Popular M25 bus tour extended

Coach tours will take in the sites of the M25

A coach tour of the M25 has proved to be so popular that three additional dates have been scheduled.

The Brightonand Hove Bus company has been deluged by people wanted to go on the four and half hour trip around the London orbital, they have quadrupled the amount of spaces on offer.

Ian Miller, the coach operations manager, said: “We originally had one in October, but due to the press interest, we sold out quickly and now we have four dates, with the first being in March.”

The idea for a coach tour of the M25 came about as bosses thought up a touring schedule for 2012.

Mr Miller added: “We wanted to think of something quirky and then someone in the office mentioned a tour of the M25.

“I think it was meant tongue-in-cheek, and no one expected it see the light of day, but thanks to media attention, it’s proven to be really popular.

“I’ve heard of the story even being covered inNew York and the Sydney Morning Herald.”

Mr Miller claims that, while a coach trip on the motorway may sound like the idea of hell for a lot of people, there is actually a lot to keep passengers entertained.

He said: “When the M25 was laid, it went through a lot of countryside inSurrey, Berkshire, Kent and Essex.

“We also go past Heathrow and Cobham services, which is the most ecological in the UK.

“We have done a lot of research to come up with interesting facts and figures, because when we first launched the idea, we didn’t have anything because we doubted it would prove to be this popular.”
