I first heard about it on Radio 4 this morning, it sounded just the kind of thing that the Boys (my five year old twins and I) would enjoy going to.
The iconic Routemaster Bus is 60 years old this month and to celebrate the fact it’s fanatical fans from around the world are gathered in Finsbury Park in North London for a gloriously English celebration of a legendary piece of transport heritage.
I had no idea what to expect, but what we found was simply grand! On the road through the park were lined up dozens and dozens of buses, simply that – a line of buses – yet there was something moving, amazing even about it, a celebration of enthusiasm, eccentric passion, engineering skills and something positive in our English temperament.
We wandered up the long line agog and content. It was a grand couple of hours, as these photos hopefully show?
