This gives a 'taster' for our Open Day Events (the next is on Sunday, 5 November) - when many more of our vehicles - cars as well as buses - will be on the road, along with a display of visiting vehicles, sales stands, and a number of 'guest' buses and coaches also in service.

Heritage Open Days are supported by: The Heritage Trust of Lincolnshire and English Heritage


Please be aware that our historic vehicles were not designed with modern standards of access in mind, and do not have space for unfolded wheelchairs (or baby buggies / push-chairs), but our conductors will offer what help they can.

We will make every effort to maintain the published timetable, but reserve the right to alter or curtail the service, which depends on the availability of volunteer bus crews and historic vehicles.

The seating capacity on each bus is fixed - we will do everything possible to run a duplicate bus in the event of a full load, but passengers may have to wait for a later bus if no seats are available.

We regret that dogs (other than registered assistance dogs) are no longer allowed on the Society's buses or on Museum premises.

VV8934Also, the Museum's 1945 Northampton Corporation Daimler bus will be back home and in the company of some other classic Northampton buses on Saturday 9 September as part of the similar event in Northampton - more information here.
