The Split Worlds Masked Ball live RPG will be held on May 7th, 2016 at the Guildhall which is in the centre of Bath, on High Street. It is an easy 10 minute walk or 5 minute bus journey from Bath Spa station. Click here for a map of the area.
The Guildhall is accessible for those with limited mobility. There is no parking but there is a bus stop just outside, and a short stay car park nearby.

Travelling by Train

Bath Spa station is 90 minutes from London Paddington. Trains run every 30 minutes on weekdays and Saturdays, and roughly every 45 minutes on Sundays.
There is a direct line to London Waterloo which takes 2 hours. However, it only runs 3 times a day. If you need to travel from Waterloo or Clapham Junction, take the train to Reading and join the Paddington service there.
Bristol Temple Meads is 15 minutes from Bath Spa. Bristol is a large terminus with trains to most parts of the country.
All platforms at Bath Spa are fully accessible, with lifts to every platform and to the ticket office. The route from the station to the Guildhall is fairly flat. However, beyond the Guildhall the city rises on steep hills. If you have mobility difficulties you should bear this in mind when booking accommodation.
