Operated by FirstGroup Plc, First Great Western has come to be associated with scenic journeys through the beautiful English countryside and trips to seaside resorts in the Cotswolds, Devon and Cornwall.

First Great Western operates much more than just regional services though, with intercity trains and commuter services from London Paddington passing through major regional hubs, including Cardiff, Bristol, Swansea and Plymouth. Passengers can also enjoy top quality entertainment from the comfort of their seats when travelling in First Great Western entertainment carriages, now in more than 50 high speed trains.
