    • Americans in Southampton during D-Day

      Southampton Dec 2, 2013 at 4:46 PM

      While visiting Southampton recently, someone told us of a wall that American servicemen wrote on before boarding their ship on their way to D-Day. Having visited Normandy on the other side of the channel, we tried finding this wall. We could not find it. Does it exist and is there a picture of it anywhere?

    • Transfer to Heathrow

      Southampton Mar 11, 2013 at 10:44 AM

      We will be arriving by cruise ship and want to get to London, Heathrow or Richmond, Surrey...near London. In the past it has always been a huge hassle getting off the ship and trying to get a taxi or bus. We do not want to take the cruise ship transfer to the airport because it is a huge ripoff---$100 per person. We have a friend who can come "collect" us as she says, but where could she meet us? How difficult is it? Thanks for any help here!

      My wife and I are traveling from Canada to Windsor in Oct. to pick up a river cruiser to go up and down the Thames River. We are also planning to go to Portsmouth to see HMS Victory. I am building a wood model of this ship and wanted to see the real one. Victory is going through a 10 year restoration and the top masts have been removed and I am trying to find out how much of the ships rigging is still in place. I emailed the HMS Victory people but have not received any replies. Actual current photos would be great if you have them. Thanks. Ron

      Hi,
      I will be arriving in London at Heathrow at 7AM, Sunday, August 28, 2011. I have a transfer down to Southampton through the cruise line. Once I get to Southampton, I can't get on the ship right away, so I was wondering if there is anything to do around the pier? I have difficulty walking, but I would like to see a little of the town, maybe have a cup of tea and a scone!

      Thank-you. Linda

      Spaces in Portsmouth Ferry Carp park at peak times

      Portsmouth Mar 6, 2011 at 3:14 AM

      I'm thinking of going to France for a few days in the May half term holiday from Portsmouth. I don't intend taking my car to France so expect to leave it at the ferry terminal and travel as foot passengers.

      I can accept the cost of the on-site car parking, but I wonder whether the car park ever gets full? We'll be arriving *early* morning after a 3 hour dash down to the ferry so it would be a pain if we arrived and found it full. There seems to be no concept of pre-booking a space.
