Big Bus Tour

by killerpinescones

How does the Big Bus Tour work?
Do you have to ride the bus the entire time?
Or can you get off at any given time?

Re: Big Bus Tour

by sufr54

Yes you can on certain tours, check out this url and go to frequent questions towards the bottom.

There are a couple of hop on/hop off bus companies in London including the Big Bus. You can get off at any of the stops on their route (check the website), see what you want to see, and get back on to the next stop you at which you want to get off. You can also stay on for the entire route. You can get on and off as many times as you want during your ticket time - which is usually 24 hours.

The two hop-on, hop-off tour companies in London.....Big Bus and the Original tour.... allow you to get on and off at set points along their routes. That is their purpose. The Original tour runs four routes, Big Bus three:

As noted, you can use tickets only within a set time-period.

Travel Tips for London

London Tip

by 7susie

My fondest memory of visiting south of England in summer is: it is really really hard to get an B&B if you are late....ever slept with three persons in a Jeep during a heavy-rain night???
There are lots of festivals in July and August and nearly all B&B's and hotels are booked.
So keep looking to check in early (best before 3pm) or make an reservation in advance!!!

by Zem

I just like pictures which has people (one person or more)i dont really like 'common' pics like this. It would have made by anyone. For excample an actor would have made it much better than I but ive thought its one of the things i have to do it like a picture. I dont know what does it show....oh i just dont know the word 'õrségváltás' in English but i dont care too much. I aint a too big jerk but i just think its not so important to know cos everybody know what's it. ....the solders....change places....awk! anyway! ya know...im sure. So this is one of these things but it wasnt the biggest well it wasnt a thing either . There were toooooooooo many tourists and we didnt see almost anything. But we know: it aint a big deal. London has many more places these has much more interesting sightseeing or experiences that this one.

by shrimp56

Visit Trafalgar Square -- they've banned feeding the pigeons I hear, but there is still plenty of life left! This picture was taken in March 2000 -- they change the [modern] sculpture on the far pedastal every few months or so -- the latest one looked like glass bricks to me!
.
The National Gallery of Art is the building at the back of the picture.

The Knowledge.

by leics

Drivers of black London taxis ('Hackney carriages', the type you can hail in the street) must have 'The Knowledge'.

They can't get a taxi licence without it.

Getting The Knowledge takes 2 to 4 years. Yes, years.

For All-London Knowledge a driver has to know 321 routes within a 6-mile radius of Charing Cross, and about landmarks and places of interest along the way.

As well as knowing all the street names, one-way streets, lanes changes and short-cuts.

For the lesser 'Suburban Knowledge' a diver needs to know only 30-51 routes, landmarks and places of interest.......but can only work within his designated area.

There is a test. Fail it, and you won't get a licence.

So you will see them at weekends, these men (mostly) who are trying to learn 'The Knowledge'. They will be riding and re-riding the streets on central London, usually on scooters or mopeds, with a clipboard of streetnames and information stuck in front of them. They are usually seen at weekends because, of course, you don't get paid whilst you are learnig so they need another job in the week.

Impressive, eh?

Peanut butter, Hershey's Kisses and deodorant!

by shutterlust

Bring a bag that zips closed and doesn't just have a single snap in the middle, leaving the rest of the bag open. There ARE cases of pickpockets so keep it under your arm and don't be a floozy. Also, a roller suitcase that you KNOW you can carry up and down stairs (metro stairs...assuming you take the metro from Heathrow airport) If you take a rollersuitcase, make sure your bag either slings over your body so your hands are free to carry your bag. Wear comfortable shoes, ladies. I seriously grew up wearing heels (wearing sneakers everywhere was a no-no with my lady-like mother) and I brought all heels with me. However, heels and COBBLESTONES do not mix. (Horrid memories of trips to D.C. in heels...heels and gravel...::shudder:) Bring lady-like flats (from JCrew or otherwise). They go with pants, skirts and you still look cute. Make sure you get arch support ot padding from Boots or something because you will be doing a lot of walking on hard cement/cobblestones/the very bumpy non-skid area which is found on every corner in London. Flats all the way! Bring your own deodorant. They don't make a lot of American deodorants here and I know of too many cases where people have to study here for 6 months or so and only have one thing of deodorant. Bring it and you will feel right at home. Also, any make-up, lotions, and medicines that you don't think are available in London. The medicines here (ie. cough syrups or tylenol) are called different things here, so come prepared with things you know that work on you (like your favorite cough drop) because you never know if you can find it here. I was sick when I first arrived and thank god my mother made me bring tons of tylenol, cough drops, and vitamin C candies with me. Some digital camera battery chargers do not have flexible voltage. You need to get a voltage CONVERTER (or TRANSFORMER) for this. YOU CANNNOT USE AN ADAPTOR (which you might use on a laptop comptuer) because your appliance will BLOW UP. Make sure it transforms the voltage to the appropriate settings. If you're going to be here awhile, bring your favorite foods because they will most likely not be available here (ie Goldfish crackers and PEANUT BUTTER). Also, they don't have Hershey's chocolate here, so bring a couple bags of Hershey's chocolate kisses or something and you can use it to give as presents to locals or to bribe airport officials. It's a very rare commodity here and has helped me in more ways than one...plus, it's always great to snack on during that "time of the month." Tee Hee! Sorry! TMI! :-P
