Travelling to Bath

The weekend of Friday 12 September – Sunday 14 September is going to be very busy for the city of Bath. It plays host to a leg of the Tour of Britain cycle race on Friday with 120 cyclists and 10,000 spectators expected in the city centre. On Saturday, the University of Bath will be hosting one of its award-winning Open Days and expects thousands of prospective students and their families to make their way to campus. Other events being held on that day include the Jane Austen Festival Promenade, a Bath Rugby home game, and several other events that you can find out more about here.

Every effort is being made by the organisers of each event to minimise disruption but the city will inevitably be much busier than usual. We therefore recommend you allow extra time for your journeys and use public transport where possible.


Located in the South West of England, Bath is easy to reach, just 90 minutes from London Paddington station by train and a short drive from both the M4 and M5 motorways. Bath is also just 20 miles from Bristol Airport and well connected by regular bus services. Bath Spa train, coach and bus stations are both in the heart of the city centre, which is of a compact centre and best explored on foot if possible.

If you have limited mobility and would like help getting around Bath, Shopmobolity offers a choice of manual or powered wheelchairs and electric scooters. It's also worth reading over our accessibility information about Bath.
