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!

    Hello Bob, we are looking to take the Small Group Day Tour to Stonehenge, Windsor & Bath From London Aug 21 and are staying at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel London – Victoria, which is the nearest pick up point and how do we get there? Thank you.

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

      Personally I would opt for the pick-up at the Cumberland Hotel, Marble Arch which is next door to the Underground Station
      There are many direct bus routes from Victoria to Marble Arch or you can take the Underground changing at Oxford Circus

      The tour finishes at Victoria Railway Station

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

      The Novotel London West pick-up is just the other side of Hammersmith Underground/Bus Station from your accommodation

      • Hartono Taslim

        Great, then I can make the booking and the pick up point will be outside Novotel London West, am I right?

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

          Yes, when you go through the reservation on-line just pick the Novotel London West from the list offered
          The bus only turns up at the hotel if somebody has booked a tour and stipulated the hotel as a pick-up point that day

          • Hartono Taslim

            Thanks Bob for your prompt reply. Will book for saturday 23 April 2016.

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

            Ask the concierge / reception at hotel where the Premium Tours coach will be picking up that morning and let them know you are waiting as well as waiting where they direct you

    Hi we are going to Windsor, Stonehenge & Bath Day Tour on 22nd of April. Where would be the nearest pick up point? Thanks – R

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

      It depends on which Windsor, Stonehenge and Bath tour you are interested in.

      • Robertas

        The one without lunch, and with Roman bath tickets. :)

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

          The closest pick-up would be the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge at 7:30 but more practical would be to join the tour at the main start point at Victoria Coach Station.at 8 a.m.

          The number 2 bus will take you to Victoria Railway Station , then its a 500 yard walk (signed) to the coach station

          The tour ends at Victoria Railway Station

    Hi there, I am planning on booking the Stonehenge, Windsor, Bath tour from London. I am staying at 51A Burnt Ash Road, London and want to do this on Wednesday, March 30th. Where would be the nearest place to go for pickup?

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

      Probably best to join the tour at the main departure point at Victoria Coach Station

      Using your Oyster Card
      – Get the train from Lee to Victoria changing at Lewisham
      – Walk to Victoria Coach Station (signed from within Victoria Railway Station)

      Journey is going to take about an hour on leaving Lee

      Tour ends at Victoria Railway Station

    Thank you

  • Amanda

    For the Cotswolds In Depth day tour, where would I be best going for pick up – I will be departing from Ashford in Surrey and will arrive at Waterloo station.

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

      The Park Plaza County Hall is 5 minutes walk from Waterloo Station
      Its very straight forward, check the route on Google Maps or similar
