Heritage

We as a family have been keen to preserve some of our carriage heritage and we have restored two London Horse Buses and two London built horse drawn Fire engines. We operate and demonstrate these vehicles keeping alive the
historic skills associated with them. We work closely with The London Bus Museum and London transport Museum who strive to keep the transport heritage alive.

We also work with museums that contain period buildings from the horse drawn days. We are also keen to work with listed stables and workshops in London to enable them to maintain them for the future.

"Just a quick note from Patsy and I, personally to sincerely thank you for such a superb day yesterday. It was just great working with you again - great fun as ever. It was quite clear that our horse bus operation and the wonderful French horse cab was the absolute star of the show. Oh Yes! I think that without the pzazz that the Drewitts Events Team brought to the scene, it would have been a bit of a dry old day. So our "unofficial" recognition and admiration for the professionalism of your whole team. Wowser!"
