From Bristol Airport to Bath University

by 2me

Hi guys,

I would like to ask if anyone of you got the details of how to get from Bristol Airport to the University of Bath?

As I am a new to the area I surfed the net and got this path:

From Bristol International ==> express link to Bristol Temple Meads Rail station ==>????
Is Bath Spa Railway Station nearer to the University than Temple Meads?
How much all of that would cost me from airport to University campus?

I will be attending a seminar for my PhD work.

Thank you in advance.

Hi

The advice you have been given is the best and cheapest route to Bath University. The Bristol express to Bristol temple Meads is cheap and frequent and the trains to Bath Spa are regular and only take 10-20mins. You will need to get the Bus, number 18 from the station to the University campus. Bristol is about 15 miles from bath so Bath Spa is your nearest station to the University. There are no direct buses or trains from Bristol airport to Bath. You can check train timetables on networkrail.co.uk from bristol to Bath, they are good if you are not arriving too late into Bristol.
Hope this is helpful.

Hi there,

Thank you so much for your prompt reply and welcome to the VT world, I noticed that you have just joined and there is no name by which we can call you.

Anyhow, hope to see your pages built up and once again thanks for the advice.

Cheers.

N.B: I would like to know if possible the cost of riding the bus you mentioned to the university and the train as well, I want to send a form containing all of the costs to the research center for funding.

Travel Tips for Bath

Roman Baths

by Imbi

The stunning roman remains over Bath's natural hot springs is one of those must sees of any trip to Bath.
Bath is naturally most famous for its Roman Baths,after all, the town is even named after them!
The Baths were built between the 1st and 4th centuries AD and were centred around the natural hot springs that rise up from the ground here at a constant temperature of 46.5 º Celsius (116 º Fahrenheit).
The Roman Baths are open daily but times vary according to time of year so do check in advance. Admission costs around £6 for adults.
It is worth noting that this is a very popular attraction so you should expect crowds - especially during the summer months and at weekends

Indulge in an Icecream

by jo104

On a hot summers day in Bath an icecream stop is mandatory. We settled on a 2 scooper at Thortons which came with a complimentary chocolate stick for less then GBP2. As you can see from the photo everyone's choices went down very well. Thortons is located in the main cobbled shopping street.

The following day our icecream stop was at Ben & Jerry's in the square just opposite the Roman Baths.

The Bath Skywalk and Walking in Bath

by daelight

A leisurely stroll in the hills surrounding Bath, The Bath Skywalk is one of the most spectacular walks you could wish for, especially when the weather is glourious. You can start either from Bathwick Hill or Widcombe Hill. The walk talks either a half an hour or 3 hours depending on picnic conditions :)

You can really go off the beaten path here but be careful, it is easy to get a little lost in the hills beyond and parts are steep so be sure to in fine fettle before you go. The beauty of this walk is you don't have to do the whole loop just do as much or as little as you like. There are lots and lots of walking trips you can do around Bath, it is a walkers paradise!

Hire a Car

by CandS

We hired a car and drove around the UK... It was easy for us since we are used to driving on the left side of the road, although the strange road signs had us wondering a few times... :)

The roads were all very good except for the traffic jams around the larger cities...try to avoid 'peak' hours if you can help it.

The distances between cities in the UK are all fairly short, it doesn't really take too long to get anywhere except if you stop for photos every few minutes. ;)

Regal setting for tea or lunch

by londonlover about The Pump Room

I had heard that this restaurant/tea room was a bit of a tourist trap, but I had a great experience here. We came for afternoon tea at 3:00 PM after touring the Roman Baths, and it was a lovely, refined tea service. I had my own pot of tea, along with my choice of three excellent tea cakes (choco, fruit, etc.). Others in my group had scones with clotted cream and fresh cake.

The best part was the energetic string trio (violin + viola + piano) that entertained for the duration of teatime (a daily ocurrence). They were fantastic!

Also, filming was done here for the Jane Austen movie "Persuasion," and Jane Austen refers to this room in the book of the same name.

It is called the Pump Room because mineral water is pumped up into a fountain from the natural spring below, which is sold by the glass for 50 pence. (No, I didn't try it!) The chocolate tart and tea (your choice of several varieties).
