Explore Medway by Open-Top Bus

Arriva is pleased to be running Medway Council's Explore Medway open-top guided tour bus that will take you between the local tourist attractions in Rochester, Chatham and Gillingham.

The 2017 tour will run daily between 24th July and 3rd September inclusive.

You can either take the complete tour lasting 45 minutes or hop off at some of the attractions along the way and carry on the tour on the next journey.

The bus will run hourly from 11am each day with departures on the hour until 4pm. The main starting point is the rear of Rochester Visitor Centre in Corporation Street (opposite Rochester Station) but you can start your journey at any of the stops on the route.

The recorded commentary will point out all the places of interest that you pass.

You'll learn about 1,000 years of the Medway Towns' history during the 45-minute tour.

An all-day ticket costs £3.75 for adults, £2.50 for concessions and £2.50 for children.

In the event of the open-top bus not being available, we reserve the right to substitute a normal double-deck bus but this will have no recorded commentary.
