Getting around the Festival
Bath is a small city and most Fringe venues are central or easily accessible on foot.
Larkhall (for the Rondo & New Oriel Hall) is well served by bus 7 (Larkhall) and also 13 (a couple of minutes walk away).
Both Universities are well signposted and on the 418 bus. Make sure you're going to the right one because they're at opposite ends of the route several miles apart!
The Royal Oak, Lower Bristol Road is just off some of the University 418/419 journeys, and certainly on the Number 5 to Twerton.
Royal Victoria Park (for nofitstate circus) is a short walk from the centre of town, or close by the routes of X39 (etc.) & 332 to Bristol, 319, and buses to Weston (14, 17)
Prior Park Gardens are on the Number 1 route (no less) towards Combe Down; the National Trust prefer it if you donít drive up there: there is no carparking (excelt for badged disabled vehicles) and itís a pleasant walk from the city centre.
The American Museum at Claverton Down is near the University of Bath, can be reached off the A36, or by their own shuttle from town 9see their website for details).
Holt is a bit of an expedition (past Bradford on Avon, whatever is your preferred route) but well worth it!!
Bristolians should note that the last buses back to your fair city are at 11 pm, but trains go back later around midnight and after 1am (except Sundays, midnightish); our friends in Bradford, Trowbridge, Westbury & Frome should be able to get a train back well after 11 pm any night, and Chippenham after 10.30pm except on Sundays. It's always worth checking with Network Rail for up-to-date details and changes.
