About The Big Bus London Tour:
The Big Bus London Tour lets you visit all of central London’s top sights and attractions over 1 to 3 days. Hop aboard any of their maroon-coloured open-top double decker buses and discover 45+ conveniently located stops spread out across four main sightseeing routes.
You can hop off and explore on foot as often as you want, then rejoin the tour once you're ready. If you're a first time visitor (or have a 1-day ticket) we recommend using your first day to experience the city in full, then the second or third to revisit your favourites.
All tickets include a free 1.5-hour walking tour, plus either a one-way (classic) or return (premium and deluxe) river cruise pass for a journey from Westminster to Greenwich via Tower of London.

Free Walking Tour:
Included with all ticket types is a Sandeman’s walking tour departing at 10:30 from Trafalgar Square (stop 9). This 1.5-hour journey will lead you from Trafalgar Square, along Carlton Gardens, the Mall and through St James’ Park to Horseguard’s Parade, taking in areas that you can’t reach by bus.
On days when there is a Changing of the Guard, your guide will escort you to Buckingham Palace to see this traditional ceremony for yourself, before completing a short tour back to Trafalgar Square.
