The ultimate childhood dream. The AEC Regent III, know as the RT type London bus is an iconic bus in service between 1939 to 1979. The RT was so long lasting that they where in service for almost 20 years along side the brand new hi-tech Routemaster's.
Most notable for its appearance in the 1963 film Summer Holiday starring Cliff Richard, and often confused with the Routemaster in this role. It also featured in the more recent Harry Potter series as the triple deck Knight Bus.
This is a unique opportunity to drive this rare and iconic vehicle around our private circuit at North Weald Airfield and fulfil a childhood dream since you ever travelled to school on one of these buses. With our Gold package you also get to drive the iconic Routemaster bus and the Platinum package allows your to drive the modern Bendy bus, together these vehicles span almost 70 years of London service buses.
This is a special event and spaces are limited to just 50 spaces. We plan to run these events on various select dates in summer 2017 for the best possible experiences.
The perfect gift or a once in a lifetime treat for yourself.
