London to Cardiff – best way to get there?

Written By: Gary on October 6, 2007 3 Comments

So I’m looking for a practical and cheap and semi-direct way to get from London, England to Cardiff, Wales. I figure my choices are train, bus or rent a car (I have no problem driving on the left). When I go to London in the spring I was thinking of spending a day or two over that way. Also, I’m looking for a place to stay in Cardiff near public transportation, decent but not too expensive (of course) a hotel or bed and breakfast would work. Of course I’ll want to visit this general area so I’ll need some walking tour information too (or book recommendation).

Cardiff Words LightI keep seeing it on TV and movies and other places so I thought I’d check it out. I’ve never been in that direction, I think the farthest west I’ve been is Stonehenge/Sailisbury.

Also, any bloggers who lurk around here and want to meet up drop me a note. I’m also looking for restaurant and other tourist recommendations. And if anyone knows about any Torchwood filming dates in the spring (I’m thinking they’re editing around now, so probably not) I’d be interested in that too, especially if you have any contacts related to seeing some of it.

    Unless you plan on making side-trips along the way, I’d take the train. It’s more comfortable than the bus, and the traffic in greater London will easily add time to your journey if you use a hire car (depending on the day and time… up to an hour!). The train will save you the exhaustion and frustration.

    I can’t remember the name of the hotel I stayed in downtown (Golden Tulip?) but there are several smaller hotels near the central square that are (relatively) inexpensive and convenient.

    I’m in Cardiff – I’d recommend going by train (I did it recently to London for £7 each way! Thats with a railcard and pre booking though). As for accomodation in the bay? Hmm…. don’t know, you’d be unlikely to find B&B’s in that area though.

    Cardiff, Wales – I love it!

    So we made it to Cardiff via Train from Paddington Station in London. Very easy trip, Cardiff is the end of the line so no chance of missing anything. Beautiful day here! And the view for the train ride was great too. While I love Cardiff so far, I hat…
