Transfer Coach Details

If you would like to book a seat on one of our FREE transfer coaches to Excursions, please see the detailed pick up and set down times for each route below. A Blue Badge Guide will accompany every coach to assist the driver. 

Your seat on the transfer coach is simply booked when you register for your free entry to Excursions. Your print at home badge for the show will then have the coach transfer details on it. Do not worry if you are unable to print your badge at home or forget to bring it on the day - each coach driver will have a list of people boarding at each pick up point on their route. 

If you wish  to cancel your seat please log back in to the registration system and simply remove your seat allocation. This releases it back in to the system so that it may be booked by someone else. If it is less than 48 hours before Excursions takes place please do not worry about contacting us. Please be aware places are offered on a first come, first served basis.
