Offered as a private hire or when special events/road closures divert us away from our Westminster route.
A bus on the land, a boat in the river and now your very own yellow time machine! Let us take you around original London, or Londinium, as the Romans renamed it over 2000 years ago. An ancient city, packed with layer upon layer of history, drama and world renowned landmarks!
To start we’ll give you one of the best views in London – the sweep of the Thames seen from Waterloo Bridge. Then we’ll whisk you past Covent Garden and along the elegant thoroughfare of Fleet Street, birthplace of British journalism, the Royal Courts of Justice and home of the infamous demon barber Sweeney Todd! Then we’ll waddle up Ludgate Hill to Wren’s magnificent domed masterpiece St Paul’s Cathedral. This is the heart of the city where fire and finance rub shoulders: the Great Fire of London started here in 1666, right beside the Bank of England and Royal Exchange, where Bankers have traded and schemed for centuries.
And then over London Bridge into Southwark, once notorious as haven for theatre, vice and general after hours naughtiness! This is the stomping ground of the Great Bard himself, Shakespeare and the location of some of Dickens most famous works! Admire the mighty Tower Bridge and HMS Belfast before heading past the Imperial War Museum to James Bond’s HQ, MI6 for our Splashdown….nobody does it better!
