Want to travel in style for your special occasion? Why not hire 'the Old Girl'.

The Old Girl, as she is affectionately known, is available to transport you and / or your guests to and from their accommodation to the wedding venue and on to the reception venue.

Tailored to meet your individual requirements, our service will ensure that everyone is in the right place at the right time with a touch of class that modern vehicles simply cannot provide and all your guests can enjoy that extra glass of champagne ! We'll even dress the bus with ribbons and bows for you.

The Old Girl was purchased new in 1939 and, unlike most vintage buses, this beautiful specimen has spent its entire life - that's almost 75 years - here on the Isle of Wight with Southern Vectis, its original owner.

The bus has 56 seats of which 30 are on the upper deck and 26 in the lower saloon.
