Big Bus Tour London

Big Bus Tour London

Posted on January 9, 2016

We recently went on the Big Bus Tour in London.

There were three tours around London: The red line, green line and blue line.


On the red tour we had a live commentator and I enjoyed the tour but we had to get off for a toilet break. This meant that we lost our guide/commentator which was a real shame because we really liked her.  She was very funny and told really bad jokes and made funny comments about London.  When we got back on a different bus, the driver and tour guide changed and our original guide changed to our bus again, YAY!!

The photo above is our lovely tour guide.  She was awesome!


The green was an pre-recorded tour and it took us to Kings Cross Station.  I was really excited to go to Kings Cross because it is the location of Platform 9 & 3/4.  I stood in line with mummy and ArgeySon for AGES to get a photo pushing my trolley through the barrier to platform 9 & 3/4.  After our photos we went into the Platform 9 & 3/4 shops and got some souvenirs.


The Blue tour was also a pre-recorded tour and I enjoyed it. But we got off for the Winston Churchill Cabinet War Rooms which was quite interesting.  I really liked looking at all of the rooms to see how they would have been when they had to stay underground during the war.  I also really liked the Winston Churchill museum.

After this, we went to St James’ Park.  My brother and I chased squirrels and daddy hand fed a goose some of his sandwich.  Mummy nearly screamed because she is scared of birds that chase you for food.

Then we got back on the tour bus and went to Harrods.  for those who don’t know, Harrods is a huge shop, mummy says it’s called a department store.  I think it is big, really good and has nice stuff.  To re-phrase, it has amazing stuff!  There were all of these food halls that were loaded with doughnuts and sweets.  I said to dad this must be what heaven looks like.  For anyone who loves sweet foods, go to London, go to Harrods and visit the food halls.

After Harrods we caught a bus back home.

    Thanks for writing about your travels. I love reading about what you, your family are doing. I think your brother must have been pretty excited to see all the places from dr who.
    I also love doing the bus tours when I go to a new city. I think it’s a really great way to find more our about a city and I learn the most interesting facts and history that I never knew before. Love you xxx
