Travel Details

The information below is an excerpt of which you are welcome to
visit. Also a map of the campus is available at

By car
     The University campus is situated on Claverton Down, to the east of
     Bath. The A4 and A36 roads run through the city; the M4 motorway is
     approximately 10 miles distant.

     If approaching from the M4, leave the motorway at junction 18 and
     follow the A46 8 miles to the junction with the A4. Turn right to Bath
     and after 3/4 mile turn left at the traffic lights (signposted "City
     Centre A36"); after 700 yards turn left at the roundabout towards
     Warminster. In approximately 300 yards turn right into North Road
     (signposted "Claverton Down"). The Quarry Road entrance to the campus
     is on the left towards the top of the hill (approximately 1 mile); the
     Norwood Avenue entrance is half a mile further on in Claverton Down

     If approaching from the city centre, the A4 or the A36 eastbound follow
     signs to "Warminster", "Claverton Down", "American Museum" and "Park &
     Ride (University)". If approaching from the A36 (northbound) follow
     signs to "Claverton Down".

By rail
     Bath Spa mainline station is on the London Paddington to Bristol line.
     Hourly services run to London, a journey of approximately 90 minutes.
     Bristol, with connections to the Midlands, the North and the South West
     is a 15 minute journey.

By coach
     National Express services operate from Bath Coach Station to London
     Victoria and other destinations.

By bus
     The number 18 bus service is operated by Badgerline (01225 464446)
     between the City Centre Bus Station and the University.

     From the station take the road that is straight ahead of you - the bus
     station will be on your left. Go into the road on your left immediately
     past the bus station. The No 18 bus leaves from the first bus stop in
     that road. Buses are about every 6 mins during peak hours in term time
     and about every 15 mins at other times; last journeys are at about
     2330. On Saturdays buses run every 15 minutes between about 0800 and
     2330, and less frequently before and after those times. On Sundays
     buses run every 15 minutes between about 1100 and 2300, and less
     frequently in the morning.

     Streamline (01225 311072) also operate a frequent bus service between
     Bath Railway Station and the University. Streamline Service No 418
     departs from outside the Berni Royal Hotel just opposite the railway
     station in Manvers Street.

     Buses run every 15 mins Monday to Friday from 0725 to 2340, and on
     Saturdays from 0725 to 2340. On Sundays and Bank Holidays buses run
     every 30 mins from 1015 to 2315.

By taxi
     Taxis are usually available from outside the railway station or from
     'Orange Grove', which is next to the Abbey. The fare up to the
     University should be about 4. From the station ask to go via 'Widcombe
     Hill' otherwise you are likely to be taken through town which may be
     more expensive.

Other information
     It is a few minutes to walk from the station to the city centre. The
     campus is about a mile from the city, and most of the way is uphill; so
     only try walking it if you're feeling fit!

     If you go into the city for some sight-seeing, you probably want to get
     the number 18 bus back from 'Orange Grove'.
