The A.C. Williams Company was originally founded in 1953 as a motor engineer and agricultural machinery repair business. We obtained our first contract for the transportation of school children in the 1960s when we were approached to transport 3 children from a local farm to Ancaster Primary School.

From those days of taking 3 children to school we now have a fleet of 22 vehicles ranging from mini buses, ex-London transport double deckers and the pride of our fleet - 4 state of the art Scania Irizar PB's.

The diverse nature of our fleet gives us the opportunity to cater for every possible requirement from our customers, be it private hire, corporate contracts or joining us on our own ever expanding tour programme.

Our goal is to provide the best possible travelling experience at a reasonable price.
