Doylestown, a Bucks County suburb of Philadelphia, was founded in 1662 when Irish immigrant Edward Doyle received a land grant from William Penn. Filled with historic landmarks that rival many large cities, Doylestown also boasts a lively downtown. Known for its bustling main street, quaint shops, and excellent restaurants, the town was named 2017's "Best Fun Suburban Town" by Philadelphia Magazine.

How to get there

Ride the Lansdale/Doylestown Line to Doylestown Station. Bus Route 55 also goes to Doylestown.


Regional Rail Zone 4: 

A one-way ticket purchased from a conductor is $8.00 on both weekdays and $7.00 on weekends. If you buy your ticket from a SEPTA sales office beforehand, the fare is $6.75 on weekdays and $5.25 on weekends.


One-way fare is $2.50 cash. You must have exact change if paying the cashier. The cashier cannot make change. Quick Trips are available from the Fare Kiosks located at all Broad Street and Market-Frankford Line stations. The kiosks accept credit/debit cards and cash [no exact change needed!]. Note, a Quick Trip is a one-way ticket, good for 24 hours. It can only be used at the station from which it is purchased.

Your best bet is a SEPTA Key Card. Like a Quick Trip, it is also available from the Fare Kiosks but unlike a Quick Trip, it is reloadable and reusable. The SEPTA Key Travel Wallet allows you to pay as you go and you'll receive a discount for each ride ($2.00 versus the $2.50 cash fare). You must load a minimum of $10 [which will get you 5 rides]. Funds in your Travel Wallet can only be used to pay for one (1) person. It cannot be tapped multiple times to pay for anyone traveling with you.  

Best part – your SEPTA Key gets you more than just a ride. Flash it for discounts on food, drink, museums, sports, shops and more. Click here for a full list of Partners.

Things To Do

Henry Mercer, the 19-century archeologist and industrialist built Doylestown three of its most striking landmarks: Fonthill Castle, a 44-room concrete palace; the Mercer Museum, a six-story repository for pieces that Mercer collected; and Moravian Pottery and Tile Works. All three attractions are worth a visit for history buffs and architecture admirers alike.

As far as food and drink, the options in Doylestown are endless. Doylestown Brewing Company offers craft beer brewed on-site, a cocktail bar, and upscale bar food. The brewery also happens to be a Perks Partner, so you get $1 off your beer when you flash your SEPTA Key or Pass! Other hotspots include Maxwell's on Main, Hickory Kitchen, and Peace Valley Winery

The downtown is also home to a number of independent specialty shops. From books at The Doylestown Bookshop, to soaps at Peace Valley Lavender Farm, to oils at Olve Oil Etcetera, Doylestown has all your shopping needs.
