London by Bus on The Original Tour is a fantastic way to see regal, unpredictable, multicultural London!
The Original Tour Bus company has over 60 yrs of admiral experience presenting London and all her historical landmarks to the world. There are so many fully informative, comprehensive ways to see this poetic city all included in the price of your £25 (if purchased on the net) ticket.
Each ticket will last for 48 hrs. This will provide you with 2 days worth of touring for the price of 1. Tours are hop on hop off style and there are up to 80 stops to disembark ensuring your stop is never too far from anywhere in London you want to visit.
The buses depart every 15-20 minutes, just look for the signs on the designated bus stops as shown on The Original Bus Tour pamphlet offered with your ticket. For first timers I would also suggest starting from one of five main starting points as also highlighted on the tour pamphlet.
The fleet of double decked buses are modern and comfortable with an exposed open top. There is seating above in the natural air and also below. If you can happily brave the possibility of some of London’s interesting weather, then I strongly recommend sitting up on the top deck in order to immerse yourself in the invigoration and adrenaline of the city.
It’s also the best vantage point for a myriad of photo opportunities where you feel as if you can almost reach out your arm and touch Big Ben and all it’s elegant charismatic charm.
There are 3 main sightseeing bus routes available for you to be swept away by London’s majestic beauty: The Original Tour (yellow route), the City Sightseeing Tour (red route) and the Museum Tour (blue route). Each option is 2hrs and 15 minutes in duration if you choose to stay on board throughout the journey. Naturally you can choose all 3 if you like too!
You will be able to view all of the major sights including:
- 7 famous bridges,
- Big Ben,
- Buckingham Palace,
- Trafalgar Square,
- St. Paul’s Cathedral,
- Westminster Abbey,
- and many more influential icons.
All tours are either live professionally guided in the English language or digitally recorded commentaries in 9 different languages aligned with the timing of the upcoming sights.
In addition to the bus tour routes are 3 free educational guided walking tours: The Changing of the Guard Tour, The Rock n Roll Tour, and Jack the Ripper Tour.
There is also an included hop on hop off Thames cruise between Westminster and Tower Piers.
The kids will be entertained too, with a free kids club activity pack with special commentary exclusively designed for children, which is available on the red and blue routes only.
Don’t forget to keep your ticket too as it will also allow you to receive a discount on one of 80 City Sightseeing tours around the world!
This is definitely a complete one stop shop for all your London experiences and will keep you fully entertained for the full two days.
