Rail services provide a fast, congestion-free link between towns (with a station) in Somerset and other parts of the UK. Most rail services are now fast, comfortable and efficient and offer the opportunity to relax, read or work whilst travelling.


Rail fares can be reasonable, particularly when booked in advance.

Unfortunately, Langport does not have a station and the nearest stations are at Taunton, Bridgwater, Castle Cary and Yeovil.
