Who are we?
Galloway was founded in 1965, to provide school group travel to the continent by coach. Initially coaches were hired from operators throughout the country until 1978 when Galloway bought the established coach operating business of A F Braybrooke & Son, based in Mendlesham. The business was renamed Galloway European Coachlines Ltd with its operational base being primarily to provide for the coaching requirements of its own tours.
Expansion continued into extended tours, private hire and contracts. Steadily the fleet expanded, outgrowing the original premises in the centre of Mendlesham's village, and new premises were developed at Denters Hill on the outskirts of the same village to accommodate the larger fleet. This remains the Head Office, vehicle maintenance facility and main depot.
The company services an eight vehicle operation for National Express from East Anglia into the London area as well as operating local bus routes and school contracts. Galloway also operates a variety of coach holiday options (both in the UK and Europe, day excursions such as city sightseeing and theatre trips and much more.
Many of the coaches are also available for private hire. Galloway Travel Group are one of the region's leading coach operators with vehicles ranging from midi coaches to top class 49 seat executive coaches.
March 2017 saw Galloway win the Coach Tourism Innovation of the Year title at the 2017 British Coach Tourism Awards for work with London media agency AKA in launching a coach branded to promote the School of Rock musical.
