Mike Higginbottom runs heritage bus tours in collaboration with the South Yorkshire Transport Museum to provide a nostalgia experience which gives a top deck view of Sheffield’s historic places, with a detailed commentary and opportunities to visit unexpected places of interest.
In 2022 the itinerary is A Bus Ride Round Attercliffe but other tours are in preparation.
Riding in the sort of vehicle that replaced the trams in the 1950s is itself an experience because buses have changed so much in half a century.
Please be aware that the Bus Ride uses a vintage vehicle which has no seatbelts. The steps on to the back platform and upstairs are steeper than on modern buses. Please discuss any specific mobility needs when booking.
Places are limited so that everyone can have a top-deck seat, yet people with mobility and other impairments are very welcome to use the lower deck.
Booking has now opened for the next Bus Ride Round Attercliffe which takes place on Sunday afternoon, September 25th 2022 from 2.00pm until approximately 5.00pm. To book this tour please click here.
