Christmas Lights Bus Tour

Christmas Lights Tour

With its twinkling lights and spectacular window displays, London is at its most magical during the festive season. From the iconic Oxford Street lights to Harvey Nichols’ lime green Christmas tableau, the capital lights up – and where more fitting to witness the magic than from the top of a 50-year old vintage red bus?

Harvey Nichols

The Christmas lights bus tour runs for two and half hours, with a guide providing an expert live commentary as you’re chauffeured round the city. Perfect for visitors enjoying a festive holiday in London, but equally fun for locals keen to get into the Christmas spirit, all while learning the ins and outs of their beloved city.

London’s Best Festive Window Displays

You’ll see the city’s best shopping districts illuminated against the winter night sky, including the world-famous Oxford Street, Regent Street and Knightsbridge. Journey past sensational window displays at London’s biggest department stores, from Selfridges to Fortnum & Mason, and catch the bright lights of Piccadilly Circus in all their glory. Keep an eye out for Trafalgar Square’s huge Christmas tree, stop for a photo at the London Eye and see panoramic views of landmarks like Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.
