If you fancy riding around a military firing range in a fleet of old London double-decker buses, then ImberBus is the event to look out for — which I have written about in the past.

However, how to get to Warminster, which is the nearest major town to the abandoned village?

Yes, there is a local train service, or you can drive — but how about arriving in a former Green Line Routemaster coach?

The London Bus Museum will be running a single bus from London (Weybridge) down to Warminster and back again.

The bus will pick up at the London Bus Museum at Brooklands at 7.20am and also at Weybridge Railway Station at 7.30am, which is served by frequent trains from Central London. Arrival in Warminster is expected to be at approximately 10am, allowing plenty of time to sample the Imberbus network before the bus leaves at 5pm.

Tickets for this excursion cost £15 per person and must be booked in advance, so if you would like to travel on RMC1461 to Warminster, please click here

Note, the price is for the trip from London to Warminster — the ImberBus trips cost £10 for unlimited trips on the day.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

The ianVisits website has been running now for just over a decade, initially as a news blog, later adding the events listings guide to the offbeat and geeky events in London.

Advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It’s very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of the ianVisits website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what IanVisits provides, then please support the website here.

Thank you

  1. Or there’s South West Trains ‘£16 return’ promotional offer, which is running over the summer months.

    Taking the train won’t be as much fun as getting the coach down, but it is almost as cheap.

    I know the link provides the day for the trip, but it might have been helpful to have added the actual day, 20 August, in the article.
