Experience the enchantment of London after hours on a night sightseeing tour. Aboard a double-decker bus, take a 1.5-hour trip through the city to see illuminated attractions like Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye. Hear fascinating facts about passing sites and insider tips on where to visit in the bustling capital city from your expert guide.
Even if you've seen the same attractions during the day, this night tour will give you a new perspective. Sights like the London Eye, Big Ben and Tower of London look beautiful lit up after dark, with their lights reflected in the river. It's a dazzling way to see the city.
Your night tour through London begins at Green Park in city center. Board the double-decker bus and grab a comfortable seat for the 1.5-hour ride. Setting off through Piccadilly, you’ll get your first views of London magically illuminated. See the lively evening crowd and pass elegant stores like Fortnum & Mason juxtaposed by modern neon billboards. Continue on to Westminster to view the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey wonderfully shadowed by spotlight, and cruise by the Thames River dotted with glittering boats.
You’ll soon arrive at St Paul’s Cathedral, the country's second biggest church and a masterpiece of baroque architecture. Take a moment to marvel at the magnificent dome set against the city skyline, then catch great views of the illuminated London Eye and the iconic Tower Bridge, spilling golden light down from its two magnificent towers.
The final leg of your tour takes you to Knightsbridge, an attractive neighborhood flush with concert venues, museums and upscale shopping. Pass by Harrods – one of London’s most famous shops – on your way back to Green Park where your tour ends.
Great commentary and sights! A lovely tour to do in winter/Christmas time- even if it is cold!
Great introduction to London! I did this tour on my first night and loved it. The sites are beautiful at night and it helped me get a feel for where they are all located before visiting each during the day.
My husband and I only had one evening in London due to flight issues, so I booked this tour to give him a glimpse of London. It was fantastic! We got to see all the main buildings in the warmth of a bus. The tour was informative as well. It is a great way to see all the buildings lit up at night as well!
This was a Great choice, beautiful to see London and its nightly views.... No Hassles, showed my visitor ticket went right in the Bus....
Amazing trip. Would thoroughly recommend. Beautiful city at night. But take warm clothes if you go in October and want to experience it from up top
A fantastic tour of the city of London! You learn a little about the history of the city, fun facts and Harrods at night is amazing! I was a little bummed to see that most people bought their tickets on board the bus for 18GBP. MUCH less than what I paid. In fact, their brochure says that the tour cost 18GBP. Oh well live and learn.
This was a great way to see London at night without multiple tube exchanges. I was with my 90 year old Mother and we both had a fantastic experience. We were on the upper deck of the bus and had prepared for windy, night conditions. The views were amazing of all the places we had traveled so far to see. Thank you so much for this fantastic tour!
Really interesting trip at night to see London. The guide was amazing and so funny. He knew so much about the history and London landmarks.
It was great! A little hard to hear because of traffic. Pictures came out beautiful.
