Itinerary
Redeem your 24- or 48-hour ticket at a date convenient to you, and board your sightseeing bus at one of the multiple stops around London. Opt to remain on each bus route for the entire loop, or disembark whenever an attraction captures your attention.

Live or prerecorded commentary brings the capital city’s history to life, while the included River Thames cruise and walking tours reveal a different side to London.

Some popular attractions this hop-on hop-off tour stops at are the London Eye, Big Ben, Madame Tussauds London, Kensington Palace, and Piccadilly Circus. See the Itinerary for a detailed list of stops covered.

Everything you need to see and do in London

Hop on, hop off is a convenient and economical way to see all the sights in London. We particularly enjoyed the buses with the live commentary. This is a must when in London.

No there is not, it is a regular double decker tour bus. However, the stops are frequent, the driver can tell you where the closest toilet is from any stop, and they are plentiful.

I’m not sure they are the closest, but Piccadilly or Trafalgar square are 2 of the most convenient places to go to to redeem your pass.
