Hop On , Hop Off Open Top Double Deck Sightseeing Bus

Forty years ago the company who ran London's red buses decided to put on a special double deck bus on a circuit of London's main attractions. This original idea has now snowballed in popularity to a point where every visitor to London seems to use the tours.

All tours are included in one ticket which lasts for a 24 hour period.

Like its arch rival, Big Bus, Original London Tour offers two main sightseeing routes that cover all the main sights in Central London augmented by a feeder service that shuttles out to the British Museum and Bloomsbury not on the main routes.

As well as the bus tours, free walks and river cruises on the River Thames are also included in the ticket. There is a kids club who get their own commentary and activity book.

Key Points of Original London Tour

Original London Tour Bus Routes

Your ticket covers all the routes on the Original London Tour network in London. You can switch from one to another route as you please.

There are two core routes, The T2 (Red Route) and the T1 (Yellow Route) that cover all the main places of interest in London and to a large part duplicate one another. The Yellow Tour has a live commentary, (only in English). The Red route has multi- lingual commentaries via headphones.

This tour is highly recommended for overseas visitors not comfortable with English. It covers the best of London's sights with an informative commentary in a choice of languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Russian). The route is very similar to the Yellow Route but has an extra section going up to Madame Tussaud's, Baker Street and Regent Street.

Main attractions passed : Madame Tussaud's, Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, The National Gallery, Downing Street, Big Ben, London Bridge, St.Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge, The Tower of London & Westminster Abbey.

The Yellow Route takes you to the best of London's sights with an entertaining and informative commentary in English.

Main attractions: Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, The National Gallery, Downing Street, Big Ben, London Bridge, St. Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge, The Tower of London & Westminster Abbey.

The Museum Tour (T4) Route) gives you easy access to many of London's top Museums, shops and attractions. It runs between 08:15am and 5:15pm every 15 minutes and uses audio guides for commentary. The tour also acts as a hotel feeder service to the Yellow and Red routes covering the South Kensington, Gloucester Road, Kensington High Street, Knightsbridge and Bloomsbury/Euston hotel districts.

SOHO - Covent Garden

It's close to the tube - and a station where many lines cross. It's easy to get anywhere from there. Just look for something close to Covent Garden. You can walk to most theaters from there as well, and the British Museum is nearby. To me, it was the perfect spot to stay in London.
And for fantastic walking tours, check out - the fee is just 6 GBP per walk, or 5 GBP if you buy a pass (bulk discount).
