The London hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus is a practical way to see the main sights in the British Capital. You can get on and off the bus at any of its stops, to explore the city at your own pace.

London Hop-On Hop-Off Bus

The London tourist bus has four different routes with 45 stops in total. You'll pass through London on board an open top double-decker bus, taking in the unmissable sights in one of the most visited cities in the world with a fascinating audio guide. Your bus ticket also includes a boat trip on the River Thames and, with the 2 and 3 day tickets, a night bus tour too.

Some of the most interesting stops on the routes are Westminster, the London Eye, St Paul's Cathedral, London Bridge and the Tower of London. You can check out the routes and stops of the tour bus and of the boat trip via the following links:
