Please note, due to the coronavirus pandemic the decision has been made to cancel the Local Haunts bus tours for 2020. Risk assessments will be undertaken in due course to get 'Alf' back on the road in 2021.
Take a trip back in time and learn about the history, humour and hardships of Portsmouth, all from the comfort of Alf, the big, red, vintage London Routemaster bus. Once on board, one of the experienced and fully qualified tourist guides will show you aspects of the city you never knew existed.
Hear how Portsmouth grew from a small, fishing village to an important naval town and finally into today's multi-million pound waterside hub of tourism, commerce and industry. What better way to enjoy the sights and stories from days long gone, than from upstairs on Alf? Also, because he's a closed top bus, there are no insects to worry about in summer and wind and rain will present no problem to intrepid explorers.
The guided bus tours commence on Sunday 3rd June and run until Sunday 30th September, 2018. Tours take place Thursdays and Sundays at 2pm - whatever the weather!
