Our Christmas Lights Tour is back this December and we cannot wait to welcome you on board! Get wrapped up ready for a unique festive experience for all the family aboard an open top bus.

Running on selected dates in December the festive tour leaves Newport Bus Station at 6.30pm. The 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 lasts approximately 90 minutes. Whilst we aren't able to stop for a cuppa on the route this year, we highly recommend bringing a flask of hot chocolate to keep you warm on a cold night!!

Joining us from the mainland? Hop aboard Route 1 from the Red Jet into Newport Bus station to meet with the Christmas Lights Bus. Coming over via the Wightlink Fastcat or Hovertravel? Ryde Bus Station is just a 5 minute walk away and you can jump on a bus to Newport. 

Wherever you're coming from, wrap up warm, grab a flask of hot chocolate and take your seat for the magical Christmas Lights Tour this December – doggies are welcome too!
