Estuary View Bus Service

Bus Services to Estuary View Medical Centre


We are grateful to Tesco Stores who have organised for their Free Bus Service to include Estuary View Medical Centre as one of the drop off and collection points. The bus takes a circular route from Tesco’s to Swalecliffe, Tankerton, Harbour Street, Borstal Hill, Estuary View Medical Centre and back to Tesco’s. This free bus service runs from Tuesday to Friday and the first bus leaves Harbour Street at 09.30 and then every half hour until 14.00. A full timetable is available at Estuary View Medical Centre and Tesco Stores.


Kent County Council have also agreed with the current operator of route 638 a variation in its route so that it serves Estuary View Medical Centre. The service will operate between Faversham, Hernhill, Dargate, Yorkletts, Seasalter, Estuary View Medical Centre, Grimshill and Whitstable in both directions every two hours between 09.30 and 16.00 on Monday to Friday and between 09.30 and 14.00 on a Saturday.
