Even though we’re an island, it’s surprisingly easy to enjoy a holiday abroad without flying. The most popular choice is to take the Eurostar train from London across to France, Belgium or the Netherlands.
The Channel Tunnel is so convenient and the crossing only takes 35 minutes. You can choose to take the traditional train, or if you enjoy driving around yourself, take your car with you on the specially designed car train from Dover.
Once in France, international trains are an enjoyable way to zip across to Italy, Spain or Germany.
If you’re hoping to head further afield, you’re in luck too. Southampton is a major cruise port, and ships sail all over the world from Britain’s south coast.
Most notably, Cunard operates a weekly service between Southampton and New York, which features a luxurious trans-Atlantic crossing on their famous Queen Mary 2.
If you’ve got more time on your hands… and have a generous budget to play with… some cruise lines start round-the-world cruises from Southampton, which will give you the most incredible opportunity to circumnavigate the globe without ever stepping foot in an airport.
