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.

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.

Not good if you don’t have much time

I only had one day, so I thought I’d give the hop on hop off style tour a try to make the most of my day. It was a waste of both time and money. After waiting for over 30 minutes after the first hop...More

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.
