Despite cuts in rural services there are still many bus routes that pass through great countryside and interesting towns and can form the basis of brilliant day trips and holidays. And let’s face it, buses could well be the best way of travelling around the country this month, given restricted rail services. For example, Guardian Travel’s own Phoebe Taplin uses buses as the springboard for her walking odysseys and often the ride is a highlight of the trip itself. And back in May, Vic O’Sullivan treated us to a description of his favourite bus trip in Ireland.
Please share details of favourite bus routes and trips you’ve made in the UK using the bus network.
If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.
Keep your tip to about 100 words
The best tip of the week, chosen by Tom Hall of Lonely Planet, will win a £200 voucher to stay at a Sawday’s property – the company has more than 3,000 in the UK and Europe. The best tips will appear on the Guardian Travel website, and maybe in the paper, too.
We’re sorry, but for legal reasons you must be a UK resident to enter this competition.
The competition closes on 13 December at 9am
