The Hermitage bus was another attraction that took visitors on a tour of the gardens making its way to the Hermitage through the Pinetum. I currently don't have much information on the vintage bus except that it was an Austin. As you can see from the pictures, it was painted in the Bicton blue colour. I remember it being a very rickety ride but good fun and something else to look forward to once the ride on the railway had come and gone. I am guessing that this attraction was introduced after the gardens had been opened for a while and lasted until sometime during the 1980's.
