Getting here

It's very easy to get to the city of Bath. The University and city have excellent transport links, with Bath well served by trains from London, Wales and the South West. Bristol airport is just a few miles away and there are plenty of buses and taxis to get you around the city itself once you're here.

If you're staying with us on campus, there are regular buses between the city centre and the University.
