London from Above
Sightseeing in London is one of the main reasons people visit the capital, visiting art galleries and museums, seeing historic buildings and streets and learning about the history of the city. When you think of London, you think of certain iconic images, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Piccadilly Circus, Beefeaters, the Big Red London Bus. These are all great tourist sights and places/things that people flock to the capital to see.
What many people miss though, is the chance to actually use the special London Tour Bus to see most of these sights! These buses are open-topped and provide great opportunities to see London from a fantastic vantage point. There are also friendly, knowledgeable tour guides on these that give insight and educational quality to the tours, plus they’ll answer all and any questions you have.
Using these tour buses couldn’t be easier, there is a great hop-on hop-off feel to them, if you want to stay and look at an area or building in more depth then you can and join another tour bus when it passes later that day. Seeing London’s grand buildings and winding streets from atop an open-topped bus is a unique experience that you shouldn’t miss.
Sky High Sightseeing
If this isn’t the high-spot you were looking for, then you can take London Sightseeing to a whole new level by wandering down to Greenwich. This is where you’ll find the London Eye, itself a sight to behold. Jump into one of its pods and take the trip high above the Thames, from where you can see almost all of London and off into the distance. Make the most of it and find some great hotels near the O2, only a short walk from the eye itself, making your early morning or late night visit much more relaxing.
While up on the eye you can see all the way down the Thames, past The O2 Arena up to the Docklands, and across the river at Big Ben and Parliament from a whole new angle. You are able to see all of London’s buildings in your panoramic pod, St Paul’s Cathedral, the Mayor of London’s offices and very far into the distance you can see the arch of Wembley stadium. If you wanted a real treat, go in the evening and see London at night from up on high. Not to be missed.
