Trains to Trowbridge glide through Wiltshire countryside on the Wessex Main Line, before coming to rest in a quaint station to the west of the town centre. The station opened in 1848, and today it's a modern build that runs regular trains to Bath, Bristol, Cardiff, London and the south coast. Trowbridge has a long and varied history, and was known as 'the Manchester of the West' in the 19th century thanks to its flourishing wool industry. Although its Norman castle was destroyed many centuries ago, the ditch that surrounded it was eventually transformed into Fore Street, the commercial centre of the modern town. The local market dates back to 1200, and it continues to this day, with stalls set up each and every Wednesday. Visiting journalists might also want to pay a visit to the Trowbridge Museum and Art Gallery, where there's a permanent exhibition dedicated to the father of shorthand, Sir Isaac Pitman.

There are entrances on both sides of Trowbridge, but for the ticket office you'll need the west side of the station, off the Holy Trinity Church roundabout. There's a staffed counter here, and direct access to platform 1 (towards Bristol). Toilets are also on this platform. Access to platform 2 (towards London) is via a footbridge, or via a street-level entrance off Station Approach - the platform 2 side also has a much larger car park.
