Create your tour
London’s vast public transport system allows for a lot of flexibility when travelling. It can also be utilised as a cheap and personalised tour! If you spend a bit of time studying bus routes and landmarks, you can create your tour, getting on and off to explore as you please. If you’re a cinema fanatic, route 24 takes you along a few locations you may recognise from famous films.
Route 11 and 15 go straight through the most iconic areas of London if you want to tick off the big spots off your tourism list. If a boozy tour is more your thing, route 9 hits a lot of highly-rated bars and pubs. The first route ever created was route 205, so why not hit that up before taking route 100 along the older cobbled streets of London. If you want a peek at a life of luxury, take route 74. Or, if you want to take in the grandeur of The Thames, hope on route RV1.
