Southampton Cruise Ship Transfers from London Direct or via Stonehenge

We offer two services to Southampton cruise ships with hotel pickups in Central London and Heathrow Airport.

The direct service offers a direct shuttle in a luxury vehicle with a maximum 8 people and 4 pick ups per vehicle. 
The half day tour transfer operates via Stonehenge both with pickups from over 200 Central London Hotels plus the main Heathrow airport hotels. If yours is not one of them, it will surely be very close to one that is.

The services operate on the morning of departure of each cruise - you will be at check-in at the cruise terminal on both services early afternoon.


You'll be driven in an air conditioned comfort to your Southampton Cruise Terminal. If you have your luggage labelled with cruise ship tags the porters at Southampton will normally take your luggage straight off the bus onto the ship allowing you to walk straight into check-in with hand luggage.


The tour transfer operating via Stonehenge leaves earlier than the direct service and gives you plenty of time to view this world famous monument and be aboard your cruise ship in the early part of the afternoon. Entrance tickets into Stonehenge are included.


Cruise Ships Supported in 2017

This service is available on all dates when Royal Caribbean, Oceania, NCL, Celebrity, Princess & Azamara Quest cruise ships are visiting Southampton between the end of April and beginning of November.

If you are sailing on any other cruise line you can also join the service and will be dropped off at whichever cruise terminal at Southampton your cruise ship is docked at.


Guaranteed Departures

Please note this is a guaranteed cruise transfer, and will operate on all of the dates listed on the booking page (link below). There are no minimum numbers required for this service to operate. You have a full luggage allowance of two large cases plus hand luggage.

 

London to Southampton Direct Service

London Cruise Shuttle Bus Q&A Forum

Pick ups in Central London will begin at 09:45am. To make the booking process easier we have listed over 200 hotels for you to select from when you book, however we will collect from all city centre hotels (zone 1, and selected zone 2 hotels, essentially covering all the main hotel districts in London.)

If in doubt use our Q&A facility - link below.


If your hotel is at Heathrow airport, pick ups will begin at 10:30, covering all Heathrow hotels. Again if your hotel is not on our list, just follow the instructions on the service detail page where you make reservations from.

We do not collect from Heathrow airport passenger terminals as our vehicles are not allowed to park at the terminals to make casual pickups.

The Sofitel Heathrow Hotel and the Hilton Terminal 4 are linked to Terminal 5 and 4 respectively. If you are using Terminals 2 or 3 you will need to take a hotel bus called the Heathrow Hoppa, details on the service detail page where you make reservations from.


In normal circumstances you will arrive at Southampton by 13:00.

At Southampton you will be dropped off at your cruise terminal and walk straight to the check-in desk. Porters will take care of your luggage, ensuring it is delivered to your cabin.

Make sure you use the luggage label in your cruise pack to facilitate this.

 

London to Southampton via Stonehenge Service

Collection From Your Central London Hotel

List Of Hotels For London Coach Pickups
List Of Hotels For Heathrow Airport Coach Pickups

To avoid extended time taken to pickup all passengers in London, several vehicles collect from hotels feeding into the main bus ensuring we complete the pick ups as quickly and efficiently as possible. You therefore may be collected by the main coach, or one of our smaller vehicles to transfer you to the coach.


We do not pick up from every hotel in London, just from a long list of around 200 of the most popular. Nearly every popular chain hotel in Central London is on this list, (see link).

On the list the full address is stated plus the nearest Underground Station.

Relax in the hotel reception with your luggage ready to board when the shuttle arrives.


Collection From Your Heathrow Hotel

There are over 30 mainstream hotels around Heathrow that call themselves Heathrow hotels. The bus picks up from the majority of the hotels along the main airport hotel strips but doesn't service a few of the remote hotels quite a long way from the airport.

Stonehenge

Luggage Policy

The luggage allowance is 2 large cases per passenger (maximum 23kgs per case) plus 2 pieces of hand luggage (max 10kg per case). If you have more than this you must contact our office prior to travel.

We do not carry outsize items (eg bicycles) and you MUST inform us in advance if you have a wheelchair, mobility vehicle etc.


We are very interested in your anticipated luggage not from a perspective of hitting you with supplemental excess luggage charges but from the perspective of avoiding not having enough capacity in the luggage hold.

The cap on the number of passengers we book on a bus is driven by a simple equation assuming each passenger will be bringing no more than two large cases.


Booking Conditions and Payment

In order that we can guarantee your booking, you will need to make payment in full at time of reservation.

All cruise transfer/tours are booked are not subject to cancellation charges up to 42 days (6 weeks) prior to the the transfer/tour travel date.


If you are travelling with friends but have separate reservations please advise us to avoid the chance you may be allocated separate vehicles.

For Groups Of 8 or More - Cheaper to Charter your own Private Bus & Driver

Around six passengers is about the break even point when it becomes more economic to charter your own private vehicle instead of using the cruise bus service.

For larger groups the savings become quite substantial. For groups of more than 35, luggage is going to be the major factor that determines whether you need more than one bus.


By chartering your own vehicle you also have the bonus of a direct point to point transfer with a departure time of your choosing. Travel time is quite erratic due to possible road congestion in and around London but plan on a minimum of 2 hours.
