Stopover in Royal Windsor, don't kill time at the airport

Windsor Castle
Windsor Castle

Most cruise ships at Southampton are fully disembarked by around 9am, so with a transfer to Heathrow or Gatwick (London's main airports) you can expect to be in the passenger terminal by around 11am.

This works well if you have a lunch time or early afternoon departure but not if your flight is later. Hanging around an airport terminal is not a great way to end any holiday. So rather than kill time in a soulless airport passenger terminal why not make your transfer a memorable part of your trip,

So rather than killing time at an airport terminal why not spend your day exploring beautiful Windsor?
