Classic 1964 open-top bus seating 69

Bus number 406 is a Leyland PD3, built in 1964 as one of a batch of 25 convertible open/closed-top vehicles - the detachable roof making this is a particularly unusual bus. In days gone by, the roof would be removed for the summer season and refitted for winter operation. We operate 406 permanently open-top as we have other traditional 1960s closed-top buses available.

406 is the ideal vehicle for an exciting and unique outing and a firm favourite for shorter wedding journeys, a trip to the races, corporate entertainment or a wonderful birthday treat! The bus can carry 69 passengers in total, with 39 seats on the top deck and 30 on the lower. May we suggest you consider limiting the size of your party to 30 people (lower deck capacity) to allow for any unexpected showers.

The bus is usually available for hire each summer season between the beginning of May and the end of September. As you might imagine, this vehicle is very popular so please don't hesitate to get in touch at the earliest opportunity. 'Hats off to the sun!'
