One of the UK’s most spectacular open top bus rides, combining the wild beauty of the Exmoor National Park and the seaside harbour of Lynmouth.

With the traditional seaside resort of Minehead at one end, and the traditional fishing village of Lymouth at the other end, the Exmoor Coaster links seaside towns across the dramatic moorland, traversing the insanely steep Porlock Hill as it climbs between coast and moor.

In the high summer the route continues up into the Victorian town of Lynton and through more spectacular scenery to Combe Martin, Watermouth Bay and Illfracombe.
