The Rosebery

Available for exclusive hire

Nicknamed ‘the most exclusive English party’, The Rosebery is a converted 1966 Routemaster, now equipped with a cocktail bar downstairs and elegant dining area on the top deck with a roof that rises at the touch of a button.

The Rosebery operated in London for over 30 years. Her last route was up Rosebery Avenue in Islington before being taken out of service. The London Routemaster is one of the world’s most iconic and beautiful vehicles. It is that rare thing – an elegant and brilliant piece of design that is now almost extinct.

The Rosebery is available for hire, and there’s no better way to add a touch of eccentricity and elegance to private or corporate summer events. The experience is extremely flexible, with availability for exclusive use at private homes for weddings, birthdays, as well as being taken to the most important and exclusive occasions in the social and sporting calendar throughout the year - including a select number of festivals.

The Rosebery comes with:

  • Its own team of highly professional and experienced events managers who oversee all aspects of a client's experience from start to finish

  • A sommelier to advise on wine & cocktails

  • A comprehensive food and drink service designed to fulfil the specific requirements of each client (cocktails & canapés, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner, cocktail parties, viewing parties etc.)

  • Seating for 18 on the top deck (or 30 standing) 

  • A 1930’s inspired cocktail bar 

  • A fully reconditioned engine that can drive across the UK, Europe, or be flown/transported worldwide
