Wonderzoo Bus and more

Its always nice to find a new ticket which offers cheaper travel, even when as in this case its just for this weekend:

Plymouth Citybus Art Weekender Ticket

In partnership with Plymouth Art Weekender we are offering discounted tickets that cover your travel for the whole weekend.

Tickets are valid from 12 noon on Friday 22 September until midnight on Sunday 24 September, so you just need one ticket for bus travel covering the whole weekend.

Individual tickets are priced at £5, with a family ticket (up to two adults and three children) for just £10.

They will be available across the whole weekend to purchase from the bus driver. Just as for an art weekender ticket.


I must admit I had never heard of the Art Weekender so..

Plymouth Art Weekender is an ambitious three day event that takes place annually across the city. The third Weekender will be held on 22nd- 24th September 2017. The Weekender confidently celebrates Plymouth, its people and the visual arts, promoting the city as an exciting contemporary art destination. The Weekender showcases a wide and diverse range of activity for all ages including a large array of events and exhibitions throughout the city by local, national and international artists.

There are lots of different events over the weekend but this caught my eye and could be worth  ago if you want to combine a bus trip with art!
