SHOWBUS international is the SHOWBUS flyby
on the A40 from Oxford to Beaconsfield for 2020
COVID restrictions have resulted in most bus rallies being cancelled this year. Social distancing is still likely to be necessary on September 27th and despite the vastness of our Herts Showground display area we will struggle to maintain the separations required, so we are moving the display to a large section of the A40 where enthusiats can spread themselves out along the entire 30 mile route.
From approximately 1000h buses will leave the M40 Services at Beaconsfield and Wheatley every couple of minutes. Buses will not congregate at either venue.
See the map for some of the recommended photo locations though much of the route is scenic with great backdrops for you pictures.
Northbound Buses will pause at Wycombe Retail Park for 5 minutes each. Across the road towards town is the local Kwik-Fit tyres, the former Thames Valley Bus Garage.
Another 5 minute stop will take place in High Wycombe High Street by the SHOWBUS TRADERS VILLAGE
High Wycombe Bus Station will be a hub in both directions with buses pulling on to stands for a few minutes. Photographers are recommended to view from adjoining streets, rather than the concourse, which can be dangerous with reversing buses.
Buses will also pause northbound opposite Thame Town Hall.
Southbound Buses 5 minute stops will take place at Thame Town Hall bus stop and again at the Kings Hotel, Stokenchurch, a one time refreshment stop for long distance coaches and at the bus stop in Beaconsfield Old Town.
The Traders Village will take place in High Wycombe historic Market Place, along the High Street and under the old Market Place Building and Guildhall.
We are also hoping to run doubledeck tours from Beaconsfield and Oxford Rail Stations so enthusiasts can participate in the flyby. Seats will need to be booked in advance. Details later.
We always like to hear from visitors to Showbus, and entrants too, and we would welcome suggestions as to what attractions you would like to see at the 2020 event and at 2021 when we hope to be back at the Hertfordshire County Showground. Contact us via the Contacts page
