  MDOG Free Bus Services

We intend to operate free bus services between Alton railway station and the Jane Austen’s House Museum at Chawton in 2017.
 

Days out with the Chawton Circular

For seven Sundays this summer we will be running free vintages bus services from Alton Station to Chawton Village: 7th May, 4th June, 2nd July, 6th August, 3rd September and 1st October.

This service provides passengers with an opportunity to visit Chawton village where the main attraction is Jane Austen’s House: www.jane-austens-house-museum.org.uk

Chawton also has the Greyfriar public house, providing lunches: www.greyfriar-chawton.co.uk  and Cassandra’s Cup - a bistro: www.cassandrascup.co.uk

There is also a children’s playground in the village.

Alton has many shops and public houses open on Sundays and has the Mid Hants Railway, a heritage steam locomotive service to Medstead and Four Marks, Ropley and Arlesford: www.watercressline.co.uk

There are several vintage bus journeys from Alton to Chawton, providing you with an opportunity to stay over and get a later bus back. See the timetable below.
