London\'s Most Beloved Sites

London Bus Tours take you to some of the world’s most famous landmarks. Here is a short guide to what visitors should expect including 10 things you didn’t know about London’s most beloved sites.

Any London bus tours must include a trip to the houses of Parliament; not many people know that UK and overseas guests can watch parliament at work for free, sitting in on debates about current issues.

Make the most of any London bus tours by visiting the Tower of London, a former royal palace and fortress. See spectacular 500 year old armour or be dazzled by the Crown Jewels, the Tower of London has fun activities for the whole family.

At the heart of London can be found Westminster Abbey; a beautiful gothic church. A UNESCO world heritage site popular with visitors to London, the Abbey has been the setting for many royal weddings in the past, and of course was the focus for royal couple Kate and William’s big day.

Any trip to London should involve a sighting of Big Ben, particularly at night when the clock face is illuminated. Big Ben has rarely stopped even after a bomb hit the Commons chamber in World War II.

London Bridge is home some of the most incredible landmarks in London. If you take a trip to the area then you must go and see Shakespeare’s Globe theatre. Sit in the open air theatre to listen to Shakespeare or enjoy a tour of the theatre and find out more about this renowned site.

The London bridge experience was voted the UK’s best year round scare attraction for two years running. Visitors go on a journey through history allowing them to see, hear, feel, taste and even smell what London Bridge was like over the ages. Not for the faint hearted it is a thrilling experience using Hollywood style wizardry.

Up for more gruesome history then go to the London Dungeons to learn about 1000 years of London’s dark and gory past. 11 actor led shows and two scary rides make London Dungeons a popular attraction so book in advance to avoid queues.

Explore the everyday hardships of people living in war time Britain at Churchill’s Britain at War experience just three minutes from London bridge station. Children can take part in quizzes or try on gasmasks, helmets and uniforms.

For more modern history London bus tours can take you to Abbey Road. Walk this famous street and be transported to the 60s and the musical phenomena that is The Beatles. McCartney wrote Lovely Rita, Meter Maid after getting a parking ticket from a female warden on Abbey Road.

Finish off any trip to London with a tour of Buckingham Palace, home to the royal family since Queen Victoria’s time. Surrounded by vast park lands and gardens this grand palace is a great way to end a trip to the capital. It is no wonder that more than 50,000 people visit the palace each year for banquets, lunches, dinners and garden parties.
