Bus is a must for days out at top attractions

24 Mar 2017

Bus travellers will enjoy exclusive discounts and special offers at top attractions across Kent and East Sussex this Easter. Bus company Stagecoach has published its 2017 ‘Big Bus Guide’ packed full of exciting things to see and do - just in time for the Easter holidays.

This year Stagecoach has teamed up with 37 attractions from across the region with offers including 2 for 1 entry, discounts and giveaways. Days out for the whole family feature alongside more grown-up venues such as museums, galleries and brewery and vineyard tours. The attractions are sorted into convenient categories allowing bus travellers to choose a theme for their day out ranging from historic, active, nature and gallery to entertainment, food or shopping. The offers available this year include:
