Traveling to Bath is quick and easy from London for a day-trip. Typically there are two trains per hour running from London Paddington Station to Bath Spa Station and the journey takes around 80 – 90 minutes. Consider buying train departure tickets (open return to give flexibility on when you leave Bath) in advance to Bath as the tickets can get pricey and sell out.
Bath is a fairly small town, making it easily walkable for most. The train station is very close to the city center and you can access other spots easily on foot.
If you decide to make a weekend out of the trip to Bath, try finding a boutique hotel or bed & breakfast to fit the old English vibes.
