About us

WHITE’S NOSTALGIC COACHES has been established by Nick White, classic vehicle and British nostalgia enthusiast, with the sole intention of offering a friendly coach hire service designed to provide an added nostalgic experience to any special occasion or day trip. 

Why not step aboard our classic Ford Duple Empress coach manufactured at the Blackpool Duple works in 1966, the year England won the World Cup and enjoy being taken back to a time when the pace of life was a little slower and our lives were almost certainly less complex. 

“Grace” as she was named by previous owners Barry Smith and his wife, can seat 37 people (8 seats are set to tables and therefore please be aware that 4 of these seats face rearward).  

The panoramic roof line windows create a very open and light feel to the interior and we are sure you will enjoy the retro style interior with rope net luggage racking and those orange plastic roof windows that some may recall from school trips of yesteryear, when your face glows orange in the sun.
