Next April we are going to spend 3 days in Bristol. We want to visit Bath and Stonehenge using public transport. I assume there will be a lot of trains/buses connecting Bristol and Bath, but I would like to know which is the best option to visit Stonehenge from one of these two cities.

    Much of the related question Visiting Stonehenge on the way from London to Bristol will apply to this one too

  • I know it's not public transport, but I'll add a plug for Mad Max Tours for a tour of places that it's just a pain to get to by public transport from Bath. We stayed in Bristol ourselves and used them for a great day out.

The bus is always cheaper but the train will be quicker.

It won't be hard to find either, personally I would take a specialist tour which would take you right up to Stonehenge itself, rather than having to go to Salisbury and then organise a taxi or local bus.

For trains from either Bristol or Bath check out: http://www.firstgreatwestern.co.uk/

for National Express Coaches: http://coach.nationalexpress.com/

But for specialist tours from Bath/Bristol http://www.scarpertours.com/tour/stonehenge

Hope that helps
