Rail Map of the South West with Timetables

and showing links to other parts of the country

London Paddington - Reading - Bristol - Cardiff - Swansea

The map shows links to the timetable for each route, in a box as near to the line as it can go without covering important detail. Our Heart of Wessex Line is the one shown in red; click on Bristol in the red box for the Heart of Wessex Line Guide timetable page or on Weymouth for the First Great Western timetable. Bruton is at B between Castle Cary and Westbury; Gillingham at G between Yeovil and Salisbury. Further information about travel around and to or from the South West is on the About Rail Links page, and a fuller range of timetables is on the Other Timetables page. Main continental links via London are included on this map to remind us that there are alternatives to air travel; more, and some exotic ones too, are at the bottom of the Useful Links page.
