I got my bus pass today. I thought it would be inteeresting to see where I could go practically in a day? When we were travelling to Oxfordshire last week, we passed Highclere Castle, the home (to me, and I suspect several million other people) of Downton Abbey. Can I get to Highclere on the bus?
The answer to the question is yes. There is a bus, the Number 7 from Andover goes past Highclere, but it looks as though there might be a bit of a walk to get to the castle itself. from Andover, it looks like I need to get to Whoitechurch, the number 86, Whitechurch to Winchester on the 76, from there I’ve kind of almost given up. Google Maps tells me that it takes over 11 hours to travel in one direction. Is that right?
Shorter journeys perhaps? But where to go?
