Dorchester South railway station is one of two stations serving the town of Dorchester in Dorset, England, the other one being Dorchester West. The station is on the South Western Main Line. It is 135 miles 70 chains (218.7 km) down the line from London Waterloo[note 1] and is situated between Moreton and Upwey. It is often cheaper to take a taxi to and from the station than parking your own car at the station. We ask all clients to pre book at least 30 mins before the train time if traveling from a Dorcester address and longer if traveling from further afield. It is again best to pre book for a return trip from Dorchester South as Bobs Cars charge a fixed agreed price whilst the taxi’s on the rank charge by the meter. The fixed price is always cheaper than the meter.
Dorchester West railway station is one of two railway stations serving the town of Dorchester in Dorset, England.

The line becomes double at the station and remains so to nearby Dorchester Junction where it joins the main line from London Waterloo station to Weymouth
The Port of Southampton is a passenger and cargo port in the central part of the south coast of England. The modern era in the history of the Port of Southampton began when the first dock was inaugurated in 1843. The port has been owned and operated by Associated British Ports since 1982, and is the busiest cruise terminal and second largest container port in the UK. The port is ten miles (16 km) inland, between the confluence of the rivers Test and Itchen, and the head of the mile-wide drowned valley known as Southampton Water. The mouth of the inlet is protected from the effects of foul weather by the mass of the Isle of Wight, which gives the port a sheltered location. Additional advantages include a densely populated hinterland and close proximity to London, and excellent rail and road links to the rest of Britain which bypass the congestion of London. The average tidal range is approximately 5 feet (1.5 metres), with 17 hours per day of rising water thanks to the port's "double tides". These allow the largest container and cruise ships access to the port for up to 80 per cent of the time, according to the container terminal operator DP World Southampton. The effect is a result of tidal flow through the English Channel: high tide at one end of the Channel (Dover) occurs at the same time as low tide at the other end (Land's End). Points near the centre have one high water as the tidal swell goes from left to right, another as it then goes from right to left. Neither is as high as the one at each end
Bobs Cars can supply a transfer from any south west address, railway station or indeed regional Airport to the docks, to connect with a cruise holiday
