When it comes to a niche offering, Brighton Regency Routemaster is up there with the best in town. They provide an entirely packaged experience, it’s a tasty way to boff up on local history and it offers fantastic memory making opportunities for the whole family.   

The bus boss – Brighton Regency Routemaster

The bus itself is one of only a few remaining RML 2333 Routemasters. There were originally 300 of them introduced to London in 1965 and this model was finally withdrawn from service in October 2005. In 2017 the bus was bought and repurposed, she underwent a full engine upgrade, received a paint job, had all interiors restored and transformed into a full equipt fine dining tour bus. Peter, the driver, is one of two remaining qualified drivers in the UK. He drove these buses back in the 70s and left his retirement to take these tours. Brighton Regency Routemaster starts the journey with a whistle-spot tour of the bus’ history. His passion for these vehicles only adds to the enjoyment and gorgeous nostalgia of the experience.
