Our bus was the 15th rebuilt by Marshall’ s, from an original 2600 buses produced. Completely refurbished by Ken Livingstone in 2001, at a said cost of £ 50,000, the bus is environmentally friendly.
The traditional Open Back is great, and we have now fitted very powerful heaters to the lower saloon (does not alter the buses appearance in any way), ensuring absolute comfort at all times and no chance of a cold bus even on the chilliest days and nights.
Our buses attract Major attention at any venue. Cameras appear from nowhere when the bus stops, and even while its moving people grab for their phones to snap you. There are precious few left in the country and even less available for public occasions.

I just wanted to say a BIG thank you to you both for a fantastic start to our wedding day! We had so many people say how much they enjoyed the ride on your bus and I was happy to see so many smiling faces getting on and off! I think the adults enjoyed it as much as the kids. I just wanted to send a quick email to say a huge thank you for your hard work on the day of our wedding. We all enjoyed the bus and it made quite a talking point! I've attached a couple of photos and I'll continue to recommend you to all of my friends and family. ;Just had to email you and say THANK YOU for the use of your bus, we have had the most amazing day, Please extend our thanks to the driver and conductor, they were both lovely. My husband is still in shock on having such a great surprise day out and everyone of our group said what fun it was to ride on the bus. Thank you again.
Thousands have witnessed the end of these wonderful buses in London, but this one is back for you to enjoy in the West Country.
