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 16 years and under travel at reduced 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.
