From Monday 3rd February 2020, there will be an 18 tonne weight restriction on the Cleveland Bridge. Vehicles over this weight currently passing through Bath on the A36 will be diverted on alternative routes. Please see Bath & North East Somerset Council’s website for more information.


By bus or coach

National Express operates a regular bus service from London Victoria, Heathrow and Gatwick airports. The dropping-off point is at the bus station, five minutes walk from the Roman Baths, see pedestrian map.

By train

Bath is an excellent city to visit by rail. The station is called Bath Spa. There are frequent high-speed connections to London Paddington. For a slower and cheaper service try London Waterloo. The Roman Baths is less than ten minutes walk from the station, see pedestrian map.

By bicycle

Bath is on the Sustrans National Cycle Route 4, which runs east-west through Bath, connecting Reading to Bristol. The immensely popular Bristol – Bath railway Path provides a tranquil walking and cycling path between the two cities. There is also good access from the south through the new Bath Two Tunnels Circuit, Route 244. There is helpful advice on the Sustrans website.

There is no direct cycle route from the north, and the A46 can be dangerous for cyclists, so it is worth planning a route that avoids this busy road.

On foot

Bath is well suited to pedestrians. Most hotels and guest houses are within easy reach of the city centre. Follow the on-street maps, or print out a pedestrian map. The Roman Baths are right in the centre of Bath, near Bath Abbey. The entrance is in Abbey Church Yard, BA1 1LY. See the VisitBath and VisitSomerset websites for more things to see and do in Bath.

By Car

The quickest and most straightforward route if you are travelling from a distance is likely to be via the M5 and M4 approaching Bath from the north and using the Lansdown Park and Ride, marked Park and Ride North. Full details of Park and Ride services for Bath can be viewed here. Bath Car Park charges can be viewed here.
