Hop on Hop off Bus Tour

Your Hop on Hop off ticket allows you to board any of the tour routes at over 80 different stops, whether you require the Yellow Original Tour, with live English commentary or multilingual audio guide, the Blue Royal Borough Tour, or the Orange British Museum Tour, you are never far away from an Original Tour bus stop.

We recommend if it’s your first time to London to ride the bus for the complete tour, this takes approx 2.5 hours, but allows you an overview of the whole of this amazing city, and you can decide which places you wish to hop off at to take a closer look. When you’re ready to continue the tour, just wait by one of our bus stops, and hop on the next Original Tour bus. For our younger passengers we have Kid’s Club, they can listen to their own special commentary, where London is made into a story and they get a kid’s pack, which contains an activity/ quiz book and a passport which they can get stamped as they explore London.

Should you decide to start your tour in the afternoon, not a problem, your ticket is valid for 24 hours, so it will be valid until the same time the following day.

Hop on Hop off River Cruise Pass

Having a ticket for The Original Tour entitles you to enjoy a fabulous trip on the river Thames. You will be given your free river pass when you board the first tour bus, just take this to Westminster Pier or Tower Pier and hand it to a member of City Cruises Staff; you’re then free to hop on hop off the river cruise as you please. River passes are collected on your first river cruise, to use the river service again, just show your valid Original Tour bus ticket.

The London Dungeon

Why not visit the all new London dungeon, prepared to be scared as you go back in time and learn about some of London’s sinister characters, Guy Fawkes the gunpowder plotter, serial killer Jack the Ripper who use to prowl the east end of London looking for his victims, or the world famous barber Sweeney Todd.

Included there are two great rides, firstly a fast flowing boat ride, based around Henry VIII and his executions, and a deadly dark drop ride, which plunges guests 3 storeys in the dark. Meanwhile Jack's Whitechapel Labyrinth promises to have you screaming as you try to escape the Ripper in a confusing East End maze and a strangely fun journey through Balzelgette's Victorian Sewer system.

Escape The Great Fire of London

Mark the 350th anniversary of The Great Fire of London with a brand new multi-sensory experience. The streets sizzle and dance with flames, cooked pigeons fall from the sky and St Paul's burns to the ground. Guests will need their wits about them to escape unsinged.

The London Dungeon Tavern

The London Dungeon Tavern is now open and welcoming guests to enjoy a drink with a front row seat at the heart of this unique, storytelling experience.

Visitors will be transported back to a vibrant, decadent and dodgy Victorian pub of 1896. Included in the cost of entry, visitors will receive one drink at The London Dungeon Tavern. The choice of an Alcoholic (Draft Ale or Elderflower & Gin Cocktail) or Non-Alcoholic (Cola Slush or Cloudy Apple Juice) beverage is available.

Additional Information

Exchange your ticket at The London Dungeon box office where you will be allocated show time: this will be either the next available slot or a time-slot of your choice at a later time on the day.

"Had a great day on the bus tour, enjoyed the Thames river cruise and our visit to the London Dungeon, all for one great price!"

Three stars B.Norton - Streatham - 19/09/17

"Having been to London before, i wasn't too keen on going on the bus tour. I was totally surprised what i learnt from the guide, and how easy it was to hop on and off at different attractions. We took the river boat from Tower to Westminster pier, and then visited the London Dungeon. All in all, a great day."
