Real Ale Runabout 2020


As the Country is in lockdown and adhering to only travelling if it is essential, all Real Ale trips have been suspended until further notice.

Ipswich Buses and Ipswich CAMRA are once again working together to organise excursions out from Ipswich to pubs in other villages and towns that we don’t usually get to visit. It is a chance to visit some interesting pubs and socialise with a friendly group of fellow travellers. Once again we have arranged a full season of trips, that we hope that many of you will be able to enjoy.

This year, as last year, many of the trips are being held in the daytime, departing Ipswich Tower Ramparts bus station from stand RR at 11.45am and returning to the town centre about 8pm – 9pm.

For bookings and further details, visit our Enquiry Office at Tower Ramparts or call 0800 919390.

We need to know by the Monday before the date of the trip that there are 35 people booked – if not we reserve the right to cancel.


Camra members £9.00 (per person)
Adults: £10.00 (per person)

Over 18s only

You must be at least 18 years of age to go on one of these trips. To purchase a ticket for any trip just go to the Enquiry office at Tower Ramparts bus station. Some tickets may still be available on the day of the event, but this cannot be guaranteed. If insufficient tickets are sold in advance any of the advertised trips may be cancelled.

CAMRA membership required

A valid CAMRA membership needs to be presented at time of purchase and needs to still be valid on date of trip, the CAMRA membership card also needs to be shown with ticket at time of travel.
