The only self-drive classic car hire service in Newcastle upon Tyne.

We have a selection of excellent iconic Classic Cars for hire on a daily basis throughout the entire year. Hire rates from £89. Our cars are available for special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, proms, corporate events and many more. A rare opportunity to drive a carefully maintained and sporting classic. Your car will have full insurance and you will have an accompanied preliminary test drive to familiarise the drivers with the car. Located in Gosforth, we are members of the HCHG ensuring quality of our cars and service.

We provide a fantastic choice of cars for you to consider. They have been selected and prepared to ensure they are quality examples, often with careful upgrades for safety and comfort to braking, suspension and road handling not to mention improvements to engine reliability and performance. Our aim is for you to have a worry free, trouble free classic car experience that lingers long in the memory and hope that you recommend us to your friends family and colleagues!

Work with us: we provide a bespoke service for your business needs, from injecting a little British class into your fashion press imagery, to prop use on your national TV show. We can also provide our whole fleet if necessary, organising a complete road trip. For example, NE1 Magazine was able to promote the annual Newcastle Car Show more effectively, capturing images that communicate the excitement of classic cars. See our press page for more!
Really helpful on both the phone and the website. BMW Targa was delivered to the venue both on time and in immaculate condition. The whole transaction was memorable for the Groom. Many Thanks

Brilliant service, even with the short notice. Car was immaculate - 1970 Jaguar E type, which was an eye turner. Made us feel really special for a special day/celebration.

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.

The perfect car for the big day get away car for our mini moon. Thoroughly recommend Phil's company for those special occasions. Maybe the 911 for a future anniversary?!!

We booked the E-Type Jaguar through Northumbria Classic Car Hire as a surprise to celebrate my Dad's first day of retirement. He absolutely loved it and had a brilliant day - it was great that he had time for a short lesson on how to drive it with Phil and also had a good chat about cars! It was all easy to organise and Phil was really helpful.

A birthday present for Dad from our daughter. We had such a fun day, got loads of "toots and waves" from passers by. Took the dog as well, his fur blowing in the wind. Weather behaved so it was brilliant having the top down. The first time for both of us. The Morris Minor certainly was a classic. Many thanks.

Phil was extremely helpful in making the E-type available to accommodate our schedule, and the car was well prepared and ready to go. Driving the beautiful Jaguar convertible along the coast, following the route that Phil had pre-programmed into the sat nav, was the highlight of our trip to the UK.

Great service for my daughter's wedding. Driving her to the ceremony in the E type was brilliant and the S type for the bridesmaids rounded it off beautifully.

I received a gift voucher from Northumbria Classic Car hire for my 60th birthday from my wife last November. I waited for the good weather to come around (last weekend) and decided on the E type Jaguar soft top. We drove to the Lake District for the weekend we spent our time driving around the winding roads with the top.

Excellent service and superb car. Hired for dad's 80th birthday and he had a great time, brought back memories of 50 years ago when he had one. Phil really knows his stuff and was great to talk to, just wish I had the time to take the invite up to look at the other cars he has. Could not recommend this company enough.
