Vintage Bus Days

Free vintage bus ride around Alresford

Home » Events at The Watercress Line

On the first Sunday of the month from May to October* a FREE vintage bus service operates from Alresford Station. 

You do not need to purchase a train ticket to ride this service.

The vintage bus leaves Alresford Station on a circular route through Bishop’s Sutton at the following times on a trip lasting 20 minutes:

11.30  12.00  12.30  13.00  13.30 

then 14.30  15.00  15.30  16.00

Unfortunately, due to their age these buses do not have provision for wheelchairs.

This vintage bus service is operated by the Medstead Depot Omnibus Group, who are one of three groups under the Working Omnibus Museum Project Ltd, and their buses frequently visit running days and rallies around the South. MDOG is part of a charity established in the late 1980's which provides a storage depot for 18 vintage buses originally running bus services in the south of England. The buses are owned and maintained by individuals or small groups.

 

*Please note due to COVID-19 the Vintage Bus days in May and June have been cancelled. The situation is being reviewed all the time and the first running date will be announced when we are able to confirm a date.
