Going from London to Bath by bus is much cheaper than taking the train, but takes a lot longer. It is not recommended if you hope to visit Bath on a day trip from London.
Buses to Bath leave from London's Victoria Coach Station. (Note that trains from London to Bath leave from Paddington Station not Victoria Station). There is usually at least one bus per hour, sometimes two per hour. Journey time is a minimum of 3 hours 20 minutes, often longer, and some routes require you to change buses.
The big advantage of going to Bath by bus is that the fares are cheap, compared to the train. But if you only have one day to visit Bath from London, it is better to pay the extra and take the train to give yourself as much time as possible in the city. If you do decide to take the bus to Bath from London, always check the times and fares first (see National Express link below).
