When people think about coach hire, they usually have 72 seaters in mind. Here at Sheffield Coach Hire, we can provide a 72 seater but we also have a fantastic fleet of smaller coaches for those occasions when a minibus is just not large enough to accommodate the number of people travelling. We are Sheffield's premier coach and minibus hire company. We have worked hard for over twenty-five years to build our reputation with the good people of Sheffield. We offer an all inclusive package based on the coach you choose plus mileage. We are happy to give you a no obligation quote that won't increase when you confirm your booking and we are, of course, happy to discuss your requirements with at any time.
Sheffield is a city in South Yorkshire renowned for Sheffield Steel and iron. Today, only Forgemaster remains as the city's sole remaining Steel Works and Sheffield has largely left its industrial heritage behind and become a major retail centre and the site of a number of Government departments, including DWP and the Home Office. Sheffield University and Sheffield Hallam bring thousands of students from all over the world into the city and this is reflected in its many bars, restaurants and thriving nightlife. Sheffield has undergone much renovation in recent years. The Winter Garden and Millenium Centre are popular attractions for residents and visitors alike. Many people know Sheffield as the home of the World Snooker Championships, held at The Crucible Theatre and of course, as the home of the football teams, Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United.
We buy our coaches and our minibuses from major manufacturers. Our smallest coach seats 24 and we have vehicles that will accommodate 24, 33, 49 and 72 respectively. These are top-of-the-range coaches built for comfort and with the needs of the traveller in mind. Each seat is adjustable and there is plenty of room for arms and elbows; arm rests and overhead vanity lighting is standard on some models. The coaches are air-conditioned, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enabled. I mentioned our 72 flagship coach earlier. This really represents the acme of coach building. It is a superb vehicle and even has a toilet and refreshment making facilities on board. Of course all our coaches have plenty of space for bags and luggage.
Why Book a Coach
We think coach travel is a great way for those who want to travel together to get to their destination. It doesn't matter whether you want to stay local, enjoy a day excursion, have a weekend away or go further afield. When you book with Sheffield Coach Hire, there is no limit to where we can take your group. People have booked coaches of all sizes for:
Theme park visits;
Sporting events; and
In and Around Sheffield
There are lots of reasons to book a coach to take you to activities in and around the city. Will4 Adventure offers guided walks, climbing, orienteering and much more and caters for different types of group, including families. Fancy meeting an alpaca? Holly Hay, a company situated close to the city centre allows you to feed an alpaca and take it for a walk. 61% of the Sheffield area is green space, so, surprisingly there are many parks. Millhouse Park on Abbeydale Road South is one of the most popular ones. Within its gates is an interactive water play area, skateboard park, outdoor gym and zip-wire. For history buffs, there is the Weston Park Museum which houses a very interesting collection which tells the history of Sheffield. It also regulalry hosts visiting exhibitions. Add to these Sheffield Motorsport Arena, a venue for world-class entertainment, dog racing at Owlerton and Sheffield Ice Ring and you are bound to find something to keep your group occupied.
Day Trips from Sheffield
Situated close to the M1 motorway and on the edge of the Derbyshire Peak District, lots of places are accessible for a coach trip out of the city. Chatsworth House and Gardens, home of the Duke of Devonshire, is a major tourist attraction 17 miles from Sheffield. If you are travelling with young children, why not take them to Gulliver's Kingdom at Matlcok Bath? This is a theme park especially constructed with their needs in mind. The Peak District is stunning and there are lots of places of interest. Take a trip to Hatfield High Peak which doubles as Royston Vasey in the popular TV comedy, The League of Gentlemen or go and marvel at Lady Bower Reservoir. Hathersage village has a church dating back to the 14th Century and the grave of Little John of Robin Hood fame is here, reputedly. The village also has a heated open-air lido

Scotland and the Highlands are always popular destinations and we regularly take groups across the English Channel to France, Holland and Belgium. Provide our driver with your travel documents and they will deal with the port authorities on your behalf. If you want to travel on the European continent, we can do that too.
