So Dh has never been to London so this weekend we are going!
Saturday we will meet my friend have a meal and go on the London eye.
Sunday we will spend the day at the Natural history museum
Monday I want us to do a Bus tour of London - (comming home in the evening)
so which company should I choose  :-\
the big bus ??? or the London bus I think they are the choices,
Any hints or tips for the trip welcome, we are staying in Battersea ;)

Dont think there is much between them in reality - both seem to be quite good from reports from friends who have been on them.  A stop off at Vinopolis is well worth it - wine tasting venue (all very laid back - not posh but greta fun as long as you are not driving.  It costs about £10 and you can book online, with this you get drink sample vouchers.  Six vouchers gets you merry 10 lets you fall over!!

i agree both bus companies do the same trip and are always everywhere to be seen
i would just go for which ever is cheapest although they are prob the same too  ;D
enjoy your trip your love it
i was on a course yesterday right next to Tower Bridge, so impressive and worth going past on the bus

Enjoy

Hi hun

I can't really offer much in the way of advise re bus companies as I've not been on one.

The London Eye is great...I went in the evening and got to see the lights of London which is amazing...stunning views, especially if its a clear day/night.

Haven't been to the museums for years but they're always good fun.

If you get a chance, Borough Market, by London Bridge is really good....and if the weathers nice, it's always lovely to walk along the south embankment...down from the London Eye, past the Tate Modern and towards Tower Bridge where you'll see HMS Belfast......lots of lovely bars, cafes, restaurants, little galleries, shops etc....you go past The Globe (Shakespeares old theatre) & The Clink Jail/Prison Museum.

Don't know Battersea that well as I'm SE London (and work in City) and it's not somewhere I've really frequented......I have run round Battersea Park though for a charity run with work a few years ago ;D

You'll have a fabulous time...but then I'm biased being a Londoner ;)

N xx

Harrods is good, just for the novelty factor.

as My best friend still lives in London, we do drive down and see her, ( Ive only driven it once) but EVERY time I end up going past harrods after making a wrong turn, so its now a common Joke, so much so that my best make baught DH a keyring from there for Christmas!

we both love italian food! , so will have to find that esp as I know where I am on a 137 bus ;)

We will picnic in the park if its sunny!
