Hello Elizabeth,

Thanks for your question.

You would have to travel as follows:

- London Kings Cross station to London Paddington Station – UK Underground train

- London Paddington Station to Bath – ATOC train

Please click on the “Fare Details” tab to view details regarding the type of fare, type of seat, whether a reservation is included or not and the After Sales Policy.

Kindly note that " Reservation Not Included" means it is an open ticket and one can travel any time as per the availability of the train within the validity printed on the ticket. Please note that an open ticket can be used to travel on Intercity trains only. Also an open ticket allows you to board the train, but does not guarantee you a seat. You can make a seat reservation to have a guaranteed seat on the train. You cannot travel with an open ticket on high speed trains, night trains, scenic train and on Eurocity trains.

" Reservation Included" means seat reservation cost is included with the cost you pay for your ticket and it guarantees you a seat.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then Add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps!!!
