2022 UK Open-Top Bus Services

The list below is a compilation of bus services in the UK that are due to be operated by fully and/or part open-top vehicles. It consists of a mix of normal service bus routes that happen to use open-top vehicles and specialist tour operations (indicated in bold where part of a wider tour brand). Information about each one – for example dates and times of operation – can be found by clicking on the route name which will take you to the relevant website. Most entries are sorted by town/city name however areas with high tourism and several open-top operations close together, or where a route links two popular towns, have been grouped together (‘Cornwall’, ‘Devon’, ‘Lake District’, ‘New Forest’, ‘Newcastle and Tyne & Wear’, ‘Pembrokeshire’, ‘Somerset’ and ‘Thanet’).

It should be noted that in times of adverse weather or reduced vehicle availability, closed-top vehicles may be substituted. This information is provided in good faith, but if travelling specifically to ride on an open-top bus then it may be worthwhile double-checking with the operator in advance (written next to each route brand/tour name and website link).

Services highted in red ran last year but not found any confirmation as yet as to whether they are returning for 2022.
