Getting from Heathrow to Bath

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be flying into Heathrow on BA on a Wednesday morning in late September. We'll be coming into Terminal 5 and we're heading to Bath for a couple of nights before going into London.

How much time should we allow for passport control & baggage pick-up in Terminal 5? We're flying business class, but I suppose that makes no difference?

As far as transportation to Bath, I've looked at the British National Rail website, and there are several different arrangements, including the express train to Paddington then a high speed train out to Bath. An advantage to this arrangement is that it leaves from Terminal 5. But it looks like it leaves hourly 12 minutes after the hour, and I'm not sure if we can make the 11:12, or whether we should play it safe & get tickets on the 12:12 train.

There are other routes that involve various ways to get to Reading, then a train from Reading to Bath. Some of these involve a bus, or a short train trip to Hays & Harlington, then to Reading, then to Bath. I know there is also bus service to bath, but on the National Express website it looks like it takes at least twice as long as the train.

Any experience with this trip, and advice on a good way to go?
