Private tour transfers between Southampton and London via Stonehenge or Windsor

Both Stonehenge and Windsor Castle are world class attractions that are only a small detour when travelling between London, its airports and the cruise terminals or hotels at Southampton.

Hiring your own vehicle provides freedom and flexibility. You can work to your own schedule and tailor a route, transforming your transfer into a sightseeing excursion. Luggage is safely stored in your vehicle throughout the journey with your driver taking care of it, alleviating any concerns about carrying it or where to leave it.

The Logistics



It’s around a 75-minute drive from Heathrow Airport to Stonehenge, and around 2 hours from Gatwick Airport or a Central London hotel. The onward journey from Stonehenge to Southampton cruise terminals or hotels are just under an hour.

Stonehenge has variable opening times but during the busy cruising season the gates open at 9am. This allows plenty of time to visit ahead of checking in for your cruise. In the Southampton to Stonehenge direction you do not want to depart Southampton before 8:15 am


Windsor Castle
Windsor Castle

Windsor opens at 9.45am, from Heathrow it is a very easy journey of about 20 minutes. From central London and Gatwick, it is closer to an hour. The journey on to Southampton from Windsor should take between 75-90 minutes but do be mindful of busy summer traffic.

In the opposite direction from Southampton if you are disembarking Monday to Friday you will be travelling during the morning commute and traffic congestion delays are routine.

Changing of the guard at Windsor starts at 11am on the days it is performed.

Tickets for Stonehenge or Windsor Castle


At Stonehenge you cannot pay on the day any more without a high risk of hours of long waiting times or being barred entry.

During the summer months if you do not book tickets in advance the waiting times involved makes a stopover unworkable. The visitor centre and car park is over a mile from Stonehenge itself, out of view over the horizon. You can purchase tickets on-line in advance at the official Stonehenge web site, link below. You have to state a 30 minute window when you want to gain entry, though experience is that Stonehenge take a flexible attitude if you are delayed.

At Stonehenge an audio guide is available after entering.

We can cater for all groups sizes from single travellers to large groups. Each tour is unique and customised to the times you want to tour and your interests. You can opt for a friendly knowledgeable driver or a professional driver-guide.

Indicative travel times between attractions touring from Southampton


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?

There is much to experience in Windsor beyond the castle, you can easily spend a weekend here. Windsor Castle is in the middle of town with shopping, restaurants galore, river trips and much more.
