Getting around the Festival
Bath is a small city and easy to get round on foot, but it’s also well served by city buses into the evening.
Larkhall (Rondo Theatre) is on buses 6&7, and not at all far from bus 13.
Getting back late
Trains run back to Bristol after midnight every night, and after 1am every night except Sunday (23:51)
Buses to Saltford, Keynsham & Bristol run hourly every night till 1am except for Sunday when they stop at 11.
Trains run to Chippenham, Swindon, Reading & London until about a quarter to 11, except Sunday (22.23).
The last train to Frome via Bradford, Trowbridge & Westbury, etc. is at 23.38 most days (Sunday to Friday) and 23.29 on Saturday. Annoyingly it doesn’t make it as far as Frome on a Sunday.
There is railway engineering work scheduled around Bristol for the Bank Holiday weekend (May 27-30) but it’s not supposed to affect any of the routes mentioned above. Worth checking timetables nearer the time.
