If you want to go from London to Salisbury by bus, you should know that National Express runs only a few buses a day from London’s Victoria Coach Station. At the time of writing the only way to make a day trip possible is to catch the first bus of the day, currently at 7am. This requires a change at Southampton, with a 45-minute wait, and doesn’t get into Salisbury until 10.30am. From London there isn’t then another bus until 11.30am, which gets you into Salisbury at 2.30pm.
At the time of writing, the last bus back from Salisbury to London is currently 6.25pm, arriving London 10.15pm after a change in Southampton. As you see, the bus journey isn’t the best way to get to Salisbury, and the saving on a return fare compared to the train is usually only a few pounds at most.
The bus stops at the Millstream Coach Park, which is just a few minutes walk from the centre of Salisbury.
To find current timetables and fares for the coach services going from London to Salisbury visit the National Express website.
