Bristol Airport

Of course the majority of visitors from overseas will arrive at London Heathrow or London Gatwick. From there one can reach Bath by train or coach quite easily, but there is another possibility.

If you are lucky you may be able to get a flight to Lulsgate, the airport of Bristol. This is a small pleasant facility -- and one can hope to pass through the airport very quickly. From Lulsgate, the luxurious way to Bath is by taxi. The journey time is about 40 minutes and, at the moment, the fare is about £25. The cheap and cheerful way to Bath is to get a bus from the airport direct to the Bristol Railway Station called Bristol Templemeads. From there you can catch a train direct to Bath (= Bath Spa). Then catch a number 18 Bus to the University from the Bus Station adjacent to the railway station.

Transatlantic flights to Dublin sometimes connect with flights from Dublin to Lulsgate. Here is a list of airports from which Lulsgate can be reached by a direct flight. There are scheduled connections via these airports to and from almost everywhere. Notice especially that Dublin, Edinburgh, Frankfurt, New York and Paris are on the list. This information will be updated as time goes by.
