Heathrow airport is all the way easy to reach by road or public transport and also has many options to reach any final destination within the U.K. If you are a tourist visiting, let’s say Southampton, between Heathrow Airport and your destination there is a wide choice of transport (both public and private. Anyway a thing worth mentioning is there are no direct shared van shuttle services available, though there is a cruise bus which is very similar.
Another option would be the Southampton Cruise Bus Shuttles being the only door to door shared service. These vehicles are normally full size touring buses that pick-up from the Heathrow hotels, but not passenger terminals. In the opposite direction, from Southampton the buses do stop by passenger terminals and the main Heathrow hotels. But in either direction the buses take a break half way at Stonehenge. Among other things, train services are not viable between Heathrow and Southampton simply because there is no direct service.
Of course for classy tourists for whom money is by far an issue, a private car service will probably be the best door to door service at the time specified by them. If you are looking for a taxi from Heathrow Airport to Southampton, the best solution is by far, provided by 365 Airport Transfers engaging you in a pleasant journey that will take about 1 hour and 15 minutes (without any possible traffic problems).

Last but not least let us not forget that Southampton is a charming destination. Known for its sea scenery along the Gulf Solent, Southampton is a modern and restless city, filled with huge shopping malls, modern buildings and an interesting past. This way, it does not take long to discover the old charm of the city, and the remains of the medieval city wall adds up to its character, along with some very old buildings.
Due to its location, the city of Southampton has gathered considerable wealth from shipbuilding industry, with many notable ships that were built here over the years, including the Queen Mary and the unfortunate Titanic.
