On Wednesday 30th October enjoy a free retro bus trip across Preston from Ashton-on-Ribble to Fulwood and the city centre.

Ribble Vehicle Preservation Trust will be supplying a fantastic bright red double decker to ride and explore the city.

Running every 30 minutes throughout the day from 10.30am to 4.30pm the bus starts from the Ribble Steam Railway at Preston Docklands and takes a circular route making stops at the Lancashire Infantry Museum, the Museum of Lancashire and then the Harris Museum before making its way back to the Ribble Steam Railway.

It’s a hop on/hop off ride so you can visit each museum and stay as long as you like.

The organisers would like you to note that due to their vintage, the buses are unable to cater for wheelchair users and people with reduced mobility may have difficulty accessing the bus. Assistance will be available.

The bus stops at the car park at the Ribble Steam Railway, the last bus stop on Watling Street Road before Sir Tom Finney Way for the Lancashire Infantry Museum, the car park of the Museum of Lancashire and the Park and Ride stop at Jacson Street for the Harris Museum.

Free event (Ribble Steam Railway charges for admission)
