Overview

Home to British royalty as well as some of the world’s best-known historical monuments, attractions and landmarks, London is a city with sightseeing opportunities aplenty. Hop aboard an open-top Big Bus to soak up the sights of the beloved English capital and discover its delights at your own pace. Four routes are included with your ticket: Best of Central London (Red Route), which lasts for a full 2.5 hours and  includes both a live English-speaking guide and recorded audio commentary in 12 different languages; the Best of the West - Museums & Royalty (Blue Route), covering the West of London stopping at Harrods, the South Kensington Museums and Kensington Palace with audio commentary; the Magical Merlink (Orange Route), providing a direct connection between Madame Tussauds and London's Southbank attractions including the London Eye; the North to Central Link (Green Route), which includes stops at Covent Garden and the British Museum.

For those who want to take it easy, stay on board for the full loops listening to entertaining commentary as you go. If you want to explore the city on foot, hop on and off wherever, and whenever, you like. Big Bus offers a range of activities to do in between daily rides, including a daily walking tour and a 30-minute River Thames sightseeing cruise. See the Itinerary for a full list of stops and more information on the included daily activities.

With your Classic (1 day), Premium (2 day), or Deluxe (3 day) pass, the sights to see are endless. Travel to Trafalgar Square to stand in awe of Nelson’s Column, or stretch your legs on a stroll through beautiful Hyde Park. With your camera in hand, hop off your bus near Buckingham Palace to capture sights of the Queen’s London home, and look out for must-see landmarks such as Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral, the London Eye and more.
