Free rides on a heritage bus to and from The Diving Museum at Stokes Bay on

Saturday 28th August and Sunday 29th August 2021

11am – 4pm

Free vintage bus ride, £1 discount per person entry to the museum and half price cuppa at Bayside Cabin Café

To celebrate the August Bank holiday weekend we are joining forces with The Diving Museum, and Bayside Cabin Café to bring you a Summer Seaside Day Out to Stokes Bay in Gosport.

On the 28th and 29th August, a vintage bus from the Provincial Society will do a free circular tour of Gosport starting at Gosport Bus Station (which is right beside the Gosport ferry terminal) stopping off at The Diving Museum in Stokes Bay.

Pre-booking is not required. Go to the Gosport Bus Station and look out for a vintage bus in the green and cream livery of the Provincial Bus Company. You will receive a free souvenir bus ticket onboard the bus.

Present your souvenir bus ticket at the museum reception desk to get £1 off the entrance price and collect a voucher for a half price cuppa at Bayside Cabin Café. Our guides will be on hand to give you a tour of the museum if you so wish. Our enthusiastic volunteer guides will make your visit enjoyable, eye-opening and fun – for young and old alike. After spending some time exploring Gosport’s diving heritage, visit Bayside Cabin Café which is right next door to the museum and present your voucher to get 50% off the price of a cuppa.

When you are ready, catch the same bus back to Gosport Bus Station. It departs from the bus stop outside the Diving Museum 10 minutes past the hour until 4.10pm.

Tours start from Gosport Bus Station at 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm and return from the bus stop outside the Diving Museum at 11.10am, 12.10pm, 1.10pm, 2.10pm, 3.10pm and 4.10pm

Bring the family, jump aboard and enjoy a wonderful vintage summer weekend in Gosport.
We look forward to welcoming you.
