Buses run twice an hour from this train station; trip time is 1 1/4 hours.

One National Express bus a day (no. 403) leaves London's Victoria Coach Station at 7pm and arrives in Glastonbury at 10:50pm. For more information and schedules, call tel. 0871/781-81-81 or visit www.nationalexpress.com.

If you're driving, take the M4 west from London, and then cut south on the A4, via Bath, to Glastonbury.
