Quality vintage buses and luxury coaches for hire

Continuing with the traditional values of quality, safety and reliability, we have been painstakingly restoring our vintage buses and coaches to the highest standard since 1988. You too can now enjoy the pleasure of travelling on these very special vehicles.

Available each season from April to late September, we specialise in high quality vintage bus and coach hire for wedding & civil ceremonies, prom evenings, outings and corporate entertainment in Sussex, Surrey & Hampshire.
