Overview
More
Hop on board a Purbeck Breezer to see dazzling white chalk cliffs, heathlands that stretch to the horizon, picturesque villages, a charming seaside resort that still has steam trains, and a romantic castle perched high on a hill. The open-top* route 50 gets you to some of the best beaches in England, not to mention it's a perfect way to enjoy spectacular cliff top walks without the need to retrace your steps. *Open top services cannot always be guaranteed due to operational reasons and inclement weather

In the summer you just can’t rely on picking up a bus. Hoardes if OAP’s pile onto the bus for their free travel meaning it’s quite difficult for actual paying customers to find a spot. Also expect queues at the other end coming back. Oh,...More

Awful experience. The bus was approximately 45 late from Studland to Swanage. For the £7.40 fair (2 singles), we should have got a cab!

The service runs all year but not necessarily with an open top bus as they put the tops back on in autumn.
