Turn your Southampton cruise transfer into a day trip and experience a world of delightful villages, hidden valleys and meandering streams throughout the Cotswold Hills, visiting Downton Abbey filming locations on the way, before we make a stop for a fabulous lunch in a 15th century inn.
This service is available on all dates when Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Oceania, NCL, Celebrity, Princess & Disney (New for 2023) cruise ships are visiting Southampton. Service also available to passengers on other ships not listed when dates and arrival times coincide with ships listed. Please note you will need to make your own way to the ship we are servicing on that date.
Nearly all cruises at Southampton arrive between 05:00am and 06:00am in the morning, with disembarkation starting around 07:00am. Your driver will meet you at the terminal building exit from 08:00am. Your driver will be holding a sign and will accompany you the car. We plan to leave Southampton by 08:30am. There are 4 cruise terminals at Southampton, all slightly different but you will have a typical walk of about 75 yards to the vehicle where the driver will load your luggage into the hold. In the unlikely event your ship is delayed into port, we will delay our departure time accordingly (applicable only to the listed ships we service). For all delayed ship arrivals we will aim to leave at the latest one hour after docking (earlier if possible).
Arrival at London & Heathrow
We depart Stow-on-the-Wold at 2:45pm and arrive at Heathrow hotels and terminals from 4:45pm subject to traffic, arriving in Central London 6.00pm and 6:30pm.

If you are flying from Gatwick, Stansted or Luton Airports we can drop you at Victoria Rail or Coach Station around 7:00pm – 7:15pm, where there are frequent trains and airport buses to each airport.
