About the tour

All aboard! Have you ever ridden an iconic double-decker bus through London? Whether you are a first-time rider or want to take a trip down memory lane, this is your opportunity - no fare neccessary. Charley, a bus fan and former official sightseeing bus tour guide will bring residential streets, landmarks, and transport trivia to life from the top-deck. The route and bus number will vary from tour to tour, so return riders are very welcome.

Meet Charley London

Charley London

London is a potpourri of different cultures - more than a third of the city's population is foreign-born. Charley fell in love with London as a teenager and always enjoyed showing her city to others. Her first job out of University was guiding on the open-top buses. And since then, there has been no turning back. After 6 years of guiding across major tour companies (EF, BBC, and secret food tours), she decided to kickstart her own venture. On her tours, you might just find yourself bumping into a surprise. "I had a lookalike of Prince William on my bus! People thought it was the real one," she laughs. The surprises don't stop there. "I introduce people to landlords of my favourite pubs and prioritize family-owned local business over the popular chain businesses," Charley quips. For Charley, drinking in the Beefeater's secret pub within the Tower of London features as one of her best experiences in the city. She's wearing multiple hats, working part-time selling ham and cheese at Borough Market (London's oldest and best food market), while studying to be a psychotherapist. Whoever said you can't have it all?

I can't wait to return to London (thinking positive here) and put into practice everything Charley is teaching me about riding the buses. This is such a fun way of seeing London and I feel like I am getting my bearings every time I do another tour.

Charley is a personable and engaging host. I enjoyed the tour. I always ride the city buses in London and especially enjoy the double decker tour buses. The only drawbacks to this tour were we waited for quite a while for the bus to arrive and the windows were dirty and that we couldn’t see some of the sights.

Another exciting bus ride with Charley from Elephant and Castle to Hampstead. Always lots to see from the front seat of a bus.
