Ipswich Christmas Lights Bus Tours 2023

One of the real treats at Christmas time is seeing all the wonderful Christmas lights displays on houses all over the city. If you’re in and around Ipswich City, you can see the best displays on a bus tour. We’ve gathered all the information you need to know about the Ipswich Christmas Lights Bus Tours.

Why go on a Christmas lights bus tour in 2023?

The displays are dazzling. There’s so much to see and take in, and there’s a kind of magic to viewing Christmas lights. But if you have to drive from one to the next, avoiding other cars and pedestrians, finding car parks and figuring out the directions, it dulls the sparkle a little.

The Christmas Lights Bus Tours remove those hassles, letting you be comfortably chauffeured from one magic display to the next in the comfort of an air-conditioned coach. And you get to share in the delight with others. Is there anything quite like the collective “wow” when a group of people see something amazing for the first time?

When and where do the tours operate in 2023?

The Ipswich Christmas Lights Tour includes commentary from a friendly guide, light supper, live entertainment. Guests are required to meet next to the Tulmur stage in the Nicholas Street Precinct at 5.45pm. and the bus will also return to this location at the conclusion of the tour.
