London open top bus tours give you far more freedom to discover London on your own terms than other types of tours, and this is what makes a hop on hop off experience so distinctive. There are so many attractions waiting to be delved into; make your visit to London all it deserves to be on just such a tour.
The options are endless. Perhaps indulge in some light shopping at world famed Harrods, or visit the distinguished Globe theatre and watch a play for an enchanting and immersive experience. Even hop off to spend the day unwinding in a park – such stunning scenic parks as Hyde Park and Victoria Embankment Gardens are particularly strongly recommended.
Or perhaps make your experience a cultural one and hop off to explore some of London’s most exquisite landmarks like Leeds Castle Tours. Many of London’s most compelling museums offer free entry, and are certainly well worth exploring. Just a few of the most visited include the National Gallery, Tate Britain and Tate Modern, the latter well worth delving into if your interests lie especially in the modern art scene. The British Museum is also the preferred choice for many a visitor.
Instead, you can hop off at the Science Museum. The Science Museum in London is sure to enthrall children, with its many interactive exhibitions making it a wonderful experience. Perhaps see what is on at the revolutionary IMAX theatres. Indulge in a breathtaking IMAX film, which will captivate you and your child in equal measure.
The V&A is a unique museum focused on design from all over the world, situated brief minutes away from both the Science and Natural History Museums. The Ardabil carpet is the spectacular centrepiece of the V&A’s Jameel Gallery of Islamic art, and the world’s oldest carpet. Woven in 1539-40, it will not fail to take your breath away in its archaic grandeur. You can well and truly spend a whole day marvelling at the myriad other charms of the V&A.
The landmarks that really need to be seen are inimitable Buckingham Palace (try to catch ‘the Changing of the Guard’ ceremony), the Tower of London, the impressive London Eye and the majestic St Paul’s Cathedral. The region of Westminster is home to many architectural monuments, and the ‘big three’ are within walking distance of one another – the illustrious Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey.
The Houses of Parliament act as the political and legislative centre of the UK. Beyond question, it is one of the most iconic and renowned landmarks in the world, and symbolises the birth of democratic rule in England. Explore this structure which was crucially brought into existence by the Magna Carta.
Take a hop on hop off London bus tour; whether your interests lie in culture, London’s spectacular architecture, or both, such a tour provides you with the ideal chance to discover London much more extensively than you would be able to on your own.
