The Routemaster bus is a design icon. It is as much a symbol of London as black cabs, Big Ben and the Changing of the Guard. It was the last bus to be built in London, for Londoners, and the last to have conductors as well as drivers. Some 50 years after its first appearance, around 820 examples of this famous London bus still exist in Britain, and examples can be found all over the world from Japan to the Falkland Islands.

And now there’s one in Martock!

Our bus, affectionately named Rodney, whose fleet number for all you bus enthusiasts is RM 191, was born in October 1960 and over the past 47 years has notched up hundreds of thousands of service miles with bus operators from all over the UK until it was withdrawn from service in London in 2005. It was then auctioned off and spent a number of months languishing behind a Bingo hall in Oxford before we acquired it in October 2006.
After months of restoration RM 191 is ready to work, providing the last word in memorable transport for you and your guests whatever the occasion. From the outside, our bus, with its shiny new paint job, looks as if it just left the Park Royal factory nearly half a century ago. Yet, step inside and the transformation is simply spectacular. Carpeted throughout, with tables fitted in both upper and lower saloons our Routemaster will transport you in style. From the hand formed solid bronze stair nosings to the soft burgundy wall trim, it’s a mobile club lounge. And with a state of the art on board sound system and wide screens on both decks, the party’s just about to start!
So, if you are planning a special event and are looking to make it a day to remember, then our big red London Bus is just what you are looking for. With a total seated capacity of 42 passengers of which 34 are seated at table you can be sure that your big day is going to be full of memorable moments.
