London bus gets into top gear on Westbury’s roads

WESTBURY’S iconic White Horse made a guest appearance in the BBC motoring show Top Gear recently.  

In the episode aired on Sunday 4th August to celebrate all that is great about Britain’s motor industry, presenter James May tested the NBFL (New Bus for London) by driving it around the Wiltshire and Somerset countryside.

The bus was filmed driving under the shadow of the White Horse, while other local locations such as Longleat and Lacock were also featured.

The New Bus For London, to replace the famous Routemaster, costs £300,000.
