𝗗𝗜𝗦𝗖𝗟𝗔𝗜𝗠𝗘𝗥: There will be a variety of classic and heritage vehicles operating the FREE bus services. The team at Northampton Transport Heritage will do our best to accommodate everyone, but please remember that most of the buses are from times past, so we cannot carry wheelchairs, buggies or prams on the buses. Most will have steps at the entrance so please bear this in mind before boarding the buses. You are carried at your own risk and the vehicle owners, drivers or event organisers accept no responsibility for any loss or damage or injury as a result. We regret that we cannot carry dogs, other than assistance dogs on the buses.
