Whether you are looking to go sightseeing in London or just want to do something different with your family, this London bus tour is a wonderful way to experience the sights and sounds of the capital. This 90-minute London night bus tour will take you to the city’s major landmarks all beautifully lit up in the night sky.

A view from Westminster Bridge of the London Eye lit up at night.

Starting at Green Park, the tour will take you past the Wellington Arch, which is set in the heart of royal London, before taking you to see Buckingham Palace at night. It’s always extra special seeing the Queen’s residency without the crowds in front. Little adventures will love seeing the Thames’ sparking reflections as you cross the river and enjoy stunning views of the famous Big Ben and Houses of Parliament. Get a glimpse of the historical Tower of London and iconic Tower Bridge, and marvel at the neon lights and the buzzing crowds of Piccadilly. You'll pass Harrods, which is lit up with 12,000 light bulbs! Did you know that 300 need to be changed each day?

You will also see the Royal Albert Hall, the Natural History Museum, the London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Kensington Palace and Westminster Abbey. Don’t forget to take some snaps! See how far into the distance you can see on a clearer night; often you can even see past the twinkling lights of Canary Wharf.
