  • HOW TO GET TO BATH

    Bath is located 100 miles west of London and 170 miles south of Manchester.

    The wedding is located in central Bath and there are a variety of transport options to get there.

    BY CAR

    The most straightforward route is via the M5 (from the North) or the M4 (from the West / London).

     

    Parking is limited in Bath so make sure you check out the options with your chosen accommodation. There is no parking at the venue itself, you may be able to find a space on a road nearby or the nearest carpark is Charlotte Street Car Park (Charlotte St, Bath BA1 2NE) (a 7 minute walk away from the venue).

    BY TRAIN

    Trains run regularly from London Paddington to Bath Spa (every 15 minutes on weekdays and every 30 minutes on weekends) and take approximately 1 hour and 25 minutes.

    For those that have to work on the Monday morning (I'm looking at you teachers), there are trains that will get you back into London by 8am. The station is located in the city centre.

     

     

    BY PLANE

    Heathrow Airport is 100 miles east of Bath on the M4 motorway.

    A regular National Express coach service runs direct from the airport to Bath.

     

     

     

     

     

     

  • WHERE TO STAY

    Bath is blessed with a huge number of wonderful places to stay catering for all budgets.

     

    Given the wedding venue is in the centre of the city, we would recommend staying in the city to minimise transport times on the day of the wedding. But we understand that some people will want to stay in a country retreat just outside Bath!

     

    Parking can be an issue within the city itself so please check with your selected hotel before booking if you intend to drive to Bath.

     

    Below is a number of hotels vetted by us. There are also plenty of AirBnb options.
