Vintage Bus Hire offer a variety of vintage and classic buses from years gone by. Having operated old buses for over 20 years, the staff at Vintage Bus Hire have a wealth of experience providing buses for weddings, films, private hire, corporate events and special promotions.
We have available the famous London Routemaster (RM) double decker of the 60’s. Seating up to 72 passengers, these are ideal for taking guests to and from your wedding. Our Routemaster has been have been externally renovated and repainted in the traditional London Bus Red, while the interior has been fitted with new seats and repainted to a high standard.
Following a thorough rebuild and refurbishment, our 1954 guy "Special" single deck bus is now available for hire for smaller groups. Seating 26 passengers, this bus is ideal for journeys down country lanes where double deckers can't go! This bus has been in the family since 1969 and is proving very popular for weddings. Early booking is advised!!
Please note we are unable to accept any pushchairs, baby buggies or prams on our buses; there is simply nowhere to safely stow them. Each folded buggy takes up the space of 2 adult passenger seats.
Disabled persons are welcome on our buses, but must be able to climb the entrance steps into the bus. Folded wheelchairs can be carried, but again, these take up the space of 2 adult passenger seats.

We offer a comprehensive restoration and repair service for heritage buses, specialising in the former London Routemaster buses. We have a range of used, refurbished and new stock of popular items.
Long-term Restoration projects include full restoration of our 1952 Airport Coach MLL738. We hope to have this ready for service in mid 2014 following a lengthy rebuild. This unique coach will be the only one certified for passenger carrying.
We have just been awarded the contract to rebuild the former Chatham and District 1939 Bristol double decker GKE68. This project has recently been awarded Heritage lottery funding to complete the restoration. We are proud to have been chosen to complete this project. http://www.itv.com/news/meridian/story/2013-09-09/heritage-bus-to-be-restored/
