Royal Blue Run

11.30am-2pm, 22 June 2024

Vintage Coaches from the Thames Valley & Great Western Omnibus Trust will be stopping at Amberley Museum as part of the 3-day Royal Blue Run.

Come and see the vintage coaches in the Museum White Pit around 11.30-2pm on Saturday 22 June.

Please pre-book tickets to avoid disappointment.

Background

The Royal Blue Run was established in 2002 so that owners and their passengers can relive the pleasures of long-distance luxury coach travel for which their carefully preserved vehicles were originally intended. The aim is to follow the original Royal Blue routes as closely as possible and to travel at a leisurely pace redolent of the times. The run also creates a wonderful spectacle for innocent bystanders and dedicated photographers alike, thanks to the hard work and resources the owners have devoted to restoring and maintaining their fine coaches.

2024 is the 90th anniversary of the founding of Associated Motorways, and the 95th anniversary of the inauguration of Royal Blue’s coastal service from Bournemouth to Sussex and Margate (followed a few weeks later by a competitive service by Southdown and East Kent!). The route this year therefore incorporates sections of routes worked by Associated Motorways and Royal Blue. The trip combines extracts from a number of Royal Blue services.
