Train from London to Bath

Jump to last reply

I have been playing on the internet all morning trying to find the best way and prices for four of us to do a day trip from central London to Bath by train. I really don't get understand all the prices and fares.
Is it necessary to make reservations? Should we book ahead -- there seems to be a 7 day advance fare, but I worry about the tickets being sent to me in the US before we leave next week.
We are thinking about going on Sunday, June 30, but I understand the "best restuarants" for lunch are closed on Sunday. Would we be better off going on Monday or Tuesday?
Can someone, Ben Haines, maybe, help with the best way to but or reserve these tickets? And do we need to confirm a return time, or leave that open. The special fare restrictions sound like we must reserve our return. We'd like to be able to stay as late as we want that day or maybe come home early.
