Money and Tipping

England's currency is the British Pound (GBP) though England's version is called Pound Sterling. Though not expected, a small tip (5-10%) is appreciated when eating at restaurants or taking a taxi.

Local Transportation

Though all cruise terminals can be accessed without going through port security, shuttle buses are not provided and there is no public transport available. You will need to arrange private transport or take a taxi to the terminals.

Going to London

Frequent trains run on Southern Railway between Southampton Central and London Waterloo station. Fares range between 8 to 25 GBP (cheapest for offpeak journeys purchased online and in advance) and journey time is between 75 minutes and two hours. Purchasing return tickets will be cheaper than two one-way tickets and the return journey can be made within a month. http://www.southernrailway.com/

You can also take National Express buses from Victoria Coach Station. Fares start at 12 GBP and the trip takes 2 1/2 hours. http://www.nationalexpress.com
