London comes newly alive at night, like all truly great cities. After hours, Londoners turn their city into a playground. Take a sightseeing tour by night to see this great city with new eyes. As the lights come on you'll experience London from an open top bus seeing all of the sights with a live English language tour expert, or your choice of multilingual electronic guides.
The Palace of Westminster is spectacularly lit up, its neo-Gothic splendour at its very best reflected in the mighty River Thames, with its clock tower, housing the Big Ben bell, a true highlight. Piccadilly Circus is justifiably world famous for its high-tech electronic advertisements, among the first in the world when they were first installed in 1910. From your top deck seat, you'll see these signs illuminate the bustle of night time London.
The renowned dome of St Paul's Cathedral is best seen dramatically lit, reminding us all of its long-standing role as one of London's best-loved symbols, an emblem of London's survival of the bombing of World War II. And of course there's Buckingham Palace, London home of the Queen herself, with spotlights trained on the famous facade behind which the night-time business of royalty - including state banquets - is conducted as your bus drives past.
