I haven't made the trip to the cruise port from the station before but I have been to the station for work purposes a few times. It isn't too far from the port at all in fact it can be done in 5 or so minutes. I'd imagine a taxi fare would be relatively cheap.

It depends which terminal you are going from. It's about 0.5 mile to City terminal, 1.0 miles to Mayflower and about 1.5 mile to Ocean and QEII terminal. I would imagine a taxi would be less than £10.

Hello Nick,    The Taxi to Mayflower terminal from S'hampton. St., depending on traffic, takes app. 8 - 10 mins. Cost, app. £6.00.

The QE 2 Terminal, again depending upon traffic, 10 - 15 mins. Cost £9.00 - £12.00. QE2  T. is further south, and my least favourite, whether driving, or training and taxi.Hope this is helpful. K

Always plenty of taxi's at the train station and as previous post's have stated expect to pay £5 to £6 pounds to City and Mayflower, slightly more to Ocean and QE2.

It's not uncommon to see passengers walking!

I'm going back to 2011 now, but the cost then from the Ocean Terminal to the Station was just £6 pounds.

I remember it because I was expecting more, when coming from a Cruise terminal.

Hi Nick,

I do this several times a year for various reasons and the cost depends on which terminal. Mayflower and City are around £6 and Ocean and QE2 terminals are around £9. The fares I have given are approximate as it depends on the traffic.

Cost us £7 in June. Too far to walk as once the dock gates are reached it is a long roundabout route to the ship even though you can see it almost in front of you.
