Period setting

Whether it’s recreating motion-picture London of the 60s, 70s and 80s or producing advertising stills for billboards of Abbey Road, Carnaby Street or Kings Road — period detail is important.

Our fleet owns:

  • RML2548 — regarded as the best restored in the country
  • RML2374 — the one in which Kate Middleton travelled to a friend’s wedding
  • RML2390 — Kings Cross to Oxford Street, Metroline
  • RML2498 – non passenger static bus

Close ups

Our vehicles are great for close-up shoots.

We sourced and use the correct paint code for our red buses. They are authentically restored, and faithful to the vibrant red that symbolises London around the world.

The interiors are faithfully restored with the tartan designed by Douglas Scott for the Routemaster to reflect the buses’ interior style — yellow ceiling, red lower side and burgundy seat back.

We ensure they are thoroughly cleaned, inside and out, and gleam in front of the lens.

Camera ready

Our RML buses are the lengthened vehicles that are perfect for wide-angled shots and distance perspectives.

We run a meticulous vehicle maintenance schedule, and are scrupulous about the standards of servicing and replacement parts. It is highly unlikely that we cannot match your filming schedules.

Our crew of drivers are properly licensed (PSV) and are experienced in London traffic. They are fully licensed to carry passengers and are familiar with London’s bus routes and landmarks.
