Enjoy an unlimited day's bus travel 

Whether you fancy a day at the beach, a stumble through the past or shopping in Colchester, family fun in Clacton at the Pier and Pavilion, a ride on the Clacton Breeze open top bus, a wild trip to Colchester Zoo, or a maritime adventure in Harwich. 

Seasiders really is the best way for you to get out and about this summer.

With many great attractions, places, parks and sights spread out right across Essex, our comprehensive network of buses allows you to sit back, relax and let us take care of the driving, whilst you enjoy your summer stay-cation. 

Our buses run up to every:

  • 15 minutes between Walton on the Naze and Clacton

  • 30 minutes between Colchester from Halsted

  • 60 minutes between West Mersea and Colchester

  • 60 minutes between Harwich and Clacton

  • 60 minutes between Colchester and Tollesbury.

What’s more, your ticket allows you to hop on and off our buses throughout your journey so you can make the most of your day out.
