Travel by Train – Bath Spa University

Visiting us? Travel by train and benefit from a reduced rail fair from Great Western Rail services.

We've teamed up with Great Western Rail (GWR) to offer visitors to our Open Days and Applicant Visit Days a discounted ticket when you travel by train.

Travelling by train is a great way to get to Bath. Bath Spa train station is located in the centre of Bath next to the city's main bus depot, where you can take a U5 bus to Newton Park campus.

Alternatively, if you need to get to Sion Hill, we recommend taking the 700 bus, which departs from the bus stop on Manvers Street. For our Locksbrook Road campus, you can also take the U5 and get off near the Lower Weston Post Office, and campus is just a short walk from there across a footbridge.
