Our Southampton city map below clearly marks the docks with four separate cruise terminals, city centre hotels, transport hubs and local places of interest. It also provides the relative distances between these places.

The city of Southampton is around two hours from London and is a major cruise destination on the south coast of England. With its fair-share of hotels and strong transport links, Southampton provides a good base for local sightseeing. This includes Stonehenge and the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury amongst others, as our tourist map below illustrates.
