Private Charter

Our coach fleet features passenger capacities from 7 up to 53 seats and we can also draw from our wider group to provide larger seating capacities when required.

Each of our iconic coaches in the familiar red and cream livery are named after winners of the Epsom Derby, the most famous horse racing event in the world, which like Epsom Coaches is an intrinsic part of the history of Epsom and continues to go from strength to strength.

Epsom Coaches have been providing private charter for clients since 1920, starting out with a 14 seat Model T Ford. Today’s coaches are a pleasure to travel in, with a climate controlled interior ambience that is comparable with the finest limousines.

Specialist Hire

Epsom Coaches famous red and cream coach fleet is just the tip of the iceberg, as the best known part of our diverse and high quality business. However, the company operates in many fields of passenger transport, including NHS staff travel, provision of express coach services, rail replacement and staff transport for a wide range of private and government bodies. These requirements may be long or short term, but all share the common need for a bespoke solution, which Epsom Coaches are able to provide.

Safety, Quality and the Environment

Bus and coach travel is the safest form of land travel, but we go that extra mile to ensure that travelling with us is safer still. We are fully licenced by the UK Department for Transport and have been in continuity since licencing commenced in 1933. In fact we are certified as having held an operating licence longer than any other operator in the London and South Eastern region. With that experience comes a total commitment to safety, from our premises management to the selection, care, maintenance and driving of our fleet. You can be assured that safety is our no 1 priority.

The quality of our operation is independently checked by audit as a condition of our membership of CoachMarque and the Guild of British Coach Operators. Both organisations require the highest standards and 100% audit compliance against a wide range of safety and quality parameters. We are also leading members of the Confederation of Passenger Transport, The Coach Tourism Council, Busk Benchmark and the Global Passenger Network.

As a multi-award-winner for our contribution to reducing the impact of our operation on the environment, we have led the way in the practical implementation of a green agenda. From use of biofuel, water recycling and low energy buildings, combined with the benefits of the latest vehicle emission technology.
