…. right place, right time, pleasant journeys

Are you looking for coach hire in the north of England and beyond? Then there is no better place for you to look than Wright Bros Coaches. With depots high up in Cumbria and in the heart of the City of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, we've got it covered!

One of the longest running coach operators in the country and still a family business, Wrights offers second to none customer service and our priority is always you, the customer. Big enough to cope, but small enough to care.

Check out our fleet information page to see we have a range of coaches to suit your needs and those of your passengers. Two coaches we are very proud of are our classics, a Bedford Plaxton Panorama (1973) and a Crossley Burlingham (1949). These two vintage vehicles are the perfect way to travel to your special occasion, be it a wedding, birthday party or day trip for your club members. You'll certainly get some admiring looks travelling along the motorway!

We want to make it as straightforward and easy as possible for organisers. Below are some of the questions we get asked the most, but if you have one that's not featured below and you need advice, then please give us a call on 01434 381200 or drop us an email. If we can help, we will.

Next, we just need a few details from you and we'll get back to you quickly with a price and the reassurance that everything has been put in place for your journey there and back. Afterall, with over a century of experience, we think we've had first hand experience of just about anything you could possibly need to ask.

It's first class travel all the way.......... so enjoy the ride!!
