Heritage Bus

by virtualpierroro

I've heard about Heritage Bus and Route 9 and Route 15...but that's about it!
What type of bus is it?
What is route 9? route 15?
Can I use this bus with a Travelcard?
Where can we take this bus?

Thanks in advance.......just a little more than 1 week!!!Yes!

Re: Heritage Bus

by leics

It's the classic red double-decker bus which used to be the norm in London.

They still run on routes 9 and 15, apparently.

Your travelcard will cover the fare....it's just an ordinary bus.

You can see route plans here:

www.tfl.gov.uk/assets/downloads/central_bus_map.pdf

and can get detailed timetables and stops for routes 9 and 15 here:

http://www.tfl.gov.uk/gettingaround/

if you click 'Tube and bus' under 'timetables' and use the bus timetable - route number' searchbox.

Yes they still run those two lines - I was on number 9 over Easter. People wanted to keep some lines when the Routemasters were taken out of service indeed, and I think these two lines were picked since they pass a good few tourist attractions.

The Routemasters are different since the stairs are at the back of the more open bus and there is a conductor checking your tickets and not just the bus driver.

Yes I was in London last week and the old Routemaster buses are definitely used on route 15. The 9 and 15 are ordinary London bus routes that happen run past many major tourist attractions. When the London bus fleet was modernised between 2000 and 2005 it was decided to keep a small fleet of Routemaster buses active to operate them.

Here's a great route plan for using London buses (including the Nos 9 and 15) for a do-it-yourself sightseeing tour of London that will only cost you a One Day Travel Pass

I regularly use the number 15 bus from Tower Hill (Tower of London) through to Trafalgar square.I am not sure where it begins before the Tower.
It's good to sit upstairs and go through a busy part of Central London,passing St Pauls, Fleet street,The Old Bailey and the Strand.

Re: Heritage Bus

If you don't have a travelcard or an oyster card you will need to pre-purchase your ticket at a machine located by the bus stop before you hop on I believe cash single fares at GBP2 but if you have a travelcard its included or GBP1.10 deduction off your oyster card. The heritage routemaster buses have a conductor, be advised they can get packed I was recently shoved out the way by tourists wanting to get on. They intersperse the routemasters and regular buses on the same route

Travel Tips for London

The Eye of London...

by peitsing

There is just something about London that mesmerizes me....

Lots may say that London is dreary, gloomy, wet etc etc, but somehow or other, I just simply luv it.. for no reason in particular...

Oh.. my tips are, erm...
- take time to hop into one of those red double deckers..
- make calls to close ones from the cute and quaint red public phones
and jump into the LondonEye if you have money to spare coz from my personal opinion, it may be a little bit overhyped... sorry, folks! Great view tho....... Exploring the London Bridge by my lone self and makin numerous loo trips due to food poisonin... hehe

Beauty is in the detail

by dinhyen

London is an architecture lover's all-you-can-eat buffet. At first glance this may appear to be a highly decorated entrance. But actually it's part of the north wall inside the Museum of Natural History, one of the many architectural gems that abound in this great city.

Little Venice

by draguza

Little Venice is one of the prettiest parts of London:

it is the name given to the junction between a canal leading to the Paddington basin, next to the London railway station by the same name, and the Regent's canal. The canal was opened in 1801. It forms a triangular basin with a little islet, hence the reference to Venice. The gardens near the islet are now named after Rembrandt with a reference to another Venice, Amsterdam which shares with Stockholm the appellation of Venice of the North.
Little Venice can be easily reached by Warwick Avenue Underground Station or by car from Marble Arch going northwards through Edgware Road and turning left after a mile in Maida Avenue.

Greenwich...

by rickyvilla81

Visit Greenwich. Not only is it the home of the Meridian and the Dome (ha! closed now, what a joke!) but it is a vibrant area with a nice atmosphere. It's also a lot easier to reach now. Greenwich park is great for a day out, as there are fabulous views over Docklands and London. Aaah, I've lived here for 25 years, where can I begin? The fireworks on Millennium Eve were pretty special, even if a lot of them didn't work. Got very squashed, but London had a good night that night.

British Music

by lolitajane

Many of the most important Rock n' Roll bands are from Great Britain. In the Sixties, the music of THE ROLLING STONES (as well as that of The Beatles' too) made a difference and nothing's been the same since then. The Stones are the Greatest Rock n' Roll band, in my opinion, for what they've done and for what they're up to now: 40 years of Rock n'Roll!!!
I must admit I was really disappointed when I found no Stones memorabilia shops in London, I had expected to find lots of merchandising shops but actually I think didn't come accross any. At least I had the chance of having dinner at Sticky Fingers Cafe (see restaurant tip for information) and I could pick up a napkin & take some pics!
