Getting Around By Bus

We have an excellent bus service on the Isle of Wight run by Southern Vectis - a weeks freedom ticket costing around £24. There is a bus stop very close to us in Shanklin Old Village which is on the main bus route 2 & 3. The Special Island Coaster bus also stops in the Village and goes right round the coast to Yarmouth and Alum Bay.
