In London for a city break, a day out or live nearby? Why not take the kids on a short but sweet adventure aboard an iconic open-top bus for a 45-minute journey around the capital taking in some of the most famous sights including Big Ben, Trafalgar Square, the Coco-Cola London Eye as well as crossing the River Thames. The live commentary, designed specifically for younger kids, will guide you around the sights of London with fun stories and facts to bring the history of the city to life.

This non-stop tour is just long enough for the little ones to learn and discover more about the city, without giving them time to get figity in their seats. Even more so if you can bag yourselves seats on the open top floor so they can experience even more of London, but do note that seat allocations are on a first-come-first-serve basis. A very handy extra onboard the bus is the free WiFi, ideally not for purposes to keep the kids entertained but so you can take and share photos and videos of your day out with family and friends in the moment!

Best for: Younger children; those aged 5 years+
