Then catch the under ground. I thinks it's called the lube.Anyhow; it is very easy to use. Make sure you get a pass. Just... More

This bus tour was a fantastic way to see some key tourist sites in London. Tour guide was very informative as well, and took care to get you on a connecting tour if you wanted to.

Great buses, great bus routes, great deal on pay for one day and get the next free. Takes you to all the major sites, some buses have commentary which is useful and entertaining. Overall made our experience in London more enjoyable!

Short stay in London? This s an easy way to see all the attractions and decide which ones you would like to explore further. Very easy way to travel. There are 2 "lines" one line, Red line as live English commentary. Really enjoyed the tour guides, they were very knowledgable. Pity we had a loud group of 4 Americans sitting... More

Love the Big Bus Tour. It's a great way to get an overview of London and some fun interesting facts as well. It's also great to do on your first day in London to help tired travelers. I've done it twice and have enjoyed it both times

Did this the first day we arrived to get our bearings. Definitely worth it because we ended up not getting back to some of the sights so we were glad we saw them on the bus. Including the river tour is a great bonus. Didn't get a chance to do either of the walking tours but they looked good.

We had been to London before, and didnt want to see all the attractions up close. We hoped on at picadilly and travelled to the end. The guide was funny and an excellent story teller. We talked to loud and he told us very politely to be quiet. I am glad, cause he was worth listening to. The tour is... More

Staying in Belgravia

Neighborhood Profile
Belgravia
Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic residences in London, sophisticated and upscale Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw away to the north, and some of Europe’s best shopping is nearby as well.
