A Wealth
of History

100 years of business

We pride ourselves on being one of the longest established coach companies in the country dating back 4 generations to the 1920’s. We originally started with horses and carriages, then modernizing the business into buses and coaches. During the second World War our buses were even used as ambulances. In 1963 Henry Cooper died leaving the business to his daughter Lily. She quickly rose to the challenge and with the help of her son Graham was the heart of the operation up until her death in 2015. Graham started working in the business from age 11 and still runs the business with his wife Pamela and daughter Jade to this day.

You can always rely on Henry Cooper Coaches for transportation across the North East.
