Let’s run through some of the things you can see on your tour of London.
Oxford Street is probably the most famous destination in London for shoppers. This street has more than 300 outlets as well as flagship stores for numerous companies. You can go to the gigantic Selfridges store which has over 100 departments over 6 customer floors or you can find big brands all in one place at department stores like House of Fraser.
A short walk down Oxford Street allows you to check out the latest style and trends at multiple high-end and bargain fashion outlets, with names by top designers. Make it exciting if you have your kids with you and explore all kinds of toys at The Disney Store or the world-famous Hamleys toy store which is a short walk across the equally famous Regent Street.
Camden Town delights with its bohemian and altogether edgier feel and features six of the most popular markets in London that are open every day of the week and spread across a number of streets, the canal, and in fantastic historic stables. This vibrant area features an eclectic mix of stores and stalls selling vintage, original fashion, hand-crafted accessories, unique gifts and everything in between.
A fashion lover's delight and an icon for those who are into retro fashion or just love a bargain.
We can include shopping stops as part of your tour itinerary or you can book a tour that's focused on London shopping. There is plenty of room on your hire coach for the shopping bags, so treat yourself.
The Royal buildings are often first on the list of many people's requests when booking coach or minibus hire in London for a tour and you will see why.
The Tower Of London is a wonderful historic ex Royal Palace and Castle and along with Tower Bridge is, without doubt, one of the most recognisable landmarks in the world. Situated on the banks of the river Thames you can explore history and culture, visit the crown jewels and then watch the spectacle of the raising of Tower Bridge to allow large boat passage.
Buckingham Palace is the most famous palace in the world. The Palace is now the official residence of King Charles, having been home to Britain's longest-reigning monarch Queen Elizabeth II for many decades. It is a popular tourist attraction and they also offer tours of staterooms and gardens. The Palace has served as the official London residence of the UK's Royal Family since 1837 and is still the administrative headquarters of the British Monarchy today.
As your hire coach or minibus glides up The Mall and you get your first glimpse of Buckingham Palace, it will be a sight you will always remember.
The London Eye takes you from the ancient to the modern London of today and offers a complete change of pace and perspective.
The gigantic wheel is over 400 feet high and affords its passengers a breathtaking view across London where you can see much of the ancient city as well as the sparkling new editions, all in air-conditioned comfort.
Once you climb on board the London Eye, the journey takes 30 minutes to complete one rotation so you have plenty of time to enjoy the fantastic views in both directions along the Thames.
Add on to this almost endless list, places like St Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and Westminster and Trafalgar Square to name but a few.
But don't think of London as nothing other than a concrete jungle. The City has some of the loveliest parks and gardens in Britain and you could add Kew Gardens to your London Coach hire tour itinerary or the fabulous Japanese Kyoto Garden in Holland Park which offers a beautiful glimpse of a Japanese-style landscape and is a perfect place to relax with a picnic.

The fabulous West End has restaurants from almost every country on the globe, covering everything from 5* formal dining to a burger on a park bench.
Or you could really get into the London spirit and your coach can whisk you all over to the East End for you to try London's famous Pie And Mash. It's a traditional meal for Londoners, and be prepared to have a big serving of parsley liquor poured over your dinner.
We can drop you over to Borough Market and Tabard Street for you to explore the street food, to Southall for Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine or have a leisurely stop at one of London's famous Thameside pubs and watch the boats drift along as you enjoy traditional fayre.
