Summer Links helps reduce car travel

26th April 2023

We're pleased to announce that Southern Vectis' seasonal bus service - Summer Links - which runs from Newport to Yarmouth and back via Tapnell Farm, is now up and running until 30 September 2023.

Whether you're visiting our attractions, the restaurant or staying on site and fancy taking the bus, the service runs daily and the bus stop can be found at the top of our drive, opposite the Aqua Park.

The service aims to encourage visitors to use their cars less and take up last year was "incredibly well received - with 7541 journeys recorded" according to Southern Vectis general manager, Richard Tyldsley.

‘In theory, that removed around 450 cars off the island’s roads - helping to ease congestion and improve air quality here. In fact, those journeys saved nearly 18 million CO2 - which is incredible."

“We’re excited to be welcoming people back on board the Summer Links service - which runs from Newport to Yarmouth - taking passengers right across the centre of the island’s beautiful rural landscape. It stops near to a number of popular attractions, including Tapnell Farm, Chessell Pottery and Calbourne Water Mill."
