Vintage buses at Epsom 2019

Ladies Day: 31st May & The Epsom Derby: 1st June

The two day, world famous Investec Epsom Derby festival dates back to 1780 and is surely one of the greatest race days and social occasions of the British summer calendar.

Truly an unmissable event, the festival is held on the first weekend of June at Epsom Downs Racecourse. For 2019, why not make your day really special by hiring an iconic vintage bus to take you to the races.

Ladies Day, which starts the festival on Friday 31st May, 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!

On both days, we arrange for the buses to be parked facing the rails within an exclusive enclosure, effectively providing you with your own private grandstand.

Your day at Epsom starts with the vintage bus collecting you and your guests - usually from Epsom railway station or another local address within about an 8 - 10 mile radius of the course.

Alternatively, you may wish to make your own travel arrangements, in which case the bus can be pre-parked inside the enclosure ready to act as an exclusive rendezvous and grandstand upon your arrival.

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. Epsom racecourse recommend buses be in position no later than 10:30am, so we'll arrange timings to suit.
