About the Company
Old London Bus is something we take a great deal of pleasure out of. The idea was first seeded in 1974 when I was offered an Ex London Transport RT complete with a spare fly wheel for £1000 by my uncle, who was an engineer at London Transport’s Stockwell garage. Being a student at the time £1000 would be like having £1,000,000 today! When the opportunity, later in life, to purchase not only one, but two of the same buses (now quite rare), a friend, who was also an engineering apprentice with London Transport on the same buses and I, persuaded me to start a bus company; enabling you to enjoy the experience we enjoyed as teenagers. Truth be told we love going out in the bus as much as our guests. The feedback we get is tremendous. We make sure it’s something you remember forever.
The bus, a driver and conductor; on the 56 seat AEC Regent III the driver and conductor are dressed in authentic London Transport uniforms of the period (when available), with a 'Gibson' ticket machine to give each of your guests an authentic ticket as a memory of you day. (This is not available on any other bus)
The following can be included at extra cost.
As well as the bus you also have many options available to you depending on the occasion.
A custom made front destination blind can be produced
Music equipment is available to play music you supply or from our own collection. Due to licencing restrictions we cannot provide music for corporate events.
Song sheets can be produced by us, so that your guests can sing along whether music is on board or not.
You may require other services such as a London Blue Badge Guide, wine or champagne for your guests. Please ask if there's anything we might be able to provide to help your trip more enjoyable.
