Safeguarding Our Heritage!

We are very proud to be able to offer our beautifully restored 44 seater 1950’s heritage bus for  hire in and around the Guildford area.  It is the perfect complement to your special occasion, whether for a wedding, birthday party, corporate event, society outing or local Prom and it really enhances those all-important photographs!

Safeway services bus in original livery

In 1956 we purchased the brand new AEC Reliance 200 APB and it was used for local bus services until it was sold to Safeway Services in Somerset in 1961.  Having changed hands several times, we were thrilled to have the opportunity to repurchase it in 2002 with the intention of using it for special occasion private hire.

Lovingly restored to its original condition by our award winning Engineering Manager Brett Lambley and his team, we ensure that 200 APB is kept in tip top order.  Vehicles of this age do not have the power and top speeds of modern vehicles (let alone the heating and lighting systems!) so we treat her with kid gloves by limiting use to 50 mile round trips, avoiding motorways and dual-carriageways and not driving after dark or during the coldest winter months.

Wedding bus

You are welcome to make an appointment to visit our premises and see the heritage bus in the metal, meet some of our drivers and discuss your specific requirements with our staff. We can also arrange for the heritage bus to be decorated with your choice of ribbons and advise you on scenic routes and/or suitable photographic locations in the Guildford or wider Surrey area.
