The Poetry Bus

To hail the reopening of Dove Cottage, William Wordsworth’s home during his ‘golden decade’ (1799–1808), and as part of a yearlong celebration of the poet’s 250th birthday Wordsworth Grasmere, Stagecoach and Aerial bring poetry to the people via the 555 and 599.
 
Bus travellers between Windermere and Keswick may be a little surprised when poets Kim Moore and Clare Shaw climb aboard the 555 and 599 buses and perform their own work as well as sharing some of Wordsworth’s words with passengers as they journey through the landscape that inspired some of Wordsworth’s greatest poetry – and continues to inspire poets today!
 
The poets will be performing on the following services:
 

  • 555 Stagecoach Bus northbound from Grasmere 9.45am to arrive in Keswick 10.14am
  • 599 Stagecoach Bus northbound from Windermere 10.39am to arrive in Grasmere at 11.13am
  • 555 Stagecoach Bus southbound from Keswick 12.30pm to arrive in Windermere at 1.33pm
  • 555 Stagecoach Bus northbound from Grasmere 12.45 to arrive in Keswick 1.14pm
  • 555 Stagecoach Bus southbound from Keswick 2.30pm to arrive in Windermere at 3.33pm
  • 599 Stagecoach Bus northbound from Windermere at 2.39pm arrive in Grasmere at 3.13pm
