Find The Best Place To Join Your Sightseeing Day Tour From London

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!

    I would suggest you both make for Victoria and walk to the coach station, about 500 yds from the railway/underground at Victoria
    The main tor bus departs from here about 8:15 a.m.

    Hi Bob–My husband and I would like to take the small group tour of Stonehenge, Bath, and Windsor Castle on May 29. We are staying at Rubens at the Palace. Where would our pick up point be? Thanks.

      Probably the easiest option would be to take the C1 red London bus from Grosvenor Gardens Victoria (bus stop R) about 100 yards from your hotel to Harrods Knightsbridge department store beside which is a joining point. Buses run about every 10 mins

      The tour ends at Victoria Rail Station by your hotel

    Hi Bob, we want to do a tour on christmas day, the Stonehenge, Windsor & Bath Day Tour With Lunch At Lacock, and are staying at the Imperial Hotel in Russell Square. Thankyou!

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

      In the UK everything is closed on Xmas Day and places like Stonehenge are shut 26th Dec and possible 24th December as well

      As a result none of the usual tours run on Xmas Days

      Come September/October special Xmas tours are launched and there will probably be a Windsor, Stonehenge and Bath tour but as everything is closed in the UK that day including shops, restaurants etc and public transport it will be a very different tour with a big emphasis on a big Xmas Lunch probably in a pub somewhere in the countryside, not necesarily Lacock

    Hi bob
    Arriving Heathrow airport on 24th April at 6:40am. Interested in Windsor, stonhenge & bath tour. Just wondering if we can make the tour on the same day & wht would be the pic up time & place near airport. Thanks

      I’m afraid none of the tour companies pickup at or near Heathrow Airport.
      By the time you get into London to a departure point the coaches will have long departed

    We are staying in Islington a few blocks from the Archway Tube stop. We hope to catch the Stonehenge, Glastonbury, Avebury tour on a Friday. Which stop and how long will it take us to get to it?

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

      Probably best option is to take the Northern Line to Tottenham Court Road.and then walk te about 500 yards to the British Museum, the first pick-up of the day.

    The easiest pick-up would be the one at Knightsbridge next to the tube station with direct trains to Heathrow about every 5 minutes.
    I suspect the real issue will be how you get to the nearest Underground Station which will vary enormously depending on your Heathrow Hotel

      Thanks, Bob. I will be staying at the Radisson Blu Edwardian at 140 Bath Road, Hayes.

        Ok just walk over to the other side of the Bath Road from your hotel where there is a red London bus stop.
        Take any bus signed going to Heathrow Central. This journey is free and you shouldn’t have to wait more than 3-4 minutes. Journey is only 5 minutes
        The bus terminates at the bus station where escalators lead down to the Underground Station
