Vintage buses for Epsom Derby 2018

The world famous Epsom Derby dates back to 1780 and is surely one of the most iconic sporting and social events of the calendar. The two-day Derby Festival, held on the first weekend of June at Epsom Downs Racecourse, is truly an unmissable event.

For the 2018 season, why not make your day really special by hiring a vintage bus to take you to the races. Thoroughly recommended!!

Ladies Day, which starts the festival on Friday 1st June, is certainly the place to dress up and be seen. A pleasantly relaxed meet and a refreshing alternative to the crowds Saturday’s event draws. An absolutely magnificent, value for money day out!

The Derby on Saturday has to be the show-piece of the flat racing season. Horses and riders pushed to their limit and a superb atmosphere. Fantastic!

Epsom Derby festival Your day at Epsom starts with the vintage bus collecting you and your guests - usually from an address within Surrey or possibly South London. Alternatively, the vehicle can meet you at Epsom railway station if you are travelling from farther afield.

Epsom racecourse recommend buses be in position no later than 10:30am and we arrange, on your behalf, parking facing the rails within an exclusive enclosure.

Should you wish to make your own travel arrangements, the bus can instead be made available within the enclosure as an exclusive rendezvous and grandstand for your guests.

By all means bring picnic hampers with you, or perhaps you may wish to arrange with us for first class experienced caterers to greet you on the course.

And after your memorable day, departure follows the last race once authorised by Epsom staff, usually after 6pm.

Please take a look at our fine selection of double deck buses, all dating from the 1960s.
