The Original Tour launches new route 

Late last summer, colleagues from all departments of The Original Tour started meeting in top-secret – they had one task…make sure The Original Tour’s sightseeing routes offer THE best network for discovering central London by bus

They worked long & hard, analysed 10 years of sales data, spoke to staff & clients on-board the bus, they discussed late into the evening & met up early in the morning…

The result of all the hard work – our new routes, a collaboration between The Original Tour & London City Tour, means we now offer:

  • Two main sightseeing tour routes (Yellow & Blue) which cover the east & west of the capital.
  • Better connections in the central areas to the two main routes – the routes also run in opposite directions in the busy areas of Piccadilly, Trafalgar Square & Westminster.
  • Clearer & more legible routing around key areas (e.g. Marble Arch, Trafalgar Square)
  • More frequent service in key hotel areas (Bayswater Road & Paddington specifically).
  • Fewer changes required to get into central London = more time to explore – our Blue Route is now a tour (rather than shuttle) which picks up from key hotel areas.
  • Better frequency at key hubs (Hyde Park, Marble Arch, Westminster Bridge).

Original Tour & London City Tour customers continue to be welcome on all buses and on all routes.
