London Hop-On Hop-Off Bus

The London tourist bus makes four different routes, with 50 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.  

  • Red Line: The most complete route, with a duration of 2 hours 10 minutes, passing through some of the major sights in London. It runs daily from 8 am to 6 pm, every 10 to 15 minutes in summer and every 10-20 minutes in winter.
  • Blue Line: This route passes through the west of London, making stops near Harrods, the best museums in the city and Kensington Palace. This route lasts 1 hour 15 minutes and leaves daily from 8 am to 6 pm, every 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Orange Line: This route connects Madame Tussauds on Baker Street and the main attractions on Southbank, including the London Eye. This route lasts 1.5 hours and leaves daily from 8:50 to 6:15, every 45 minutes.
  • Green Line: This route links north and central London. Ideal for anyone staying outside the city centre. The route lasts an hour and leaves from 8:20 am and 7 pm every 20-30 minutes.

Some of the most interesting stops are: Westminster, London Eye, St. Paul's Cathedral, London Bridge and the Tower of London.

  • 3 Day Ticket: Includes unlimited access to the Big Bus buses over 72 hours and a return boat cruise between the Westminster and Tower of London docks.
  • Night Tour (only between May and September): Leaves daily at 7:30 pm. 8 pm and 8:30 pm from the London Eye (stop 11), at 7:45 pm, 8:15 pm and 8:45 pm from Victoria Station (stop 22) and at 8 pm, 8:30 pm and 9 pm from Marble Arch (stop 4). The night route takes place with an audio guide, but in this case, the tour makes a complete route of 1.5 hours, and is not hop-on-hop-off. This tour is included in the 2 and 3 day ticket, and you can also reserve it separately if you book the one day ticket.

All tickets also include a guided walking tour in English, helping you to get to know everything about the British royal family and the mysteries and legends of London. The hour-long tour leaves every day from Trafalgar Square (stop 6) at 10:30 am.

How does it work?

The ticket is valid for 1, 2, or 3 days following its first use. That is to say, a 2 day ticket first used on Monday at 3 pm will be valid until Wednesday at 3 pm.

During this period you may get on and off the buses as many times as you like, to discover impressive sights such as Westminster Abbey, the well known Big Ben, Buckingham Palace or the bustling Picadilly Circus, a meeting point for tourists and locals alike.
