Private Hires

For that special occasion such as a birthday or club outing why not book a vintage bus?

We are licensed as a bus operator so that our visitors can enjoy rides on some of our exhibits. This means that we can hire out the exhibits licensed as PSVs for appropriate trips. Your bus would be supplied with both driver and conductor and is ideal for that special event.

Remember, however, that they are restored museum exhibits so they are not suitable for booze tours or late evening jollies! Usually, we only undertake hires within 20 miles radius of the museum and we are unable to take bookings for hires outside our normal opening period of April to October
