booking and confirmation of pick-up

    Alternatively you can just get a bus or underground from Notting Hill to Victoria then walk to Victoria Coach Station where the main tour bus departs about 8:15 a.m.

      The Sidney Hotel Victoria at 76 Belgrave Road is a pick-up hotel you can select when booking and is a couple of doors down from your hotel at 7:45.
      Alternatively you can walk to Victoria Coach Station in 10 minutes where the tour buses depart from and be there around 8 a.m.
      The vehicles that pick-up at the hotels just shuttle you to Victoria Coach Station where you switch to your tour bus for the day.

    If you want to pay in cash you’ll need to travel into Central London and buy from a vistor centre including the one at Kings Cross Station.
    The Stonehenge and Bath tour will be more expensive this way, the 45 GBP price is an on-line only price.
