Portsmouth and Beyond

Take a trip back in time and learn about the history, humour and hardships of Portsmouth, the South Coasts premier city, all from the comfort of Alf, our big red vintage London Routemaster bus. Once on board, one of our experienced and fully qualified tourist guides will show you aspects of the city you never knew existed.

Hear how Portsmouth grew from a small, fishing village to an important naval town and finally into today's multi-million pound waterside hub of tourism, commerce and industry.
What better way to enjoy the sights and stories from days long gone, than from upstairs on Alf. Also, because he's a closed top bus, there are no insects to worry about in summer and wind and rain will present no problem to our intrepid explorers.
