Why go on a Christmas lights bus tour?
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?
The Ipswich Xmas Lights Tours run for about 2 ½ – 3 hours. The bus leaves at 6pm from the Ipswich City Council car park, 45 Roderick Street, Ipswich. Passengers are asked to be there by 5.45pm to make sure the tour leaves on time.
