The Original Tour Bus Routes

So, you’ve made a list of all of the landmarks and attractions you want to tick off in central London, now it’s time to find the best route. You can hop on and off all day long and any of our stops of the Yellow route, making it easy to see as much of London as possible. Please note that we are currently operating a reduced service on our main route.

Our main route takes you to all of the best parts of central London, and, with a bus every 25-40 minutes, if you hop-off quickly to explore an area or landmark, the next bus is never far behind. If you have a 24 hour ticket, make the most of your free Thames river cruise by hopping off at Westminster, taking the river cruise to Tower Pier and boarding Yellow Route again at the Tower of London.

The Yellow Route is the perfect way to see the best bits of London before exploring the city by foot. We have a live guided tour in English and an audio guided tour in 11 languages on this route. Once you hop on board, we will take you past the London Eye, St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower of London, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Horse Guards Parade, Pall Mall, Piccadilly Circus and St James’s Palace. The Yellow Route also crosses London Bridge, Westminster Bridge, Waterloo Bridge and Tower Bridge.

Live Guided Tour Buses: Buses will display 'English live guide'' on the light-up screen on the front & side will have entertaining live-guided commentary in English. Every bus will be live-guided in September. In October, tours leaving at 11:20, 13:20 and 15:20 from Coventry Street will be live-guided.

Frequency: Every 40 minutes from Monday to Friday in September.
