Experience the pomp and fanfare during the must-see Changing of the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace, check out where the Beatles and Rolling Stones used to play on the Rock 'n' Roll Walk, or hear the ghastly tales of London's most notorious murderer during the Jack the Ripper Walk.

If you tire of the road, why not head down to the river?

Have to get the London Central via train to start hop on hop off

My only complaint is you have to go so far to get on and needed to find a train to get to where the bus main place is. I tried emailing twice to the original london hop on hop off and tried calling tem numerous times to see whether i could get on closer to my accomodation. No one anwered my emails or my phone calls,

If you've never been to London then taking the ride and the cruise are worth it.

Nice way to explore London!

If you are in a hurry and don't have time to walk around London I recommend you to take this tour. Me and my friend were interrailing and had just one day in London so this tour was like made for us. We also took the boat trip. The live guide was funny and friendly.
