Where does Princess Southampton transfer drop at LHR?

Recommended Posts

I am thinking on taking a 3pm flight out of LHR terminal 2.


I know National Express goes to LHR bus terminal and you have to walk, and an elevator to get to terminal 2.


Does Princess bus also go the same LHR bus terminal?


If we decide to take National Express, what time should we book our ticket?

Ships' coach transfers take you to your terminal.

Normally coaches are allocated to a single terminal - this is to make it simpler to unload bags but also means no trawling round all the terminals. (Except the last LHR coach, which mops-up the last few off the ship.) 


By Nat Express it depends on both your disembarkation time (usually but not always about 7am unassisted, & assisted from 7.30) and your flight time (allow 2 hours for airport formalities). 

The 07.30 coach (arrives 10.15am) is usually possible with unassisted disembarkation (haul your own bags) but pretty risky.

The next coach on current timetable is at 09.40am, very easy to make it but it arrives LHR at 12 noon

Thanks for the information.


If we take a Princess transfer, will the bus stop at Terminal 2?



See the first paragraph of JB’s response.

I did this 2 years ago. They were very specific about which bus you got on based on your Terminal. So yes, the ship's transfer does take you to your correct Terminal.
