Private Coach Hire

Our coach is available for advanced hire for any special event including Weddings, Birthday and family parties, corporate events and all special occasions, whether it be for a few hours, a day trip or an overnight excursion.

Please note that as our coach was manufactured in 1966, when traffic moved a little slower and British Motorways had only just been introduced, we suggest that day trips should be limited to a travel distance to the venue or destination of around 60 mile radius of Sheffield. This will ensure you have enough time to enjoy your trip and provide for a comfortable excursion. For overnight tours a greater distance is fine.

Unfortunately, our coach is unsuitable for wheelchair users and it should be noted that there are 3 steps up into the coach.
Please call to discuss your particular requirements and we will do what we can to help.

Hire our coach for your special occasion!
