Proms and "end-of-year" parties

There's no escaping it... proms are a BIG DEAL these days! Hire one of our buses and your son or daughter could arrive in style to their much anticipated party. Our buses mean that friends can travel together and start the party early. Choose from one of our modern open or closed top double deckers, or one of our classic vehicles. With our buses large capacity it's a cost effective solution... and a great photo opportunity! Getting there could well be as much fun as the party itself!
