Trips

 

 

We arrange Trips to local towns and places of interest and to events within easy travelling distance of Faringdon. Weekday afternoon trips plan to allow at least 2 hours at the chosen destination and can be as diverse as visiting a local garden centre, out of town shops or a major historic city. Weekend day trips plan to allow at least 5 hours at the chosen destination and again can be as diverse as visiting a national exhibition or a day at the seaside. Time spent at the destination depends largely on the distance travelled and the published return time.

 

Terms and Conditions:

  • None of the trip prices include entrance fees

  • Children 15 years and under travel at half price

  • The afternoon trips normally leave the Market Place at 1.15pm and allow 2 hours at the destination, returning home by 6.00pm latest. Please check times when purchasing tickets.

  • The all day trips normally leave the Market Place at 9.00am unless otherwise stated.  Please check times when purchasing tickets.

  • Folding wheelchairs can be accommodated but all passengers must be able to access the bus from the pavement and ascend one internal step to the otherwise flat floor.

  • Seat belts must be worn by all passengers.

  • All tickets are available from the Tourist Information Centre

  • For queries about the trips please call Tourist Information Centre or the FCB Trip Organiser, see Contacts for address and telephone number.

  • If YOU have suggestions where you would like to go in the afternoons or weekends please let us know and we will try to fit them in.
