Getting to Bath from London - tours or independent

Bath Georgian crescent
See iconic Georgian crescents in Bath

The most painless way of visiting Bath is on a one or two day tour from London. For time poor visitors the most popular is the Windsor, Stonehenge and Bath tour that visits all three world class attractions in one long day. Full details of the different kinds of tours are on our Bath Tours page.

However, these tours will only give you between 90 minutes and 3 hours in Bath. (Unless you choose our make-you-own 2-day visit to Bath, where you opt to spend overnight in Bath.)

It is very easy to get to Bath independently from London. Full details are found on our Getting to Bath from London by public transport page.

For a day tour, regular fast trains run from London's Paddington Station take only around 90 minutes and run until late. Frequencies are twice hourly for most of the day.

Cheaper and slower are National Express buses from London Victoria, only worth considering if you're staying more than one day.

Where to stay in Bath

Bath is a fabulous destination for visitors to London for longer trips, overnight or for a few days or more.

Choices for accommodation are as you would expect, with budget options available on the outskirts of the city, and luxurious options right in the city centre.

Some people take one of the popular Bath tours such as Stonehenge and Bath, and choose to make their own way back the next day to London.
