GWR Updates

A quick reminder about that services to and from London will be diverted via Bristol from this Saturday (14 March) through to Friday 3 April.


This diversion will add around 35 minutes to journeys between Taunton and Reading. The diversion is needed to allow for work on the stretch of line from Taunton to Castle Cary.


Coaches will therefore run between Taunton and Castle Cary, connecting with trains towards London Paddington, Weymouth and Bristol Temple Meads.


This will add significantly to journey times and there will be a reduced rail service. Please check the timetable before travelling. 


All our online systems show the revised diversion times and bus journeys, and there is a dedicated page on our website on
