Best Open-top rides

Spotted this and thought it worth sharing.

10 of the UK’s best open-top bus rides, Phoebe Taplin, The Guardian, Wed 21 Aug 2019 06.30 BST

Sadly, the author has omitted to note which services can be used with a concessionary pass.

The photo, displayed via a link to the Guardian, is of GoAhead, Morebus 1706 HJ16HTC on Route 50, Purbeck Breezer. I have ridden this service, one sunny day in April 2016, before this vehicle entered service, using my codger pass, returning via Swanage Railway to Corfe Castle and Breezer 40 to Poole.

On a more negative note, don't try to do this one at the moment.  The Sandbanks ferry is out of action - until at least September, I understand.  The service currently runs non-stop via Wareham and Corfe Castle
