And we will help you enjoy your stay by taking care of your tickets to any of the numerous cultural or sporting events in Bath, by recommending restaurants or by just pointing you in the right direction.
Arriving by plane
The fastest way is to take the Heathrow Express to Paddington, from where
Intercity trains run to Bath (check out website
www.thetrainline.com. Less expensive and only slightly slower is the coach
link to Reading station, from where you can catch the Bath Intercity train
www.railair.com). Even cheaper, but slower (approx. three hours) is the
National Express coach link to Bath. Coaches depart from the Central Bus Station
between Terminals 1, 2 and 3 (follow signs at Heathrow)
Other London airports: Take a train to London and make your way to Paddington station by underground. Intercity trains to Bath run frequently. Or take one of the link coaches travelling to Heathrow and change at the Central Bus Station as above.
Bristol International Airport: Take a coach into Bristol, from where buses and trains run frequently into Bath. Or you might prefer to take a taxi to Bath.
