Coach Hire and Minibus Hire in Barnsley

Barnsley is a beautiful market town in South Yorkshire that offers a diverse range of historic sights, group entertainment and boutique shopping. Fly Me and the Britannia Flight Simulator are popular with school trips and corporate away days, while the Retrodome Game & Entertainment Centre and Operation Laser Tag are also well worth considering. And if you want to go wheel to wheel and unleash your competitive side, don’t forget the one and only Tyke Racing.

For those more interested in a little culture and history, Barnsley has so much more to offer. Cannon Hall Farm, Cannon Hall Museum and the iconic Pot House Hamlet each add to the rich culture and heritage of the local area.

There’s also RSBP Dearne Valley and the timeless Wentworth Castle Gardens when you want to get back in touch with nature and explore what the local area has to offer. No matter where you decide to go, leave the logistics to SMC Coach Hire and you’ll never have experienced a day quite like it.
