A simple way to see all of London’s top sights


Perhaps you’re considering different ideas on how to best enjoy the city of London in the limited days you have available. If it were up to you, you would choose to stay in the town for at least a week – but life doesn’t always serve up exactly what we want.

If you only have a weekend break to enjoy the city, then consider taking a hop-on-hop-off bus tour. With almost 100 stops, and six different routes; you’ll be able to traverse across and explore some of the most sought after destinations in the capital. Those who purchase a 24-hour pass will automatically be privy to an extra 24 hours for free. Additionally, an open river Thames boat ride will also be included.

London after dark offers a similar bus experience in a shorter time frame of 1h45mins, during the night time. The twilight tour offers a unique perspective of attractions such as the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Trafalgar Square, and Buckingham Palace.

If you’re looking for an immersive experience that brings together the old and new side of the capital in one easy fix, then consider The Spirit of London – Full day tour with Free lunch. Tickets start at £90 and include admission to the Towers of London, St Pauls Cathedral, a walking tour of Greenwich, transportation by a luxury air-conditioned coach, and complimentary pickup from over 80 central boutique hotels in London.

So what are you waiting for? While you’ll obviously have a more immersive experience if you stay longer than a couple of days, something is better than nothing. And in fact, that “something” can often be more special than we’d ever imagine. That’s down to both the offerings of the city and the fact that we naturally appreciate our days on holiday a little more when they’re fewer in number.

Book your short stay in London this season, and have an experience like no other.
