Pre/post cruise activity - London/Southampton

Recommended Posts

Looking to cruise out of Southampton next year...would like to spend a few days diet before or after in London.  Does anyone have any personal experience doing so, or can recommend some resources with packages or arranging such a stay?  Plans are to fly to Heathrow, sail out of Southampton.  Not sure whether doing something g before or after is better.  Any perspectives?  Thanks!

We have stayed in London many times over the years. From Southampton, we take the train into London Waterloo, staying at one of the hotels - usually the Travelodge, which is about 400 yds from the station. 

 

If arriving at LHR, we either use Addison Lee car service or get Airprtr to ship bags to the hotel and we catch the Tube. If going for a cruise, we again stay around Waterloo, catching the train to Southampton.

 

We travel around London on the Tube, purchasing a card on arrival. Never book travel packages, as we make all arrangements ourselves.

We are on the Transatlantic sailing for the Mardi Gras in September of next year from Southampton to NY.  We are actually looking at coming in several days early and flying into France ... then hopping to Ireland, Scotland and then driving down to pick up the ship in Southampton.

Wow, you may need more than a couple of days for all that.
