No. This is to make sure that you can see all the sights of London, with the best views and information, without having to traipse around all day.
You don’t have to – you can pre-book either online or by calling our office, or you can buy with one of our street team 15 minutes before the tour, we advise giving us a quick call to check availability for the day for walk up purchases.
Due to the classic design of the Routemaster buses, wheelchairs can only be brought on board if they can be folded and placed beside the seats, and the passenger is able to sit on one of our seats.
We run everyday at 12:05, 14:10 and 16:10 with additional tours running during school holidays.
So long as the pram can be folded you can definitely bring it on board. As for the luggage if it’s quiet you’re welcome to bring it on board with you and keep it with you for the journey.
