Trains between the two cities run approximately every 20 minutes, with some journey times as little as 13 minutes. Don’t forget that trains from Bristol Temple Meads also run to many areas of Bristol. For details and timetables see here.


The Bristol–Bath cycle route is a fantastic way to travel between the two cities. The 13 mile flat route is traffic-free along a disused railway line – more information at from Sustrans. For bike hire see Next Bike in Bath and Cycle The City, Jakes Bikes and Better By Bike in Bristol.


An excellent way to experience each city is from the water. Bristol Ferries operate a regular service from Temple Meads station to the city centre and around the harbour. Details of boat trips in Bath can be found here.


By far the best way to explore and experience both cities is on foot with their distinctive and beautiful architecture, hidden byways, parks and green spaces.

Your first stops for information on visiting and enjoying both cities are Visit Bristol and Visit Bath.
