Mayflower Cruise Terminal
Southampton Mayflower Cruise Terminal Berth 106
Just off the A33, Mayflower is one of Southampton's four main cruise terminals.
If you are driving down, finding the terminal is fairly easy. Just follow the A33 heading for the Western Docks via Dock Gate 10. Signage is clear and frequent, so no need to worry.
Around a 20-minute walk, Southampton Central train station is approximately 1 mile from the terminal. While there are a few short cuts, it’s easiest to just catch a taxi.
The nearest airport is Southampton. While taxi’s are the quickest route to the port if you are flying in, trains to Southampton Airport Parkway, around a 5 minute walk from the airport, run frequently.
For those disembarking in Southampton, the arrivals lounge has ample comfortable seating for passengers to take advantage of. Facilities include standard and disabled access toilets, vending machines with a limited selection of snacks and drinks, as well as a magazine stand offering complimentary copies magazines.
As the arrivals area is open to the public, this allows for relatives or friends coming to meet you to come inside, making it easier to spot you and more comfortable as they wait.
