Great Dorset Steam Fair 2018 - 23rd to 27th August

To help you get there from the Salisbury area we are running a dedicated service - the X20.

The X20 will run from Salisbury Railway Station, through the city centre, via Coombe Bissett and Tarrant Hinton to the Great Dorset Steam Fair bus stop situated inside the event site. 

Please note: during the Steam Fair, the X20 will alter the normal 20 timetable and some services will depart earlier as a result.

We will also be running a special route, the SF1 shuttle, which will run daily from 23 - 27 August from Blandford to the Steam Fair site. The first bus will leave Blandford at 0755.
