Dig out your winter woollies and experience the magic of Christmas aboard an open top bus.

Running nightly between 8th and 23rd December, the annual Southern Vectis Christmas Lights Tour offers spectacular views of the Isle of Wight at night and visits some of the Island's best Christmas light displays.

With the bus decked out in tinsel and lights, Christmas tunes playing overhead and Santa behind the wheel, the Christmas Lights Tour is the perfect festive night out for families, friends, couples, adults and children alike - a truly unique way to enjoy the Island at Christmas.

Journeying between the Island's best Christmas Lights displays, the tour starts at 1830 and lasts approximately three hours with a couple of festive stop offs along the way for mince pies, hot drinks and other Christmassy surprises!

The Christmas buses will run nightly from either Ryde or Newport Bus station, starting and finishing from your chosen bus station. See dates and details below.
