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

by jeana-r

Hi,
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,
Jeana

As far as getting from Southampton to Bath is concerned - no problem really - have a look on http://nationalrail.co.uk/ for train times from Southampton Central to Bath Spa. Getting from the berth to the station can be about 30 minutes walk depending on which berth. Look at Google Maps for walking directions.

Journey to Bath (you need Bath Spa station) takes about an hour and a half, and there are fairly frequent trains. Most are direct. Return fare is from 26GBP, or 24GBP is you choose specific off-peak trains.

I imagine the terminal website suggests a taxi because most people have luggage.

There is also a free shuttle bus operating between the station and the ferry terminals (near the cruise terminals) which may be of use. Timtable and route map here:

Bath certainly is possible in a day. Its a small compact city in a vally and most tourist sites are within ten minutes walk of each other so no need for public transport. Best advice is to have a good map with you and to know in advance where you want to go.

Chances are you'll probably dock at either the City cruise terminal at Mayflower Park, or the Mayflower cruise terminal which isn't at Mayflower Park... I know! Whichever you arrive at, exit the dock at Gate 10 and its literally 5 minutes from there to the station (next to Toys R Us). Without baggage you certainly don't need a taxi!

Here is a good map of the port itself:

Both are in good walking distance of Southampton Central railway station. Trains to Bath are every hour so no great wait and the trip is about 90 minutes.

Nice OBSM presentation by the way :-)

The QE2 in Southampton Harbor

by MarkJochim

Since becoming interested in ocean liners, I was always unfortunate in that I always lived in landlocked areas of the U.S. (Tennessee, Kansas, and New Mexico). Occassionally, family trips took us to California where I was able to tour the 1936 Cunard liner Queen Mary in Long Beach harbor and was fortunate to see the old Rotterdam at her pier in San Francisco about 1982; we took a harbor cruise and I was able to take several photos as the liner departed on a cruise to Alaska.

But I was never able to see my favorite liner, the QE2 until I visited England in May 2003.

Visit to Southampton

by SueWarwick

"First Memorable Visit"

Apparently as a kid I went to the New Forest, on the outskirts of the city but I can't remember a thing (I must be getting old)
I popped down to Southampton in December because: a, I hadn't been in a plane for a few months and was getting withdrawal symptoms, b, the flights were cheap and c, there was a Christmas market (I hate shopping and need all the inspiration I can get over the festive period - bah humbug)
I was presently surprised by the city and there are two very good points, it has an aviation museum and was the place where the first pro-type Spitfire flew from.
Also, there are strong ties with ye olde Viking bloke King Canute - I was working on a major Viking project at work so that too was of interest (http://www.wirral-mbc.co.uk/vikings)
The city feels quite safe, has plenty of open space but is rather small, you may struggle to find much to do over more than just a day.
