Christmas Lights Tour

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

Running nightly between 7th and 23rd December @1830, 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 lasts approximately three hours with a couple of festive stop offs along the way – including Rectory Mansion in Brading, where you can enjoy mince pies, hot drinks and other Christmassy surprises!

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

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.

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!
