"Our free 1950s vintage bus service will run again on Christmas Day 2021 between Roehampton and Putney Bridge Station, staffed by volunteers from 1950s Vintage Bus Hire.

There will be a bus every 30 minutes, leaving Roehampton Danebury Avenue at 09:30, 10:00 and every half hour until 15:00, and leaving Putney Bridge Station at 10:00, 10:30, and every half hour until 15:30.

We will serve all the usual route 430 stops between Roehampton and Putney Bridge. Please note our buses are not fully accessible, and children’s buggies will have to be folded up before boarding.

Our vintage buses are London Transport ‘RT’ types, the standard 1950s London double deck bus, of which over 7000 were made. Do come out and visit a pub, church, friends and family, enjoy a walk by the river or in Richmond Park, or just bring the children for a ride.

It’s Christmas Day and the journey’s on us! "
