Take a Big Bus Tour This Easter…
Orient yourself with some of the City’s best landmarks and fall in love with London as you see her at her best. There’s a reason why London is crowned one of the world’s best cities and it’s packed full of things to do, to see, to eat even the pigeons are happy.
We’ve put together a quick list of the Top 5 things to pack when taking in the sites on a Big Bus Tour:
Light rain coat
The UK isn’t well known for being rainy for no reason. Us Brits are used to a few showers and the occasional downpour and we love the diversity our weather brings. Be sure to pack a light raincoat just in case you get caught short at the attractions. April is such a beautiful month with sunnier skies but it’s a good idea to pack for all weather, just in case.
Comfortable shoes for walking
With so much to see in this beautiful city, you’ll be wanting to hop on and off the bus to take in the sights at every opportunity. Wearing high heels or shoes that aren’t made for walking a lot will leave you focussed on your feet rather than on the wonderful sights.
Plenty of snacks
Sight-seeing in any city is hungry work so be sure to pack lots of snacks to keep your energy levels at their maximum. Of course, you’ll be stopping off but it will be cheaper all round to buy snacks at the supermarket than to get them at small shops in tourist destinations.
All smartphones these days have a pretty cool camera, packing a disposable just in case your battery runs out is a smart move. You don’t want to miss out the important bits.
Your sense of humour
Last but not least, the City is an incredible place with fun things to uncover around every corner. Keeping your sense of humour in traffic and as you wind through the crowds at popular tourist spots is a must. You get the best out of any experience when in a positive mood.
