I’ve been on a lot of buses, from London to Patagonia buses seem to be the way the world travels. London’s double decker varietals are somewhat of a tourist attraction in addition to being transportation around the city. Double decker tours seem to have sprouted up in every major city around the world- the familiar red domed roof often replaced with open-air seating.
Interestingly enough the British aren’t the only ones with the double decker buses for transportation purposes, we traveled on two story coach buses in Argentina and Peru – they were some of the nicest buses we booked tickets on!
In the words of British statesman William Gladstone, “The way to see London is from the top of a bus.” After all, what’s more iconic than the London Double Decker?

IF YOU GO: There’s loads to do in London besides ride the bus, but I’d definitely try to include one or two bus trips on your journey. Strike up a conversation with someone or just look out the window – buses often go through neighborhoods you’d never find on your own. London is a popular tourist destination so don’t forget to book a hotel in London before you go.
