If you like classic busses, enjoy a pint or two of beer and are fond of a countryside walk, then boy do we have the event for you.

The Isle of Wight Classic Buses, Beers and Walks Weekend takes sightseers and drinkers on vintage bus tours around the Island, taking plenty of pub breaks along the way.

You’ll find speciality beers at many of the stops, perfect for quenching your thirst, while a selection of walking routes provide excellent, scenic respite for those who like a little exercise alongside their tipple.

Last year, around 90 classic buses and coaches took part, operating on 14 routes and visiting some 80 pubs – and you can expect more of the same in 2018.
