IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR PASSENGERS: If you are boarding the Vintage Bus in Belgrave Road, Torquay please ensure you board the official bus with the National Trust emblem. This service is the direct door to door service for Greenway House and registered as such ‘AC1′. Our company is having great problems with the owner of the Newsagent in Belgrave Road whom is agent for our competitors by placing passengers on the incorrect modern bus thus causing them to have a 1.5 mile walk to Greenway. Many passengers have been coerced into this and been very disappointed. We advise that you go to the Tourist Information Office in Belgrave Road opposite the Derwent and Victoria Hotel’s for the correct unbiased information, where you will be looked after and can also buy your tickets. Please note however that we suggest you buy tickets online to avoid disappointment. Tickets are also available on the bus.
