All aboard city’s time-travelling double-decker bus

History by Bus LogoTickets are still available on a free bus tour exploring Nottingham’s history on a Nottingham City Transport double-decker.

Robert Howard, from Nottinghamshire Local History Association, will lead the trip on a number 35 bus from Bulwell to Nottingham Central Library.

Mr Howard, 70, said: “The 35 takes us through Nottingham history from the outside in. Without the likes of Bulwell, Bilborough, Strelley, Wollaton, Lenton and its other Domesday settlements, Nottingham today might be no more than a small town with a ruined castle.”

The bus leaves Bulwell Bus station at 11am on Saturday May 24 and the trip will last around two hours.

Robert added: “My ambition is to see the 35 officially recognised as Nottingham’s first ‘heritage bus route’.”
