Guided Tours

We’re delighted to invite you to join us for a guided tour of Bridgeton Bus Garage, home of the GVVT. See our collection of over 120 buses, fire engines and commercial vehicles, from fully restored vehicles to those under various stages of restoration.

On selected dates we’ll be opening Bridgeton Garage for pre-booked guided tours taking around one hour. We now offer a Family Friendly tour which is more suitable for younger visitors with less in depth information from our tour guides and more hands-on features on the tour. If you have children in your party we recommend the Family Friendly Tour and if your party is adults only we recommend the regular tour.
