OK, I can bond the flow and return pipes just above floor level no problem,
so they meet requirements to be accessible but can't see how I can bond th
e actual towel radiator. All pipework is copper all the way, is it really n
ecessary? The tails up to the radiator are around 15" any advice please?

if it's all copper, bonding one of the pies does bond the towel rail

You can't and there is no requirement to do so. A towel radiator is
incapable of bringing a potential into your equipotential zone by
itself! (its pipework may be able to, but that is a different thing)
I have a feeling that doing it at the point they come out the boiler
might be seen as taking the mick ;-) But within "reasonable
proximity", should allow for future pipework changes that could
interfere with continuity. As Adam says, I don't recall seeing a
specific distance quoted.
 Something like under a floor adjacent to the other side of the wall
etc would be easy to defend.
