Train Stratford to Cardiff

We are hoping to spend two days in Stratford then take a train to Cardiff. Is it possible to get a train to Cardiff from Stratford?

zeehan,

Yes, but you will have to change trains. If you use

www.thetrainline.co.uk

and put Stratford (Assuming you mean Stratford on Avon) and Cardiff in, you will be able to see the routes given. Usually via Birmingham. The site may ask for a Post Code, which you can put the one of a Hotel or Guest House in the UK, then once registered, change it to your home one.

Hope this helps.

Don't know the answer, but until someone does have a peek at www.thetrainline.com for schedules and prices (and routes). You have to sign in I think, but it works pretty well.

Hope it helps

Thanks for your help people. We are going to take the train to Stratford-Upon-Avon for 2 days, train to Cardiff for 2 days, then train to Oxford for 2 days. That website will be a great help. Seems like we will be spending a lot of time on trains, but we like that! It's all part of the holiday.

Hi Zeehan

I can't better the advice on here regarding the journey - you can expect it to take about 3 and a half hours because there is no 'as the crow flies' rail route between Stratford and Cardiff, so you have to go via Birmingham and Bristol (Bristol Parkway station).

However, I hope you feel your time in Cardiff will be worth the effort! If you are looking for tips on what to do, see etc once you get here please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Jim
