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, me & my wife would like to take the day tour to Stonehenge, Bath, Stratford on Avon (& Cotswolds) on Tuesday 27 Oct 2015.
    We will be staying at the Z Hotel Piccadilly, Orange Street.
    Would appreciate your advice on the nearest hotel pickup and timing.
    Thank you.

      That part of London is not well served for hotel pick-up points for tours because of access problems for the large coaches
      Nearest hotel pick-up would probably be the Ritz Hotel next to Green Park Underground, about 10-15 minutes walk away

      Personally I’d be inclined to get the number 11 bus from in front of Charing Cross Station by Trafalgar Square that will take you to Victoria Coach Station where the main tour bus departs from

      Closest pick-up hotel is the Marriott Maida Vale by Kilburn High Road Station about a mile away. There are many buses from the bus stop in front of the hotel including the number 16 bus that travel between

    Hi Bob, we would like to go on a day tour on 18th October 2015, either Bath/Stonehenge or Windsor/Bath/Stonehenge day tour. Our flight arriving Heathrow International Airport Terminal 5 at 5.05 in the morning. We are not sure whether we will be able to join the tour from Victoria Coach Station and is it possible to bring along our luggages? Please advise.

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

      The coaches are full size coaches so there is room for lugage

      It normally takes 45-75 minutes to get through customs and collect your luggage at Heathrow, allow another 90 minutes or more to get the Underground to Victoria Coach Station

      The tours end at Victoria railway/underground station normally with a stop at Gloucester Road Kensington Underground before that

    Hi Bob we would like to go on the Bath/Stongehenge day tour on January 2nd 2016. We are staying at The Bermondsey Square Hotel. Where would we be able to be picked up from please? Cheers

      I would be inclined to join the tour at the main departure point at Victoria Coach Station.

      Your accommodation is a little way outside the main hotel districts, the nearest hotel pick-up hotel is the DoubleTree Hilton Tower of London on the other side of the river behind Tower Hill Underground Station – about a 15 minute walk
      The DoubleTree is also one of the first pick-ups about an hour earlier than the time the tour bus departs Victoria from
