Ride the Beach Bus - to the Beach and Exbury!

Ride the Beach Bus to discover the hidden gems of the coast and countryside this summer from 25 July to 31 August, 2015 - and enjoy a 20% discount when you enter the Gardens, plus a free ice cream at nearby Lepe Country Park! Exbury and Lepe both share a coastline and the Beaulieu River, and catching the bus between the two attractions is a great way of seeing this very attractive part of the New Forest National Park.

The Beach Bus runs from Hythe Ferry to the Georgian market town of Lymington, and in addition to stops at Lepe and Exbury will also call in at the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu and Buckler’s Hard. Similar great discounts are available at these attractions. 

New Forest Tour passengers can also ride the Beach Bus for free with a valid Tour ticket, with easy connections at Lymington, Beaulieu and Hythe. For timetables and discounts go to

Tickets for the Beach Bus are great value, with a hop on and off all day ticket costing just £6 for an adult, £3 for a child or £15 for a group of up to five people.

The Beach Bus calls into Exbury at regular intervals every day between Sat 25 July and Mon 31 August 2015.

‘We recently had some friends from London to visit and were looking for something to entertain our young children for the day. We decided to give Exbury Gardens a try and I thought it was wonderful. We had Sunday lunch in the restaurant and the food was far superior to other local attractions so compliments to the chef. Walking through the gardens was beautiful with lots of little pathways to explore. I have lived in the Romsey area for many years and always thought Exbury was a little out of the way but it only took me 20 minutes from the motorway. We will definitely be a regular visitor from now on.’
