What a wonderful way to explore the area. We rented a 1973 Porsche Targa that was just a gem to drive. I highly recommend Northumbria Classic Car. They had other beautiful cars to rent as well. Our next trip will probably involve renting a E-Type Jaguar for another trip around the area. Great to work with and we had no problems with the car.

We contacted Northumbria Classics with the aim to hiring an E-Type Jaguar for our daughter to arrive at her Prom in style. We were given the choice of two, a coupé and a convertible. After looking at the two cars, we chose the V12 coupé. They did a special rate deal for us and everything went through without a hitch. Phil was very helpful throughout. The car performed perfectly and our daughter had a wonderful surprise trip to the Prom. Thank you Northumbria Classic Car Hire.

My wife treated me to a day in a 1973 BMW 2002 for father's day. A great little runner (the car not my wife...) and loads of fun to drive. A sunny day on the Northumberland coastline in classic cabriolet is about about as good as it gets as far as I'm concerned. The rental process was simple and Phil was great to deal with. He couldn't have been more helpful and is passionate about his cars. He took plenty of time to walk me around the car and we had a drive around the block together so I could acclimatise. An all round great experience. Looking forward to taking the E Type Roadster out some time soon.

First class service, Phil and Mathew made the whole process simple and fun from the initial enquiry through to picking up the car on the day. The car was great fun, particularly when the hood was down!!!, a real experience which everybody should try. The car was extremely well presented and drove really well. Booked the E Type Roader in September, think that says it all!!!. Thank you again and wish you all every success in the future.

The E type in racing green has always been a dream, as a gift for my 50th birthday may wife and family hire me this for the day, a gift I will never to forget! The car was perfect and I would say this is a must if you have ever dreamed of driving an E type it will not disappoint.

I hired this sports car for my partner, what a great time and lovely day out we had in this fantastic car. It was well worth the time and effort to organise this special event. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to give a special gift to someone special, or, spoil yourself.

Woke up in the morning to birthday cards and presents one of which was a Jaguar E Type ragtop for the day. By the way you're picking it up in an hour. Quickest get up ever. Brilliant day, fantastic car (boyhood dream) service was excellent and hassle free, would certainly recommend as the best way to put as my wife said a permanent all day smile on ones face, Thanks to Phil and hope to see the pictures of the S type soon on your website.

After my partner fell in love with the Jaguar E-Type Convertible outside Jesmond Dene House during a wedding open evening I knew I had to book it for the wedding. Especially when I realised you could opt for 'self drive'! As I was stopping at the venue the night before I wanted my partner to arrive 'in style' and so arranged this as a surprise for him. He was completely blown away that he got to drive this beaut to our wedding. I cannot fault the service from Phil and Jeff, very friendly and professional from start to finish. They helped me with keeping this as a surprise by delivering it to my partner on the morning, they then collected the car from the venue later that day so there was no hassle for us to arrange getting the car back. What an absolutely stunning car, not only did it 'wow' my partner but it 'wowed' the guests upon arrival too - it was certainly the talking point! Definitely a highlight of our big day! I would certainly recommend this company to anyone getting married if they want that extra 'wow' factor - you will not be disappointed. Beautiful car, wonderful service and extremely reasonable prices! Definitely the best in the North East!

We hired a wonderfully renovated 1973 Porsche 911 Targa for the day, as a surprise for my wife on our wedding anniversary. We had a great day driving round Northumberland in fine weather. Owner Phil was very helpful and informative, even gave us suggestions of places to go. We loved it. Highly recommended. I'm now tempted to try some of the other cars...

I would just like to thank Phil for a fantastic classic car experience! I hired the 1973 BMW Targa for my Dad's 70th birthday (much better than buying him a new pair of socks) and we had a most memorable day cruising down the coast with the top down. We even let my Mam come along in the back and I even had time at the end of the day to pick up my fiancee (now married) to do one last circuit. I would definitely recommend Northumbria Classic Car hire for any event, the service was professional and seamless.

I recently had the pleasure of hiring a Jaguar E Type sportster to take my son to his prom. The hire was handled in a very professional manner with all paperwork etc carried out with the minimum of fuss and I was soon on my way. I found the car a pleasure to drive and really enjoyed the drive to pick my son up . When I arrived he was gobsmacked. I took him for a drive with the top down and the grin on his face said it all, when I dropped him at his prom he remarked on how he felt so lucky to be in the worlds most beautiful car on a very special day. I can highly recommend Northumbria classics to anyone who has an interest in these fantastic cars or has a family member who deserves a special treat.

Brilliant classic car experience. Travelled right up the Northumbria coast road. Would recommend Northumbria Classic Car Hire to anyone with an interest in old vehicles. The BMW 2002 is a great car to drive and doesn't feel like a 42 year old car - testament to the quality of build by BMW 40 odd years ago!
