Review of Whitby Steam Bus

Whitby Steam Bus
Ranked #4 of 17 Tours in Whitby

Reviewed 5 June 2012

Fun to experience such an old form of transport. The 'conductor' spends some time talking about the history of the bus before you start the tour. After that it gets a bit noisy. From time to time flames flare up in the driver's cabin which is quite exciting and can alarm passers by. I was amazed how well the driver negotiated the tight turns and corners.

We heard the bus before we saw it and decided to give it a go. I suggest everyone does. An excellent commentary, funny and informative and a spectacular ride around the town for about 20 minutes. I won't spoil the surprises in store for you by saying any more than the 'bottom tickling' as described by the 7 year old was entertaining in its own right.
Long may this delightful attraction and those who work on her survive.
Don't miss it.

'Elizabeth', Whitby's genuine steam bus is delightful. She may be long in the tooth, but she has real style. We just love to see her around the town, and her steam-whistle is unmistakeable. She fits in perfectlywith the North Yorks Moors Steam Railway that runs services from Whitby Station to Grosmont, Goathland, Levisham and Pickering. Elizabeth sets off from the bandstand by the harbour
