Company History: Wallace Arnold was founded in 1912 and was named after its founders Wallace Cunningham and Arnold Crowe. In February 1969, the Evan Evans tour business in London was purchased. In the late 1970s, Wallace Arnold commenced operating services under the Euroways banner to Europe. By 1980 it operated 290 coaches from its headquarters in Leeds, and owned a subsidiary based in Devon.
When coach services were deregulated by the Transport Act 1980 in October 1980, Wallace Arnold was a founding member of the British Coachways consortium that competed with the state-owned National Express. It left after a year and briefly ran its own service from London to Torbay. The business was owned by the Barr & Wallace Arnold Trust. In 1997, Wallace Arnold was sold to 3i. In April 1994, the company gained infamy, when five of their fleet, transported all of the audience members of an episode of Don't Forget Your Toothbrush to Disneyland Paris, after the two selected audience members won the "Light Your Lemon" game.
In April 2005, Wallace Arnold merged with Shearings to become WA Shearings. In 2007 the Wallace Arnold name was dropped and now the company is known as Shearings Holidays. The merger included eight travel shops in Yorkshire, rebranded from the WA Shearings name until 2010, when they reverted to their original Wallace Arnold Travel name.
