Bus from Heathrow Airport to Bath

National Express runs express buses from Heathrow Airport to various parts of the country including Bath. An alternative way to reach Bath from Heathrow is to take the Heathrow Express train to Paddington Station and then train to Bath Spa.

Taking a National Express coach to Bath, however, avoids having to journey back into central London and then out west again. The service between Heathrow and Bath takes about 2 hours and is reasonably priced (around ₤30 return for an advance fare booked online). Amendable fares are slightly more expensive.

There are presently services leaving Heathrow at 8.20am, 10.24am, 1.10pm, 3.15pm and 6.25pm.
Some of the scheduled departures would involve a change of bus and a wait in Bristol adding up to a journey time of nearly 4 hours. Check for the direct services which take 2 hours for the fastest service.

National Express tickets are available in a variety of ways and different pricing schemes. Booking on line at www.nationalexpress.com is easy. Traditionally, however, tickets are sold through National Express ticket offices located at coach stations, or by third-party agents including travel agents around the country. In general, tickets are sold at the 'Standard Fare' or at 'Advance Fares' when booking in advance.

Customers looking for a discount may want to consider a coachcard. National Express currently offers four different coachcards. These include:
the Young Person Coachcard – for those under 26 or full-time students of any age. This card allows for one-third off the standard fare;
the Family Coachcard – which enables one child (ages 3–15) to travel for free with one full fare paying adult (or 2 children with 2 adults);
the Senior Coachcard – which allows for one-third off the standard fare;
and the Disabled Coachcard – which also allows for one-third off the standard fare.

Buses from Heathrow Airport arrive at Bath Bus Station.
