How to get there
Travel to Bath and Box:
Bath is easy to access from all over the UK and the world.
Taxis are available from outside the Railway station or Orange Grove, which is next to the Abbey. Ask the driver to go to "Grove Farm at the top of Quarry Hill in Box". Information on taxi fares is available from Bath & Northeast Somerset Council or contact the Licensing Team.
High speed, direct train services operated by First Great Western link Bath Spa train station to London and its major airports. Journeys take about 90 mins. It costs about £40 return, but can be much cheaper if you book on-line and buy two singles in advance. Bath Spa train station is well situated, just 5 minutes level walk into the city centre's main shopping and tourist areas. See: www.firstgreatwestern.co.uk
Bristol International Airport is just 15 miles from Bath and operates direct flights from New York and Orlando in the USA, as well as most major European and UK airports. An express bus service to Bristol Temple Meads train station operates throughout the day, and Bath is just a 20 minute train journey from there. See: www.bristolairport.co.uk

Box is also easy to access by car, from junction 18 of the M4 motorway which links Bath to Bristol, London and South Wales.
There are three Park & Ride services on the outskirts of the city which operate fast, frequent services into the city centre, offering a hassle free, cost effective way of reaching the city centre. Parking in Bath is no fun at weekends (especially when Bath have a rugby match!) and we would recommend P&R at these times.
