train from London

We are a family of five going to Ross-On-Wye from London What is the nearest train station? Do we need to catch a bus to Ross-on-Wye from a nearby town?

Cambridge, United...

I think Gloucester's probably the nearest railway station with a direct train line to / from London (trains leave from London Paddington).

There are buses from Gloucester to Ross-on-Wye - if you go to the Stagecoach website http://www.stagecoachbus.com/ you should be able to find out what numbers, how long, etc. I think it's 45 minutes - 1 hr.

Yes - Gloucester. The bus station is across the road (5 minutes walk even waiting for the lights) from the train station.

I <think> there are one or two National Express coaches a day right through to Ross from London.

Hereford train station is probably slightly nearer than Gloucs but the distance is so close it would make sense to choose the best route depending on the date / times of your travel

Have a look at www.herefordbus.info - you can use this to plan a journey from / to anywhere in the UK provided the journey starts / ends in Herefordshire. It gives you the option to plan a route either by bus or train or a combination.

Hope you have a lovely time

You could also get a train direct to Ledbury station. Which is closer than Hereford or Gloucester however you would need to check on when the buses run between Ledbury and Ross (if indeed they still do!)
