Coronavirus Update Close

In line with the latest government guidance, we've put in place further measures in England to help customers practice social distancing. This includes limiting the available seats on buses.

Face coverings are compulsory when using public transport in England and Scotland. In Wales you must wear a 3 layer face covering on public transport and put it on before travelling unless you are exempt. It is also now compulsory to wear face coverings when using indoor public transport hubs in England only.

The safety of our customers and employees is our priority, so please avoid busy times, use contactless payment and take your litter with you. For up to date information see our Coronavirus page

Dates with a Difference

13 Jun 2019

Whether it's a first date or an outing with friends, we've got lots of fun and unusual activities for you to try. Whichever you choose, Stagecoach can get you there...

Plan your own scavenger hunt

This is the perfect way to show your loved one that you pay attention to them and value the time you’ve spent with them. The best part is it’s an inexpensive gift and the fun is in solving the clues and revisiting places you’ve been to together. Use pictures, riddles and word searches to guide your partner through the hunt, and end up at your favourite bar to celebrate with a tipple or two.

Go on a ghost walk

While it’s not for everyone (and you really need to know your audience or this could go horribly wrong!) going on a ghost walk can be a great way to spend time together while learning about the ghostly history of your local area. Most cities have their share of ghoulish tales to tell – here are a few to check out:

Try your hand at mini golf

If you’re looking for a fun way to spend the day, then mini golf should be high on your list. There are so many great themed courses, both indoor and outdoor, including Dinosaurs, Pirates and, our personal favourite, Junkyard. A little healthy competition is good for a relationship so brush up on your putting skills – winner buys dinner! 

Create your own fragrance

Perfume and aftershave choices are very personal; after all, it’s the fragrance that defines you. The Perfume Studio offers a wide range of packages that allow you to create your own scent. Sharing this experience with your partner means that you’ll learn more about what each other likes in a fragrance, making it easier to choose gifts in the future!


 Create your own gin

If perfume isn’t your sort of thing, why not try creating your own gin? The gin industry has exploded in popularity over the past few years, with new distilleries and flavours popping up faster than you can say “G & T”. 



Go on safari...well, a safari supper

First popular in the early 1960s, the safari supper has made a resurgence in recent years. While it usually consists of a group of friends having a starter at one house, moving to the next for the main course and finishing with dessert at a third house, we think it’s a great option for couples.  Choose a favourite bar to begin your evening with an aperitif, then grab your coats and head to your chosen restaurant for starters and, with each course, move to another restaurant, revisiting some old haunts from earlier in your relationship. Why not grab a dayrider and take the bus to each destination, meaning you can enjoy a libation with each course without having to worry about who’ll be the designated driver.


If your relationship is new, an Escape Room is a great choice of date. You can either choose to battle it out as a couple, or team up with your coupley friends and work together to escape. It’s a real test of cooperation, listening and reasoning so it’s a perfect way to find out if your relationship is built to last. Survive the Escape Room and you can survive most things! There is a number of Escape rooms across the areas we operate in so why not jump on a Stagecoach to get there.

Cooking Experiences

Food and drink experiences are the perfect way to try something new an have fun doing it. Whether your a dab hand at cooking or can't boil an egg, this is a great way to spend time with someone doing something different. If you carry on your night into the early hours, you can save on taxi fares by jumping on one of our night buses if they are available in you area.
