One last full day in London meant it was time to throw discretion to the wind and assume the role of über tourist in order to hit enough landmarks and attractions to feel like we really “saw” the city. The most efficient method we found was, by far and away, the hop-on-hop-off bus tours. For £50 or so we could get on and off as many times as we wanted all day long, and the routes hit all the highlights as well as had stops not too far from our hotel. Bingo. If I owned a fanny pack, it would have been in its glory.
The entire day consisted of enjoying the top-deck of classic red double decker buses, firing away with my camera, enjoying some colorful commentary by the guides of all shapes and sizes, and hopping off at the best spots. We ate a picnic lunch in Green Park near Buckingham Palace, dinner at The White Lion around the corner from Covent Gardens, and had a brilliant day. Without attention to chronology, here are some of the best and most interesting photos.
