Coach collection service

Last updated: 03/10/2022 16:53

The Coach Collection service is now closed. There are a number of alternative routes you can take to get to Cardiff. Read on for further information.

Coach

You can use National Express (with stops at either Cardiff Castle or Sophia Gardens). We have arranged a 20% discount for students using the National Express. Or you can use Megabus – which stops at Friary Gardens by the Hilton Hotel. National Express is slightly more expensive, but Megabus stops in a more central location. Depending on where you live you might have to book a taxi to your accommodation – we would recommend using Dragon Taxis. Flixibus is a relatively new Coach service that runs from London and stops in Cathays, near City Hall.

Train

The main train line is Great Western Railway from London Paddington via Reading to Cardiff Central. You can book using National Rail Enquiries. Once you arrive at Cardiff Central, you would have to get a taxi, again we would recommend using Dragon Taxis

Taxi

You can book a taxi from London Heathrow to Cardiff which would likely be £150 - £200 per taxi. Locations closer to Cardiff would be cheaper.
