    Don't think I have ever tried, but planning onto this evening...is it allowed? I know it is on a train...well I have done it a few times and no one has said anything.

    In public busses in London (and possibly all of England) it is not allowed. I'm almost sure you are not allowed to have open or visible alcohol bottles even if you are not drinking in London busses.

    Probably, if you haven't heard otherwise - ask a local cop.

    No..it is British tradition to be a nuisance on public transport.

    If you really want to consume alcohol then just do it discretely in a sports or soft drinks bottle. If it's a spirit and mixer, then no one will notice, although the smell of beer can be quite strong.

    I think on the buses where I live it says no alcohol on them. I'm not sure if it's Stagecoach's rules or the law, but either way you're probably risking getting kicked off if the driver notices.
    However, nondescript bottle + top deck = probably going to get away with it.

    Looks like I am going to have to put the bottle of beer inside my jacket pocket and sneak it on...also doubles up as a weapon which is always needed on public transport.

    My friends and I were drinking alcohol on the train and bus on new years. Not sure if it is allowed but oh well.

    I live in Birmingham, and I'm pretty sure it's not allowed, although I have seen people doing it loads and I've never seen anyone getting told off. You'll probably be fine as long as you sit upstairs or whatever, as long as you're not causing a lot of trouble the crappy Travel West Midlands drivers don't give a sh*t.

    Wouldn't do it with beer, but I've done it in the past with vodka, etc, put in bottles with coke in it.

    Its not REALLY within the law, but as long as you don't bring attention to yourself, etc, and its not in the original bottle which states it is obviously an alcoholic beverage, then you should be okay.

    Why is it illegal for buses if you can get it on a train? It just makes no sense. Last year on the way home from Aberystwyth, there were some people who were enjoying a couple of Carlsbergs (Revolting drink btw) at half 11 on a Friday morning.

    Even if it is technically illegal, most people will turn a blind eye as long as you behave yourself. If you act irresponsibly or loud and obnoxious, don't be surprised if people report you. It's all about being considerate of the others around you, as it's a public service.
