Step by Step

Buying tickets for the Big Bus sightseeing bus takes you around London's must-see sights in a convenient, comfortable and safe way.

There are three different routes available, which also include a boat trip on the River Thames on the one-day Classic, two-day Premium and three-day Deluxe plans.

As an added bonus, the two and three-day tickets offer a 90-minute open-top night bus tour.

You can make use of the Hop on-Hop off system, which allows you to find your favourite stops and hop off to explore the areas on foot, allowing you to explore the city at your leisure, at your own pace.

In addition to an audio guide, the ticket includes the option of walking tours with a professional guide, lasting approximately two hours.

Buses run every 15-20 minutes at their respective stops. For the duration of your ticket (one, two or three days), the use of the buses is unlimited from the time of activation with the first use.

The red route is the most comprehensive and extensive. It will take you to legendary sites in the British capital, including:

  • Tower of London
  • Buckingham Palace
  • London Eye
  • Westminster Abbey
  • St Paul's Cathedral

The Blue Route walk includes film sets and unforgettable postcard views of London:

  • Notting Hill
  • Lancaster Gate Bridge
  • Kensington Palace and Gardens
  • Hyde Park Corner Square

If you take the green route link, you'll stroll through other must-see sights of the city, which will make your trip an unforgettable experience:

  • Woburn
  • King Cross Station
  • Euston Road
  • British Museum

On the River Thames boat trip, which is included with any of the three tickets, you'll enjoy around 30 minutes of stunning panoramic views of London from its most important tributary. You can access the cruise from three piers: Tower Bridge, Westminster and the London Eye.

For instant, real-time information, you can download the Big Bus mobile app and keep up to date with departures, so you can organise an itinerary at your own pace.

    I thought that by visiting everything from the bus we would not see things in so much detail but after doing this activity I have changed my mind.

    We were fortunate to have a wonderful guide and a sunny day that was perfect.

    My partner and I liked this tour so much that we will probably book it again before the end of our stay in London but this time we would like to do it again at night.

    This tour includes a guided option for a slightly higher price and we highly recommend it, as compared to the audio tour a guide makes the experience more fun.
