wi-fi on First Great Western train services
Thank you for your email received regarding WiFi on our services between London Paddington and Swansea.
Wifi is available on our services to Cotswold. There is still some uncertainty around the exact dates of installation on other services due to various engineering commitments.
The installation works will begin this summer 2014 and are intended to be completed around Christmas time.
The service will become available on each train as installed over the year.
Thank you for contacting us.
The Heart of Wales Line
Swansea is one of the final destinations of the Heart of Wales Line, a train going through the center of Wales from Swansea to Shrewsbury. I wrote about it on my Brecon Beacons page, so I just want to say here: If you have any chance to use this train, even for a short part only, do it. This train ride was one of the highlights of my trip to Southern Wales.
travel to Swansea
Trains to Swansea leave from Paddington Station in London.They are fairly regular and the journey takes about 3 hours.
It is always wise to book a seat 24 hours in advance.
Travel by road from London is on the M4, and again takes about 3 hours if the traffic is light.
