    Day trip to Bath - very much recommended.

    I'd never been before but can thoroughly recommend Bath as a day trip by train.
    Booking a week in advance with a F & F Railcard got the tickets down to just £43

    The Stats have just started the return journey, having arrived at 11:30.

    Lovely city, very clean and picturesque, even before taking in very good tours around the Roman baths and Abbey as well as going up to the Royal Crescent.

    I'm very pleased to have had a change of mind and headed west instead of up to that there London town.

      Been many times as my aunt lives in Bristol, lovely city indeed.

      Did you go via London or cross country via Salisbury? York is also worth a day trip.
      2 - 0 and Arsenal are all over the place!

      Salisbury, just the one change at Southampton Central.

      It is possible to go direct (or at least it used to be) on a First Great Western train that runs direct from Brighton to Cardiff, stopping at the major stations along the coast.

      Not sure you could use it in both directions for a day trip, but it might be possible to take it in one direction.

      Hate cities..Bath being an exception. Brilliant place. Cathedral,Roman Baths and the best Steak house I`ve ever been to "The Hudson". There is a train that goes direct from Brighton, I`ve always picked it up at Shoreham off peak. Train 1/2 full or less so a pleasurable experience for approx 3 hours.

      NO! - you have got this all wrong. Poor effort.

      Start thread - Any recommendations where to watch the game in Bath?

      If you get any positive responses, you then respond, thanks but I was only there for the day. Nice place for a day trip BTW.
      If you don't get any positive responses, you then respond, not a problem, I only went for a day trip. Nice place to visit BTW.

      The connection was only 5 mins going out, although it's a 20 minute wait coming back.




      Seemingly I'm a bit of an outlier thicko for not broadening our train travel horizons sooner.
      But if anyone is twiddling their thumbs, with the kids, at the end of these holidays I think you'll be hard pressed to better our day, today.

      I only changed our plans (from the science museum) because Richard Herring was trying to start a war between Wookey Hole and Cheddar Gorge!!!

      Naturally a train doesn't get you even close to either destination but Bath loomed large so I thought what the hell and am now jolly pleased I did.
