An invitation to step back in time

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. After successfully obtaining an operating licence in 1999, you too can now enjoy the pleasure of travelling on these very special vehicles.

Available each season from the beginning of April to the end of October, we specialise in high quality vintage bus and coach hire for wedding & civil ceremonies, prom evenings, group outings and corporate entertainment in East and West Sussex, Surrey & Hampshire.

Adding a touch of class to any special occasion, our vintage vehicle collection comprises three different types to suit your individual requirements: for instance, why not try our delightful touring coaches - the earliest from 1961 - each with 28 luxury armchair seats.

Or maybe a ride on a 1964 open-top double-deck bus for the adventurous – hats off to the sun! Our classic 69 seat, 1960s closed-top double-deck buses are real gems and should certainly have plenty of room for all your guests. Simply follow the links for full details.
