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!

    Hi Bob, I am considering the day tour of the Cotswolds on August 11, but already have plans to stay in Oxford the night before. Must I take a train to London early Tuesday morning in order to be picked up and be part of the tour? Is there another way to join the tour?

  • Sue

    We will be in London in August and would like to take a tour to Canterbury and Dover, but would really like to tour the Dover Castle. I notice that the tour you offer goes to Leed’s Castle last and am wondering if we could sign up for the tour, but leave the tour group in Dover so we could tour the castle and provide our own transportation back to London?

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

      I would suggest you simply take the train to Dover from St Pancras Station then walk or tai/bus up to the castle.
      You can come back to London on the train via Canterbury.

      Just don’t go on a Sunday when Canterbury Cathedral is closed most of the day to te public

    Hi Bob, we will be staying at BEST WESTERN Maitrise Hotel Maida Vale, 53 – 59 Kilburn High Road and we’re going to join day tour to Bath and Stonehenge. Where would be the best pick up point? Thank you very much.

      I would suggest getting the tube from Kilburn Park Station to Paddington.
      The Hilton Paddington Hotel is a pick-up hotel at the front of the railway station

    Hi Bob, We are at the holiday inn express in limehouse area. What would be the best pick up point to join your Stonehenge, windor, bath…. tour? Thanks.

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

      The closest pick-up hotel is the Grange Tower Bridge on Prescott St, close to Tower Hill/Gateway DLR Station, 2 stops down the line.

    Hi Bob. We are staying at the Travelodge Vauxhall. We are interested in the Windsor ,Bath and Stonehenge day tour? Where would be the nearest pickup for us ??

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

      You can walk to Victoria Coach Station in about 15 minutes from the Travelodge.
      Victoria Coach Station is the main departure point of the tour coach

      Or you can walk to the Holiday Inn Express Victoria in Pimlico in about 10 minutes and the hotel pick-up service will pick you up there and take you to Victoria

    Hi, Bob. We are interested in the Bath Stonehenge tour. We are staying at the Ibis Budget London City Airport on North Woolwich Road, Silvertown, London. Where would be the nearest pickup for us?

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

      The nearest is the Grange Tower Bridge on Pepys Street – from City Airport get the DLR to Tower Hill then a short walk or you can switch to the Underground and go to Victoria where the main tour bus leaves about 45 minutes after the hotel pick-up bus serving Tower Hill from Victoria Coach Station behind the rail/underground station

    Hi Bob , interested in bath stonheng day tour . We stay in Milton Keynes , any where close by you can pick us ? Or we can come to Victoria coach station and join.. Pls advice. Thanks in advance

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

      Milton Keynes is a long way from London.
      You’d have to get the train into London, then the Underground to Victoria and join the coach at the main departure point at Victoria Coach Station

    Hi Bob – looking to book a Stonehenge/Bath day tour. We’re staying in Staybridge Vauxhall. Where would my nearest pick up point be?

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

      The closest hotel pick-up point is the Holiday Inn Express Victoria on the other side of the river beyond Pimlico Underground Station about a 15 minute walk.

      Personally I would just make for Victoria Coach Station where the main tour bus departs from later another 5-10 minutes walk beyond the Holiday Inn Express or 2 stops on the tube from Vauxhall to Victoria then a 5 minute walk to the coach station (signed)

  • Jan Kelly

    • laurelee roark

      Great Great, I know where that is.
      So for the morning tour only what time do I need to meet you? And other than reserving a space and paying for tour…do I need to do anything else?
      Like bring a lunch, buy a ticket to something…etc.
      I’m wanting to go sept 3rd.
      Thanks, laurelee

        The Stonehenge only tour is basically a coach service with admission to Stonehenge – you get an audio tour device with admission to Stonehenge

        Anything else like food is not included so you can either bring your own or use the cafe at Stonehenge
