London Routemaster (Double Decker)

We have available the famous old traditional red London Routemaster bus (RM) double decker of the 60’s. Seating up to 72 passengers, these are ideal for taking guests to and from your wedding.

Our fleet of Routemaster buses has always proved popular for weddings. Seating up to 72 passengers, they are ideal for taking your guests from the wedding ceremony to second most important part of the day -the reception.

We usually decorate the buses with traditional ribbons and bow on the bonnet and, if required, balloons and streamers inside.

Destinations show “Just Married” or “Wedding Special” on the front. Other destinations can be displayed. Just ask to see if we have the destination you want.

Our old traditional red London Routemaster busses are also popular for sightseeing, films, television shows and corporate events special days out at the Kent & East Sussex Railway, the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Railway and the Bluebell Railway as well as other transport related events.

1954 Guy Special

The 1954 Guy Special bus has 26 seats -built for narrow lanes of London’s countryside. This bus is popular for weddings and trips in the country. It carries the maroon livery of the old Tillingbourne bus company.

This little bus has been with the same owner since its withdrawl form service in 1969 and is kindly made available for all to enjoy. Over the years it has been lovingly restored to passenger carrying condition.

A popular bus for smaller wedding groups, it is ideal for taking the bride and her entourage from home to the wedding venue then on to the reception.

Because of its small size, it can negotiate narrow country lanes where larger vehicles cannot go, so is also the choice for leisurely outings into the countryside to visit historic churches, pubs, steam railways or just lazy day out.

Please remember too, when booking our classic buses that they were built when traffic went at a more leisurely pase, so allow sufficient time when planning your journey.

Guys Special
Tim and I wanted to thank Roy for the assistance with our wedding on Saturday 6th July. We got married in the Hastings museum and Art Gallery and were pleased to see Roy waiting for us in the beautifully decorated 1954 guy Special when the ceremony finished. He then safely delivered all our excited guests to our wedding reception at my aunt’s farm at Peasmarsh with patience and good humour. All those riding on the bus were extremely impressed with his skill at negotiating the country lanes and undulating Sussex terrain.
Thank you all, the vintage bus was a wonderful treat for our nearest and dearest, and all those who got a ride, will treasure those memories for years to come.
Lydia and Tim
