Open Top Bus Tour - Sunday 3 November

£100.00

The Open-Top Bus Tours give spectators the opportunity to be involved and experience the 60 mile route taken by the veteran cars. You will be able to soak up the atmosphere in Hyde Park with your own dedicated viewing area near the start line and then follow the cars down the route to the halfway checkpoint at Crawley High Street.

Veteran cars will be stopping in the High Street for interviews, there you will have the chance to watch the cars pass the halfway mark of their journey. From here you will continue to follow the route with your next scheduled stop at the finish line at Madeira Drive in Brighton. In Brighton you will have access to the paddock area where you will be able to view the cars as they cross the finish line and celebrate the end of an historic day. Due to the unpredictable British weather the buses will only be filled to 50 per cent capacity giving everyone the opportunity to shelter on the lower deck in the case of inclement weather. Make sure you wrap up warm!

The ticket price includes: One return open top bus ride from London to Brighton, one official souvenir programme and an exclusive access pass to the paddock on Madeira Drive.


If booked, further instructions will be sent to you at the beginning of October. The timetable is subject to change, but is likely to follow the following schedule:
