Tour Transfer & Stopovers Between Southampton & London

By far the majority of cruises disembark by about 08:30 at the Southampton Cruise Terminals. So why not make your transfer to London or departure airport a tour to remember, rather than a couple of hours along the motorway.

We can supply a vehicle with driver or driver/guide to show you places like Stonehenge as well as the English Countryside, perhaps taking lunch in a typical English village pub. The vehicle can securely store your luggage and deliver you to your London hotel or airport.

Of course you can tour going in the opposite direction before you board your cruise too.

In addition to the classic tourist places, we can take you off the tourist track and show you the real England, of thatched cottages, Norman churches, country pubs and cream teas.

Along the way we'll explain the history, show you ancient places not in the guide books and tell you about the English themselves.

Its very cost effective if you can put a group together and hire a small bus, perhaps using the roll call of your cruise on Cruise Critic or similar board, but we're equally at home providing custom tours for couples or at the other extreme large groups.

Note: The quality driver/guides that we use are normally booked up solid several weeks ahead during the peak season of June to September. If you require a custom tour within this period please contact us well in advance to avoid disappointment otherwise you might be dependent on late cancellations for an offer.

Fully Guided Tour Transfers From A Few Hours To A Day

There are so many wonderful places to visit not so far off the route between Southampton and London. Combining the transfer between Southampton and London with world class sightseeing transforms a monotonous blast down the motorway/freeway into an experience you will remember all your life.

Our professional driver/guides are proud to showcase this region of England. You can choose from classic traditional sightseeing of places like Stonehenge, Salisbury or Winchester Cathedral, 'Georgian' Bath or pursue a theme where it be literary, English gardens or a pub crawl.

Our free tour planning service take great pleasure in assisting you to formulate an itinerary that fits your own individual requirements. We have a variety of guides with their own specialities and area of interest and will assign one that is right for your tour profile.

Below is a crude map of travel times between the main places of interest. You may want to put your own itinerary together and run it past us for comment.

Tours are customised for each individual group. Go where you want to go at a pace you want.

We'll get you off the tourist trail into small villages and along country lanes with some of the finest countryside and villages to be found where the tour groups do not go.
