Things to do this Feb half term image

With February half term just around the corner, why not plan your days out using the bus? With the £2 single fare cap in place, and up to two kids under five able to travel for free with a paying adult, you can't go wrong!

Here are a few ideas for days out by bus:

  • Our X7 route is returning to Paultons Park so you can get off the bus right outside the main entrance for all the fun over half term!
  • Head to the centre of Southampton to Walk the Walls of the old town and find out more about Southampton's heritage.
  • West Quay has plenty of shops, restaurants and places to keep the family entertained - why not try the cinema or arcade?
  • The Sea City Museum and Art Gallery have a range of workshops to attend across the holiday, great for a range of ages.

Why not take a bus trip to some of the green spaces near the city, ideal for picnics, dog walks or just getting some fresh air:

  • Take a stroll through Riverside Park, easily accessible on the Bluestar 16 or 20, a site located right beside the river Itchen.
  • Visit Royal Victoria Country Park in Netley on the Bluestar 15, a park with plenty of space, fantastic views across the water and a good range of facilities.
  • The city centre is host to many parks or Southampton Common is just a short ride away on the Bluestar 1, U1 and U2.

Plan your journey today, either online or on the Bluestar app where you can also buy tickets, view timetables and track our buses in live time.
