Welcome to North Somerset Coaches – Nailsea’s classic bus and coach specialists. We are a small private company established in 1969. Since 2013 we have concentrated on vintage and classic bus and coach hire and excursions. We offer a friendly and professional service using experienced drivers. Please get in touch and let us know how we can help provide a memorable day for your club, society, wedding, birthday, anniversary, product launch, publicity event, vintage event, village fair, school fete or other event!


Our collection of vintage and classic buses and coaches spans almost 50 years of the 20th Century – we have classic 1950s and 1960s buses and coaches, a 1970s single and double-decker bus, and a 1980’s dual-purpose bus. The vehicles spent most of their working lives in Bristol or nearby counties and generate much interest and rekindle nostalgic memories wherever they go. Four were also constructed in the city by the Bristol Commercial Vehicle company (of LS, MW, RE and VR types).

In 2016 we will be operating a small programme of day trips and outings – details will be announced in due course but you are welcome to get in touch any time and register your interest. Not only will we be offering traditional seaside and classic vehicle trips, but we hope to include classic cream tea outings and launch a Sunday Lunch Club!
