Arriving in London by coach
Long-distance buses are called "coaches" in Britain
Coaches are very much a second choice when it comes to long-distance travel in the U.K., as the trains are much faster.
However, sometimes the train is not an option, and coaches do have the benefit of often being quite a bit cheaper.
How much are coaches to London?
Check out these bus fares:
- London–Bath: £5 (on National Express)

The London coach station
Note that London's main coach terminus, the Victoria Coach Station is—a bit confusingly—actually located two (long) blocks south of the Victoria Rail Sattion (and its Underground stop), at the SW corner of Buckingham Palace Road and Elizabeth Street.
