Originally a family business founded in 1958, Clarkes of London now operates a fleet of more than 50 vehicles, ranging from 19-seaters through to 53 seater coaches.

Clarkes of London became part of the National Express Group when it was purchased by Kent-based coach operator The Kings Ferry in December 2016.

Managing Director, Ian Fraser, said: “The combination of top-spec vehicles, expert drivers, reliable planning and uncompromised safety has made Clarkes of London the first choice for many world leaders, celebrities, Premiership football clubs and blue chip companies.

“This success has grown due to the hard work of every member of our team – from coach drivers and operational staff through to sales advisors and technicians. This culture of excellence has been there from the beginning and we are dedicated to keeping it alive for the next 60 years.

“All the team at Clarkes of London are very proud of their achievements over the past 60 years and we look forward to welcoming London’s people on board our coaches for many more decades.”
