Henry Cooper Coaches can boast a long and proud history, offering coach hire, dating back to the 1920s and spanning three generations of our family. 

Our proud history 

Along with his brother George, Henry Cooper started taking passengers from their site at Annitsford, Northumberland to the beach at Seaton Sluice, back then horses and carts provided the transportation. In 1926 the horses were retired to the field and Henry bought his first bus, a Reo Speedmaster Major which marked the very beginning of Henry Cooper Coaches. 1926 was to prove an even more significant year after the birth of his daughter Lily, the future owner of her father's business.

Henry died in 1963 leaving the business and four Bedford buses to Lily. She quickly rose to the challenge and has been at the heart of the operation ever since. In 1968 she bought a state of the art Bedford VAM5 and together with her son (my good self), we have continued to expand from Grandfather’s original site at Lane End Garage, Annitsford. 
9 modern coaches

Continuing the legacy ???

Today we operate 9 modern coaches and a reconditioned London Routemaster bus. Hard work is still the order of each day, keeping the coaches clean and safe and ready for the next job keeps us all very busy. Coaching is our family tradition and of course, our future. We hope you enjoy your travel with Henry Cooper Coaches. It is our pleasure to have you on-board.
