Bus Travel in Whitley Bay

Escape to the seaside town of Whitley Bay and really get away from it all

Whitley Bay is just 10 miles from Newcastle, but worlds apart. Walk along the gorgeous sandy beach, see the spectacular lighthouse over on St Mary's Island, or stroll The Links, a green area that runs alongside the beach - perfect for a blast of fresh sea air.

Our bus routes run in and around Whitley Bay and connect the seaside town with Newcastle, Tynemouth, Blyth, Cramlington, North Shields and other local towns and villages. Why not let us drive while you relax and enjoy the coastal scenery by bus?
