    Fly Down it is quicker and could be cheaper.

    You can fly to Bristol with Sleazy Jet cheaply. Then coach or I would imagine train to Southhampton.

    Fran I have done the Southampton trip a couple of times now and I hate flying but found it was for me the easiest option. I took the train to Inverness and flew Inverness Southampton. I'm not sure about cost though as you may get discount on your train journey.

    It's not far to the port from Southampton train station - I think it's only a couple of miles. You can probably get a bus - you could just ask when you arrive. A taxi wouldn't be too expensive, but Southampton buses are ok IIRC.

    Wow that's cheap for fares. I'm planning Wick to Nottingham next week and the train fair is 160 return I would almost be as cheap flying to Luton and getting a bus up. Train journey fourteen hours plane and bus eight hours.....if I didn't need to get either drunk or drugged I am tempted to fly lol

    Default Flying to southampton

    Flying from wick to southampton via edinburgh with Flybe 249.56 return If you can book a month or so ahead flying south from Wick is not that expensive when compared to train.
    If you have a air discount card the price I quoted above would reduce.
