NEW ROUTEMASTER BUS TOURS TO LAUNCH THIS SPRING!

An iconic red route master bus will provide sightseeing tours in the World Heritage Site!

Over the Easter weekend of 19th - 22nd April 2019 a vintage red 1960’s London double-decker bus will be seen on the streets of Llangollen.

 

Routemaster4Hire is launching two new sightseeing tours both departing from the town, one to the summit of the Horseshoe Pass and the other to part of the World Heritage Site at Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

 

Tours will last 60 minutes, with 3 departures to each destination per day.

Enjoy the grace and charm of a bygone era onboard an iconic open-top London bus and take in the views of the stunning Clwydian Range or Telford’s Aqueduct. The cost of each tour will be £7:00 for adults and £5:00 for children, with concessions of £5:00 for the over 65s and children under 4 travelling free. The number for each trip is limited to 64 so early booking is recommended. Cash payments will be taken on the day or you can pre-book tickets by calling the Routemaste4Hire office on 01978 799 909.

Routemaste4Hire Managing Director David Lee explained,

 

“We hope the introduction of these tours will appeal both to those visiting the heritage railway and those in whom these buses evoke a feeling of pure nostalgia. After Easter our plan is to run the tours at weekends and increase services to 5 days a week over the summer holidays. We have an open-top and two standard Routemasters’ so the weather won’t be a problem”.

Joe Bickerton, Destination Manager at Wrexham County Borough Council said,

 

"It's great to see another new tourism business set-up to enhance the visitor offer within the World Heritage Site. The Routemaster bus is an iconic British vehicle and will no doubt be a popular attraction for our visitors from around the globe this year when they visit the site. We're now celebrating the 10th year of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct & Canal World Heritage site and more than ever, connectivity is vital part of the overall visitor experience so that the various engineering marvels are showcased - plus the new sightseeing routes will help generate additional business for traders across the area."
