No. The only buses you can use would be railway replacement buses. They would be used in situations when there's maintenance or disruption, but not during strikes.

When are you planning to travel in the UK?

It’s a strike day so only limited trains will be running between London Paddington and Bristol Temple Meads

It will be an hourly service leaving Paddington at xx:28.

If you want to avoid busy trains Megabus has tickets for 17£ (there are other companies).

Thank you very  much, do i understand that there are fewer trains wednesday?

Yes only one per hour and they will be quite busy. And you’re lucky : most lines do not have a single train that day !
