Getting to Scalefour Southwest/Railwells by public transport

There is now a half hourly bus service to Wells from Bristol. The bus is the Mendip Xplorer service 376, marked from Bristol to Wells, Glastonbury and Street. For those travelling by train, the bus stop at Bristol Temple Meads is at the bottom of the station approach on the right. In Wells, the bus stops at the HSBC bank 150 yards from the Town Hall. For the return journey, it is best to go to the Wells bus station or ask at the exhibition ticket office.

The one exception to the half-hourly schedule is there is no bus on Sunday at 1700 hrs; it skips this time from 1630 to 1730 and then goes on half-hourly. The bus is normally a comfortable double-decker, appropriately in a dark shade of Somerset and Dorset Railway blue.
