Sightseeing Bus London Hire

Are you looking to hire one of our classic Routemaster double-decker buses for a private tour for your next occasion or event? If you want to embark on an unforgettable experience on your own sightseeing bus in London, we have exactly what you need.

Sightseeing in style on our London Bus Tours

When it comes to sightseeing bus tours, most big bus tours are held on an open-top bus that operates a hop-on hop-off system. That's not everyone's cup of tea (excuse the pun). So if you have something more sophisticated in mind, such as a wedding, hen party, baby shower, birthday, graduation, or corporate event, don't go for open-top sightseeing. Instead, let us take care of you and your guests.

Perfect if you want to explore the iconic landmarks and attractions of the City in style, our iconic Routemaster double-decker buses make for a unique and quirky sightseeing tour. We have Long-wheel and Classic Routemasters to choose from depending on your party size and individual requirements, so give us a call, and we can discuss the best option for you.

Customise your Route

When you hire one of our stunning Routemaster buses, you have full freedom to create your own sightseeing adventure. You can choose between one of our pick-up and drop-off points, where our friendly staff will ensure that your boarding experience is an easy and effortless process.

Unlike hop-on hop-off bus tours, when you choose Brigit's Bakery as the sightseeing London bus tour for your private occasion or event, you can also select the London landmarks you wish to drive past and see. Our flexible routes cater to your individual interests, allowing you to create a fully personalised itinerary for your group.

Picture this. You're sitting on a breathtaking red double-decker bus (one that gets the attention of the crowds) and cruising past the iconic and majestic Big Ben, catching glimpses of the majestic London Eye, crossing the historic Tower Bridge, and admiring the grandeur of the Tower of London. As you journey along the Thames River (on a bus rather than a river cruise), you can navigate your way to Westminster Pier, marveling at the impressive architecture. And, of course, no trip would be complete without a glimpse of Buckingham Palace - a true symbol of British heritage.

With Brigit's Bakery, the sightseeing experience for your private event and party becomes entirely customisable so you can enjoy an exceptional and personalised adventure through the heart of London.
