Taking the train from London to Southampton to board a cruise ship

Jump to last reply

We will be in London for a stay prior to a cruise departing from Southampton.

Is taking the train from Fenchurch Street Railway St to Southampton a feasible way to travel between London and the cruise port? It looks like there might be one change of trains along the two hour trip - we will have some luggage, but not so much that we can't roll it along.

I am assuming we would need to go to Southampton Central (SOU). Anyone know how far it is from the Southampton Station to the cruise ships? It doesn't look too far, but I haven't ever been there, and I know maps can sometimes be deceptive.

Or would we be better off arranging some other mode of transport? Bus? Car? We will be making this trip on a Saturday morning in June, if that makes any difference.

Looking for an economical, but not stressful, way to get where we are going. Am more than happy to pay extra to avoid "stressful," but we are experienced travelers, and do not need coddling.
