The Downs Breezer follows a circular route through pretty countryside, across the tops of the Downs with views out into the English Channel, across the Island and further on towards mainland England.

The bus links the Esplanade with Ryde town, Wootton Station, Robin Hill Adventure Park, Sandown Seafront, Isle of Wight Zoo, Dinosaur Isle, Browns Golf Course and Bembridge. Our open-top double deck buses with friendly local drivers run every hour from Ryde. Hop on and off anywhere along the route using your 24-hour ticket which also gives you unlimited travel on all our buses across the Island.





Isle of Wight Zoo

you can come too!...

The zoo, which specialises in big cats and lemurs, provides a fun, educational and wholesome day out for the family. For the smaller children there is an indoor animal handling zone where they can get more ’hands on’.


bucket & spade...

Those looking for the traditional ‘bucket and spade’ experience won’t be disappointed by the long beach at Sandown – a great spot for families. Also close to the High Street, so you won’t have to go far for those essential purchases plus the nearby pier has indoor golf, ten pin bowling and amusements, if the weather changes.

Dinosaur Isle


At Dinosaur Isle you'll encounter life size models of the Isle of Wight's 5 most famous dinosaur inhabitants. Whilst you're here you'll be able to see the Dinosaur Isle's volunteers preparing their latest finds, as well as taking control of the attraction's robotic dinosaur!
