Overview
More
Hop on board a Purbeck Breezer to see dazzling white chalk cliffs, heathlands that stretch to the horizon, picturesque villages, a charming seaside resort that still has steam trains, and a romantic castle perched high on a hill. The open-top* route 50 gets you to some of the best beaches in England, not to mention it's a perfect way to enjoy spectacular cliff top walks without the need to retrace your steps. *Open top services cannot always be guaranteed due to operational reasons and inclement weather

Having used the service 50 multiple times and enjoyed the ride, we decided to give the 30 service a try this Summer as well. It was brilliant! It enabled us to visit the stunningly beautiful Lulworth Cove, walk over the cliff to Durdle Door, go...More

We used the bus (number 50) to get to Bournemouth but the trip itself was great.We went along narrow roads and across the chain ferry, then through Sands banks and on to Bournemouth. The view from the top of the bus was great.

In the summer you just can’t rely on picking up a bus. Hoardes if OAP’s pile onto the bus for their free travel meaning it’s quite difficult for actual paying customers to find a spot. Also expect queues at the other end coming back. Oh,...More

Hi Mark. An adult return is £6.90 and a child return is £4.50, totalling £18.30. You may find it more beneficial to get a group dayrider at £23 which allows you to hop on and off all day.
