Megabus have made it easier (and a hell of a lot cheaper) to explore London by introducing a new, low-cost sightseeing service.
Megabus have just launched their very first sightseeing bus service, which takes you past all of the best-known parts of the city, including the London Eye, Big Ben and Tower Bridge, from just 2p a sight.
With prices starting at just £1 a seat, you’ll be taken on a two hour trip across London, squeezing in fifty major sights along the road. Get your cameras at the ready though, because the only thing this bus is stopping for is traffic lights (or so I’d hope). It’s unlike any other sightseeing tour so far, as they all tend to operate on a ‘hop-on, hop-off’ basis and start at around £25 a ticket. Instead, Megabus have started the hip, new trend of ‘hop-on, stay-on’*.
You can now tick off your London Sightseeing Bucket List (I’m sure it exists) in one fell swoop, and you don’t need to spend a fortune doing it, either. These new sightseeing tours are perfect for tourists, born and bred Londoners, or Instagrammers looking for that ideal city snap. (It’s particularly good if you want that famous shot from underneath Tower Bridge, but don’t fancy risking your life by standing in the middle of the road to capture it.)
Tours depart every hour from three different locations across London (Park Lane, Tower Hill, and the London Eye), and they’ll run between 10am and 5pm each day. You can expect additional services during the busy seasons, too. Book your tickets on the Megabus website – and guarantee yourself a top deck spot, if you want it!
If you’d prefer to explore the city by foot, take a look at this super efficient walking tour. It was created by an ambitious Redditor, who reckons you can do it in just two hours. Why not give it a try?
*Not forever, of course. That would be daft.
