400 Exmoor Explorer

Hop on board, then step back in time, on this unique open top heritage bus, that takes you on a 30 mile journey, through the most beautiful scenery in Somerset.  What better way to experience breathtaking Exmoor, with its pretty villages, heather clad moors, deep valleys and dramatic coastline, on board an open-top double-decker.
Maybe stop for a cream tea, or discover the castle in Dunster, or head inland to Dunkery Beacon, Exmoors highest point.  You discover picturesque Exford, and enjoy the carvery at the White Horse Inn, or follow the coast to Porlock with its pretty shops and pubs.
The 400 starts at Somerwest World in Minehead and takes over 2 hours to complete the route.  This video is a souvenir of the journey.  Filmed in late summer 2002 we take a journey on the bus covering almost the entire route.

The vehicles used are 1956 Bristol Lodekkas with Eastern Coachworks O60R bodies.  They are a batch of three purchased from Southern Vectis earlier in the year.  One is in overall cream livery, the other two in the attractive apple green and cream scheme still carried from their days on the Island.  Two of the latter were used during the filming of this video.
500 returned to the Isle of Wight in October 2002 to take part in the Bus Museum Running Day.  Our cameras accompany her on service 2 from the Quay to Cowes and back.
If you enjoy the delights of open-top bus travel - sit back and enjoy the ride!
