Cruises from Southampton (London)

Passengers on cruises from Southampton, England will find a happening city that’s just 70 miles (110 kilometers) from swinging London. It’s a favorite port for England cruises because of its proximity to the big city and Stonehenge, but in recent years it has also earned a spot on the radar amongst hip Londoners looking for a weekend escape. Before you skip off to London or elsewhere in the UK, do some sightseeing. Visit the old city’s medieval walls and the Bargate, an impressive 12th-century crenelated gatehouse. Or tour Tudor House and see hundreds of years of history unfold in one fascinating abode. Stonehenge, a World Heritage Site is only an hour away from this port and easily reached by tour bus or driving. Southampton also has a storied maritime past—it was the departure point for the Titanic and the tragedy is memorialized throughout the city. Nonetheless, it is a walkable, convenient port city teeming with friendly locals.
