Our ’trippers’ have the choice of venue for the day with a three course meal and tea or coffee provided in a good quality establishment usually with disabled facilities.
All coaches provided are 49-53 seater executive coaches with toilet facilities. A coach (to each destination) has a wheelchair hoist for passengers who cannot manage the high steps on the coach. This ensures that even people with severe mobility problems can enjoy a day out.
