    • Americans in Southampton during D-Day

      by pearldrop Online Now 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

      by suzenka Online Now 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 have booked train tickets online from Gatwick to Southampton via Clapham Junction at 3pm 3rd July. After saying they could reserve seats for us, once booked they said we couldn't.
      Does anyone know how busy that train is likely to be , esp the Clapham - Southampton leg?
      As we would have just got off a long haul flight we're hoping we wont have to stand!

      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

    • Car rental from Southampton to the New Forest

      by tapforfun Online Now Sep 13, 2010 at 8:22 AM

      Is renting a car the best way to see the New Forest in a short time? We were thinking of going to Burley and Lyndhurst to get a flavor of the area. It looks like it is a short drive. We will dock in Southampton on the Queen Mary and will just be there from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 19th. My elderly mother will be with me and she would like to see the area and go to a tearoom for a clotted cream tea. Those two towns look like good places to visit.

      Thank you!

    • Walking to Southampton Train Station from Cruise Ship Terminal / Day Visit to Bath?

      by jeana-r Online Now Mar 1, 2009 at 1:29 PM

      Many thanks for the suggestions offered to Globetrott regarding excursions from Southampton. This has helped me a great deal as I am looking to do something similar. (I work on a cruise ship which will call in Southampton several times during the summer).

      I am wondering if it is possible to walk from the terminal to the Southampton Train Station. The website for the terminal says it's about 1 -1.5 miles, and suggests a taxi. Is that because walking is not feasible? I'd prefer to walk if possible. I'll have no luggage.

      Also, I am considering visiting Bath (by bus or train), and would love to know if the experts on this board think this is feasible in a day.

      Thanks very much,

      Please inform me the name of the bus station that I should ask the taxi driver to take us to. Also, how much does the taxi drive cost?

      Are there are any other private bus companies operating from the cruise terminal or the bus station, and are tickets available when we arrive?
