Why You Should Get On Board

London is a fantastic city that you can observe from the top deck of a red double-decker bus. The deck offers amazing photo opportunities that can’t otherwise be captured from the city streets. It’s also one of the easiest ways of getting around, especially if you’re a new-timer and you’re hard-pressed for time! The city streets of London are all carefully constructed to reflect on its years of tradition. The life, culture, and diversity of this iconic city is nothing short of breathtaking. From the very dense urban center to the retro streets of London, the city thrives on its multi-cultural roots. There is much to see and do here, and safe to say the atmosphere and energy emitted by London can truly be intoxicating and staggering!
