train from Cheltenham to Kennsington area of London

We will be dropping a rental car in Cheltenham and taking a train into London--are there direct trains? Is train station near car drop on Swindon Road?

Nationalrail.co.uk. Cheltenham Spa to London Paddington. You may need a taxi to the station in Cheltenham.

If you are hiring from Enterprise, who have a depot in Swindon Road, in my experience (at another branch) they will take you to the station, which is the other side of town. Otherwise as LCFC says you will need a taxi, unless you are willing to negotiate the town centre to get to bus stops. So check with Enterprise first. Bus fares for more than 2 people will probably equal taxi fare.

A regular contributor to the forum often suggests Chippenham as Enterprise office is at station (But please check).

If this is soon, be aware that Cheltenham races will be 14th-17th (Friday) March which will disrupt local travel.

If you know your schedule start checking train fares about 12 weeks before the day, as there are substantial savings if you can commit to a particular timed train, Currently £16.50 per adult in advance rather than anything up to £102 for tomorrrow.

Be aware that peak time trains to Paddington can be very expensive. There are also good coach (bus) services to the centre of London.
