About Us

Whether it’s for work or leisure, the need to travel is something the majority of us have to do on a regular basis. As large companies close satellite offices and brigade everyone in central city locations, employees are required to travel into work from nearby towns and villages which have effectively become commuter settlements, a term often heard these days. People also travel much further for leisure purposes than they once did, thinking nothing of visiting a city some distance away to shop, attend the theatre or see their favourite band play at the arena. We all become tourists too at some point, whether it’s a weekend away or an annual holiday and there is always someone who needs to get to an airport, railway station or ferry terminal. Faced with this need to travel, you hear people complain that it doesn’t get any easier, bus and rail fares seem to be always increasing, buses and trains are often dirty and all forms of public transport are subject to delays and changes. Ripon Minibus can help with all your travel requirements, it doesn’t matter how far you are going or what the purpose of your journey is, why not chose to travel in style? You will receive a first-class service from Ripon Minibus at a very competitive price that leaves our competitors without a leg to stand on, and you can be assured that at Ripon Minibus are completely reliable. We will get you to where you need to be, in safety and comfort, on time, every time. Ripon, the third smallest city in England, is in North Yorkshire. It was founded by St. Wilfred over 1,300 years ago and it’s the magnificent cathedral, the reason Ripon was granted city status, dates back to the Twelfth Century. Ripon also has other interesting historical buildings and three museums which, collectively, come under the title of the Yorkshire Law and Order Museum. The three are as follows, The Courthouse, The Prison and Police Service and the Workhouse museums. Ripon is one of the few places to have its own Hornblower who sounds a horn in the market place at 9.00pm each evening, a tradition which dates back to 886 and the local Wakeman. Ripon Market is held each Thursday and there are more that’s 100 stalls selling a wide variety of goods. Each year the city holds the Wilfred Procession to celebrate its founder. Decorated floats progress through the streets and there are displays from Morris Men and Sword Dancers. It is an ideal location from which to visit the north-east, Northumberland, Durham and West Yorkshire, or travel west to Lancashire, with its mill towns, the Trough of Bowland beauty spot and the Fylde Coast, including Blackpool of course with its famous tower, Golden Mile and Pleasure Beach.
