The Wright Experience

From schoolchildren to rock stars and everyone in between. In Wright's 100 year plus history our drivers have transported countless passengers from all walks of life to all kinds of destinations.

A lifeline to many, we offer regular buses between Nenthead and Hexham and during the summer months we operate the popular route of Newcastle to Keswick with lots of stops along the way. We also transport many children to school and are trusted, long-standing contractors with several local authorities and education departments.

Thank you for a fantastic service as usual. Everyone was well taken care of. And your lovely, friendly coach driver.

Thank you for the efficient service on our trip to Normandy. The driver was excellent, negotiating the tricky roads as well as supporting some of our older veterans in and out of the coach.

Our Choir had a successful trip to Holland. It made a huge difference having a friendly driver and the use of the coach as a base.
