Baker’s Dolphin is a coach and holiday company with a strong ethos and great deals every day. |Sitting right in the middle of the Arcade, the close-knit team at Baker’s Dolphin work hard to deliver affordable deals for amazing experiences.


Bakers Dolphin has a long and rich local history, one that stretches back to 1889, when the Baker family set up a pony and trap transportation business, carrying anything from people to Royal Mail post. That’s right, Bakers Dolphin started as a family-run business, and still is to this day!

The routeone Awards are their way of highlighting the true champions of the local travel industry – and are a massive deal.

Now, our very own Bakers Dolphin have been nominated for not just one – but two whole awards at the routeone Awards! Bakers Dolphin have been nominated for both the Tourism Programme of the Year and Large Coach Operator awards – definitively proving what’s plain to see: they’re some of the most dedicated, hard-working coach operators in the country.


With judges including Joan Aitken OBE – the former Traffic Commissioner for Scotland – and Graham Russell – former Director at FirstGroup – it’s a weighty and considered judging process. Nominated operators are now being invited to submit their entries, with winners being announced at the ceremony on November 13.


So fingers crossed, Bakers Dolphin – we’ll see you in November!
