Open-Top Bus Tours in London
If you are looking for a fun and easy way to explore London, you might want to consider taking an open-top or hop-on hop-off bus tour. These tours allow you to see the city's most famous landmarks and attractions from a comfortable and convenient seat on a double-decker bus. You can also hop off at any stop and explore the area on foot, then hop back on when you are ready to continue your journey.
One of the best open-top bus tours in London is the Big Bus London Hop-On Hop-Off Tour and River Cruise. This tour lets you choose from three different routes that cover the main sights of London, such as Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Tower Bridge, Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square, and more. You can also enjoy live commentary in English or personal commentary in 12 languages on board. Plus, you get a free one-way river cruise on the Thames that offers a different perspective of the city.
Another great option is the Vintage London Bus Tour Including Thames Cruise with Optional London Eye. This tour takes you on a nostalgic ride on a classic Routemaster bus that dates back to the 1960s. You will see some of the most iconic places in London, such as St Paul's Cathedral, The Tower of London, and The Houses of Parliament. You will also get to enjoy a scenic cruise on the Thames and have the option to add a ticket to the London Eye for a spectacular view of the city.
If you are a fan of Harry Potter, you might want to check out the London: Harry Potter Walking Tour + Hop-on Hop-off Bus + River Thames Cruise. This tour combines a 24-hour hop-on hop-off bus pass with a guided walking tour of some of the locations featured in the Harry Potter films, such as Diagon Alley, Platform 9 3/4, and The Leaky Cauldron. You will also get to cruise along the Thames and see some of the landmarks that inspired J.K. Rowling's magical world.
