We are delighted to offer our buses for school visits, we love taking them to local schools simply for children to sit on and enjoy, or we can take the children for a short trip around the local area.

Our knowledgeable driver can also do a short interactive talk about the history of the bus and explain the differences between old and new buses. Each talk is tailored to the age of the children and will include any project or theme the children have been doing in class.

Each child (and teachers) will also be given a souvenir ticket from our genuine 1960s conductor's ticket machine.

Our charges for educational bookings are:

School Visit - from £200.00
School Visit with a Ride - from £300.00

Here are some of the wonderful testimonials and cards we have received from children and teachers from previous school visits…

“A huge thank you for making the children's day!! My Reception had an absolute ball riding the "real" Naughty Bus!! David and Ashley were fantastic! What a wonderful end to a theme!! Thank you”.

Katrina Alice, Broughton Heath Primary School.

“Thank you so much for helping make Wednesday's trip so special for the children. They have talked about it all week! I thought you pitched your little chat just right and even the parents and staff were talking about what they'd learnt and how much they enjoyed it! I did too - thank you. It was just fab!”

Susanne Wearden, Ecclestone Primary School.

"A very big thank you for bringing your wonderful and immaculate old Routemaster bus to Meryfield for our 'London' topic. David gave an excellent talk full of interesting and fun facts about the differences between the old buses and the new ones- just perfect for year 2. It was hard to say who was more excited the children or staff and everyone talked about it for the rest of the day! The highlight for many was receiving a souvenir ticket from Ashley's 1960s conductor’s ticket machine which many of our children have treasured as a reminder of a very special day”.

Alex Gage, Deputy Head, Meryfield Primary School.
