Directions by car: The centre of Bath is within easy walking distance for able-bodied people using the Park and Ride or any city centre car park. Park and Ride facilities are open Monday-Saturday 06.30 to 20.30.

From the M4: Leave the M4 at Junction 18 and take the A46 towards Bath. Alternatively, follow the brown traffic signs saying 'Roman Baths' along the A46 and A4 to Bath and then the Roman helmet symbol to Charlotte Street car park. Directions by public transport:

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 service that is likely to be cheaper, try London Waterloo. Major cities such as Birmingham and Manchester have frequent services via Bristol. The south coast ports of Southampton and Portsmouth have direct services by train.


Preferred partner hotel - Please use promo code 'ExPlay12' when booking direct.
