Travelling beyond Imber with Imberbus

This email is to remind you that the Imberbus service to the lost village of Imber will be running on Saturday 17th August with more than 25 old and new Routemaster buses providing a frequent service from Warminster Station to Imber and other points on Salisbury Plain from 9.45am onwards.

Although for many people the opportunity to visit Imber and its Church is the main reason for attending our event, there are several other places to see and explore by Imberbus across Salisbury Plain on the Saturday and so we have added an extra page to our website called “Beyond Imber” to describe them – click HERE to take a look at it.

An unusual feature of this year’s Imberbus will be the opportunity to see inside New Zealand Farm Camp which this year is also the venue for the overnight Delaware Road Festival. This is likely to be the only opportunity when Imberbus passengers are able to explore this unusual site but as access is restricted, if you wish to do this you will need to book a ticket in advance – please see the Beyond Imber page for more details on how to do this.

Imberbus will also be the official public transport provider for The Delaware Road, so if you are attending the festival, please visit the Delaware Road page on our website to find out the transport arrangements for festival goers.

Fancy travelling to Warminster by Routemaster?

This year our friends from the London Bus Museum are organising a trip to our Saturday event from the Weybridge area of Surrey, using former Green Line Routemaster Coach RMC1461. They still have a few spaces available so if you would like to travel to Warminster in style, please email akpalmer@talktalk.net as soon as possible.

We may also be able to provide early morning transport to Warminster on one of our Imberbuses from Bath City Centre. However the final arrangements for this have still to be confirmed so if you would like to travel on this feeder bus, please email us at imberbus23a@gmail.com a few days beforehand.


Further details about this year’s Imberbus event can be found on our website at www.imberbus.wordpress.com, including maps, timetables, fares and details of how to get to Warminster Station. If this is your first visit to Imber, we strongly recommend that you take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions page, which provides important information on where you can and cannot go, where you can get something to eat and also the location of public toilets (which are few and far between on the Salisbury Plain!).

IMPORTANT – If you are planning on bringing a group of people to Warminster in a bus or coach, please contact us immediately as there are very few coach parking facilities available in Warminster.

We look forward to seeing you on 17th August.
