The Big Bus Tour

Discover London the easy way with The Big Bus Co.

We are agents for the Big Bus Company, who probably have one of the best hop on & hop off sightseeing tours available in London. Prices start at GBP 15.00 per adult and GBP 6.00 for a child aged between 5-15 years.

"The Big Bus experience is the best way to see London"

The tickets are valid for over 12 months for use, and are valid for all 3 tours for 24 hours on all 4 routes. You hop on and off as you like and each bus has live commentary. The buses are very frequent and you can pick them up at any special bus stops in central London.

We issue the tickets and will have them waiting for you at the accommodation, or with the driver picking you up at the airport. There is also a brochure and maps with the tickets giving you full instructions.

Payment is by Credit Card only! Book your tickets before you leave!

St. Paul's Cathederal - Completed in 1708 but still looks fresh and modern. Christopher Wren designed it after the previous St Paul's was destroyed by fire. It's size is awesome. The Cathedral is 157 meters long and 76 meters wide. The ball on top of the dome is big enough to hold 10 people. It became even more famous since it was where Prince Charles married the late Princess Diana, the greatest fairy tale wedding of the century. In the Crypt there are the great tombs two of Britain's most famous military men, Nelson and Wellington.

Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace - You alight in The Mall and make our way to the Queen's residence (she's in if the flag is flying).
