Best Night Bus Tours in London for Sightseeing

London’s double-decker buses are about as iconic as Buckingham Palace and Big Ben. These vehicles serve a dual purpose. From a practical point of view, they ferry Londoners to their offices and transport tourists around the city without breaking the bank. Other buses exist purely for sightseeing, complete with open-top decks, guided commentary, and sightseeing-focused routes. During your stay at Central Park London, hop aboard a sightseeing bus at night and bask in the glory of the illuminated capital!

Are London Night Bus Tours Worth It?

London tourist buses are an excellent way to see the capital’s landmarks. The routes are thoughtfully planned while the buses provide a high standard of comfort. While you are in transit, a professional guide will provide informative narration about the sights.

If you encounter rainy or cold weather, you are protected from the elements without sacrificing your sightseeing ambitions.

Furthermore, this is a relaxing way to experience the city at night. These tours are a particularly suitable activity for guests of Central Park London with kids. This way, the littlest travellers can see the splendid sights without wearing out their feet. 

It’s important to note that sightseeing buses in London do not include scheduled stops. The tours are focused on enjoying the views from the bus.

During the months of May, June, July, and August, it may still be light and not completely dark on the earlier tours.
