KidZania London - the indoor city run by kids at Westfield London, Shepherd’s Bush – has revealed that The Original Tour, London’s award-winning sightseeing bus tour, will become the new official tour bus operator in the attraction.

The child-size electric bus will enable kids to explore all the sights the indoor city has to offer, as well as giving kids the chance to train to be an Original Tour Guide. They will learn how to welcome passengers aboard the bus, and tell them all about the city as they ride around KidZania. The Original Tour proves a fitting partner for KidZania, following The Original Tour’s launch of London’s first 100% electric hop-on hop-off open-top bus last month in ‘real-life’. The “Landmark” tour bus, unveiled outside Westminster Abbey, offers city-trippers a carbon-free copy of the company’s famous tours, in a move welcomed by London’s Deputy Mayor for Environment and Energy.

Eddie Kemsley, CEO of KidZania London, comments: “We are excited to be partnering with The Original Tour; a pioneer in helping to tackle the air pollution crisis in London. As the UK’s first fully electric sightseeing bus on the capital’s streets, we’re delighted with the message that this sends to the future generation with our own ‘mini-me’ version.” Demonstrating KidZania’s ‘learning by doing’ philosophy, The Head Tour Guide will also make sure the kids are equipped with maps and fun facts to share with KidZania tourists, helping develop kid’s reading skills and presentation skills.
