English: Buses in the UK which have been preserved (or are in the process of being preserved) for posterity, and as such, are now only used as museum exhibits, or for display or running at shows or rallies. The category also currently includes 'historical' or 'vintage' buses still used for revenue earning service - these buses are often owned by specialist operators, for private hire or occasional tour work, or by mainstream operators, who might maintain them as a 'heritage fleet' for occasional use on special occasions, such as anniversaries or 'last day' runs.

This category does not contain old buses that have simply passed from a mainstream operator, to some other private use, nor does it contain buses that are used for regular revenue earning stage carriage (public transport) or tour service work, using older buses as a marketing tool (e.g. the Routemasters used by Reading Mainline for public transport, or by Lothian Buses for Edinburgh tours.)

In UK bus preservation, it is common for the bus being preserved, which may have passed through a number of operators, and worn an number of different liveries, in its working life, to be restored into the livery of its first owner/operator. In extreme cases, this may involve reverting changes to the configuration/structure of the bus.
