Bus World

Bus World, created by Lee Wilkins in 1996, caters for enthusiasts who enjoy travelling by bus. Here you’ll find news reports, artwork, photos, reviews, classic routes, and more. Although based in Hampshire, our region covers the whole of southern England.

All the latest news reports; there’s also an archive of earlier news stories, which currently date back to 2020. At some point we hope to be able to make our full archive available once more.

Here we feature local paintings/​drawings that depict our region. We include brief summaries and ‘points of interest’ about the work shown; there are also mini-bios of the artists.

We take the bus to visit and review attractions across our region; so if you’re looking for a day out by bus, we can help you out. Whether it’s a museum, art gallery, country park, zoo, cathedral, or farm, you’ll find there’s something for everyone here.

Here we feature some top bus routes. With service and operator information, and ‘Did you know?’ points of interest, we take a look at some past — and present — classics.

Past Travels has a choice selection of photos and comments from our founder and editor in chief, Lee Wilkins. All photos are exclusive to Bus World (South).
