A summer of fun for the Arriva London Heritage Fleet


The Arriva London Heritage Fleet is the company’s way of maintaining a moving history of London.

As regular readers will know it is extensively used throughout the year for all manner of celebrations and events. Subsequently, we are always pleased to observe the many and varied ways in which our clients utilise the availability of the vehicles.

A recent note from one of our clients said the following:

“We hired an open top bus from the Arriva Heritage Fleet for our under 9 boys Priory Park football team from Cambridge St Neots.

We had a day out in London, and had an absolutely fantastic tour of London thanks to the driver.
He also let the boys and girls have a sit down in the cab and beep the horn. which the kids loved.
Attached are some pictures from our day out.”

The buses are obviously a great way to transport a large number of people in style, for a wedding or other celebration, as Chloe a recent bride attested:

“Dear Lee,
This is an email to say thank you for the bus you provided for my wedding on July 23rd. It was a beautiful addition to the day.
Thanks for all your help and support.

I have attached some photos in case you are curious.
You are welcome to use them on your website (they have been supplied by my wedding photographer, Ria Mishaal).”

If you feel the fleet could be of service to you now or in the future, for any of your family celebrations, corporate occasions or just to get out and about and have a great day, just click here and see what an amazing array of historic vehicles are available for you.

We look forward to being of service.
