Our guests were thrilled to be riding an original 1960s London bus!

Dear Mark

I’m writing to let you know that the bus was a massive hit at my son’s wedding on Saturday. We had quite a few visitors from the US, Canada, Poland, South Wales and Scotland and they were all thrilled to be riding an original 1960s London bus! Many of them said it was a highlight of the day.

Thank you for arriving so punctually and for the helpfulness of the driver and conductor. Once the photos have all arrived I will send you some for your publicity material.

Many thanks and best wishes,


What a wonderful day we had at the weekend

I am writing to say what a wonderful day we had at the weekend.
The look of suprise on Mum’s face was something we will all never forget.
Mark and Leonor were absolutely brilliant, friendly, welcoming, professional and fun.
Please pass on our huge thanks to them.  The bus was in gleaming and in lovely condition.
The whole group of family and friends had a ball on the bus and at the beach, we were blessed with the weather too!
Thanks again,
Milly Waudby
