I like this map for the tourist routes, it does look like bus 11 passes by many of the major attractions

Re: What is the best bus route to see London

When we where there last year, we used an outfit called "The Big Bus Company", on our first full day in London. It was a great way to orientate ourselves, as it took us all round central London, taking in all the important sites. You can get on and off the bus as you please, as long as you use their designated stops, which are quite frequent.
A Thames River cruise was also included in the ticket price, if I recall correctly.
I believe that there are other companies doing something similar, so have a good look around.
As we where still getting over our haul from Singapore, it was ideal to just sit back and chill out.

Re: What is the best bus route to see London

There are two companies than run special 'hop on/hop off' sightseeing bus tours:

The Original London Sightseeing Tour: http://www.theoriginaltour.com/

And

Big Bus: http://www.bigbustours.com/eng/london/default.aspx

Both appear to include a river cruise in the ticket price, but they are much more expensive than taking a normal London bus. (e.g. a one-day travelcard for zones 1-2 costs £7.20 for travel on all buses, tubes and the DLR. An off-peak ticket for travel after 9.30 a.m. costs £5.60), compared with over £20 for a hop on/hop off bus.

A river cruise is a great way to see the city too. A single ticket from the Tower to Westminster with Thames Cruises costs £6.90. http://www.citycruises.com/rrrinfo.php

Travel Tips for London

Walking through..

by tomeek

walk and I mean WALK through it! Sure, you can take a bus tour with a guide telling you this or that but if you really want to SEE things, just walk...its not that big, in less than one week I walked the centre and seen all the famous places. Surprisingly, I was tanned during my London walks! It was April, early Spring, and even if the UK climate is not really famous by its sunny and warm days, my week was just about that! No single drop of rain! Here on this pic you can see the blooming roses in Hyde Park..lots of greens and flowers!

William III at Kensington Palace

by littlesam1

As I mentioned in my Kensington Palace tip, we really enjoyed out tour of Kensington Palace more than our tour of Buckingham Palace. I think it must have had a lot to do with the memory of Princess Di living here. But also Kensington Palace seemed to be more open and welcoming. Here is a picture of a memorial to William III at Kensington Palace. I definately recommend a tour of Kensington Palace to anyone visiting London.

Law Courts (Royal Courts of Justice)

by yooperprof

Famous from 145 different films or television mini-series set in London and dealing with the difficult path from Crime to Punishment, the Law Courts are a symbol of Britain's pride in its Common Law traditions. Architect G.E. Street designed the building in the 1870s as a Gothic Palace in its own way every bit as magnificent as the Palace of Parliament. Here are 64 courts, 7 miles of corridor, and over 1000 rooms.

The main entrance to the Courts is off the Strand, but my photo shows the Carey Street side.

STEREOTYPES DO NOT WORK

by trotador

**It is known, at least in Spain, English people is so rude. For example when asking people for directions.
I asked people a lot of times too many diferent things and they tryed hard to figure out the answer politely.
**The English humor is another world. HAVE A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR THAT WILL HELP YOU

Raindrops might well fall on your head!

by scottishvisitor

An Umbrella might be needed, although depending on where you are when it rains, you might not be able to open it due to congested streets.
Good walking shoes are essential if like me you prefer to walk & see different things walking London Streets. Make sure you have plenty of memory in your camera - the cost of disposable cameras near major attractions are sky high.
