We're so excited to launch our brand new bus route 27 to Tapnell Farm this Saturday 21st July!

Number 27 will operate every day throughout the six-week school break, starting this weekend until Sunday 2nd September.

Listening to feedback from customers and visitors, route 27 to Tapnell has been commissioned by Southern Vectis as a pilot service for 2018. If demand for the route is there, we hope to be able to roll out a more substantial service in the near future. So please do support your route.

Catch the open top number 27 direct to Tapnell Farm from Newport at 0900 for early opening. The open top bus will make a return journey via Tapnell again at 1735 – giving you a whole day to enjoy the farm park.

There will also be a special bus between Tapnell to Yarmouth during the afternoon, connecting with the rest of the Island.
