Discover new places by bus

1 month ago Mon 8th Apr 2024

We are lucky to be in such a stunning area of the country.  It is often easy to forget what’s available to enjoy locally.

We are challenging everyone to get out and Discover a new or forgotten location by bus this spring and summer.  We are all hoping for better weather, but just being out in the open air (even if the sun’s not shining) can do wonders for our health and well-being.  Plus travelling by bus means you are also doing your bit for the environment and helping to ease congestion in the area.

Don’t forget all single bus fares are just £2 until at least 30th June 2024 or there are savings to be made with a dayrider or group dayrider if travelling with friends and family.  Dogs are welcome on board (paws on the floor please and not on the seats) and up to two children under 7 can go for free with an adult.

Here are some of our top places to Discover by bus
