Why travel by train to Bath?

Arriving in style to a Listed Building and a World Heritage site is incentive enough, but rail is certainly a convenient choice for this spa town, which has limited parking and roads which can be congested. Trains to Bath are frequent and span a wide range of popular destinations. For example, it takes just 90 minutes to travel to Bath from London and there are services around every half hour. This is far easier and faster than attempting to make the journey by car. Bristol is also just a 20 minute journey away and trains to Cardiff, Reading and Salisbury take around 90 minutes too.

Before you travel to Bath by train - good to know!

The city may be best known for its baths, but there is plenty of broader interest in this fascinating historic hotspot. Head to Bath Abbey to see fascinating Medieval architecture, learn about fashion throughout the ages at the Fashion Museum and enjoy beautiful green countryside at the nearby Bath Skyline walk which is six miles long and a short bus ride from Bath centre. It's very easy to get around generally, as Bath centre is heavily pedestrianised and cycle friendly. There are also plenty of buses which offer great value day tripper tickets, not to mention taxis and hire car services.
