- Discover every corner of London with four bus routes
Explore the top sights and attractions on either side of the Thames and enjoy a river cruise along with three free walking tours: the Changing of the Guard; the Rock ‘n’ Roll Walk and also the Jack the Ripper tour. This is the easiest way to see London from A to Z.
There are four routes, red, blue, orange as well as yellow, with five main starting points. The blue route is famous as the Royal Borough Tour stopping at Kensington Palace and the Victoria and Albert Museum among many other Royal hotspots including the high end; iconic store Harrods.
