Private transfers Southampton to/from London and airports

Best private transfer option for couples, families and groups by car, van and charter bus


Private Cars Southampton -  London

Journey between Southampton and London

Southampton cruise terminals are about 80 miles (128km) from Central London, and two hours in a vehicle.

 

Heathrow Airport is the nearest major airport to Southampton, about 65 miles (105km) and 90 minutes by private vehicle.

 

Gatwick Airport is a further 40 minutes from Heathrow Airport around London's orbital motorway.


Monday to Friday mornings on transfers to London from Southampton you will normally be subject to road congestion which will add time. In the opposite direction towards Southampton, traffic can be very slow on sunny summer Saturdays when the weather is fine and half of London makes for the beaches.


There are four Southampton Cruise Terminals spread along a couple of miles of the waterfront and there is fifth temporary terminal used if five ships want to dock the same day. There is only one cruise ship docked at each cruise terminal at any one time. Cruise lines are not tied to any particular cruise terminal.


Cruise ships typically with very few exceptions dock early around 5am to 6.30am with assisted disembarkation started by 7am. Many ships offer unassisted disembarkation 15-20 minutes prior. Most cruise ships at Southampton have disembarked by 9am.


At airports and cruise terminals the price includes meet and greet, the classic reception formula of our drivers being there with your name on a board as you exit customs/luggage.

At hotels we will come to the reception area to find you at the time you have stipulated at the time of reservation.

Prices & Luggage Capacities Of Private Minibus Transfers To/From Southampton Cruise Ships

Full size touring coaches for large groups

Cruise Shuttle Bus From London

If you have a large group then that is not a problem either.

The largest coaches are 50 to 72-seat coaches but we also have access to vehicles half that size.


With large groups on cruises the capacity issue is not normally passenger numbers but luggage.

UK coaches are built to European traveller requirements, where one large case is perfectly adequate. A typical 50-seat coach will be able to accommodate around 60 large cases in the luggage hold.

For a group travelling with North American flight allowances a 50-seat coach will typically only be able to accommodate the luggage of 35 such passengers maximum.


With large groups just as small groups multi-drop and pick-ups from hotels is routine and if you require sightseeing we can arrange a guide whether it be an orientation tour of London or a niche interest of the group.
