Once a year, a fleet of old London buses are allowed into military lands to take trips to an empty village where no one lives. It is of course, therefore hugely popular.
This is ImberBus.
You can look at it as a chance to ride on buses to an abandoned village, but that is almost to belittle the totality of the day out – riding through an empty landscape where trees have replaced tower blocks, where burnt out tanks are more common than Uber taxis, where a church in the middle of nowhere will serve you a cup of tea.
It’s a surreal experience.
This year, the ImberBus team plan to have at least 20 old and new Routemaster buses to ride on as you travel past burnt out tanks and warnings not to leave the road because of unexploded bombs.
There’s an all-day ticket for £10 with up to 3 children for £1 each — or you can buy single fares. Just turn up and pay on the bus – cash only.
The full details are here.
