Timetable changes will speed connectivity with the Capital
Extra trains linking Bristol with London Paddington will make commuting between Bath and the Capital easier and quicker.
That’s the view of Marcus Evans, sales and marketing director at Bath Riverside, who said the three additional trains due to run from Bristol Temple Meads and London Paddington in the morning and evenings - increasing the service to three an hour rather than two – will improve the inter-city commute and reduce overcrowding.
Great Western Railway will release details of its new timetable on December 15.
Marcus Evans said: “Bath's appeal for Londoners is strong as ever, with commuters, students and weekenders searching for homes in this impressive Georgian city.
“Bath continues to top key market surveys and appeals to Londoners looking for a new or second home down country.”
The new timetabling will also see the introduction of 'fast' trains which won't call at Swindon, Didcot Parkway or Reading which will save around 10-15 minutes in journey times.
“We continue to draw people from the Capital looking for a home within commuting distance, or a half-way house for visits to the West Country or as a buy to rent.”
Marcus Evans went on: “Previous purchasers have once again been active buying up a second and even third apartment at Bath Riverside – which suggests they are recognising the strength and longevity of their investment.
