About five trains per day depart London's Paddington Station for the 1-hour, 20-minute trip to Kemble, the nearest station, 21km (13 miles) south of Bibury. Some will require an easy change of train in Swindon (the connecting train waits across the tracks). For information, call tel. 0845/748-4950 or visit www.nationalrail.co.uk. No buses run from Kemble to Bibury, but most hotels will arrange transportation if you ask in advance.

Ten buses leave London's Victoria Coach Station daily for Cirencester, 11km (7 miles) from Bibury. For information, call tel. 0871/781-81-81 or visit www.nationalexpress.co.uk. With no connecting buses into Bibury, local hotels will send a car, and taxis are available.

If driving from London, take the M4 to exit 15, head toward Cirencester, and then follow the A33 (on some maps this is still designated as the B4425) to Bibury.
