Marilyn JonesAt the end of my adventures in England, I had only one afternoon to explore London before flying home the next day. I was amazed at everything I was able to see in a short amount of time.

I chose a hotel in the heart of the city, which gave me additional time that I would have spent just getting into the city from an airport hotel. I walked from my hotel to the closest Original London Sightseeing Tour bus stop. No matter what major city I am visiting, I always take one of the hop-on, hop-off buses for the narrative as well as the ease of navigation.

Aboard this classic double-decker tour bus, I settled in to listen to the onboard tour guide point out major sites as well as tidbits like where J.K. Rowling lives and Princess Kate shops for Prince George’s clothes. Past Buckingham Palace, St. Paul’s Cathedral and Big Ben the bus made its way through traffic.

Just after crossing Tower Bridge, I left the bus at the Tower of London in order to board a Thames River cruise that was included with my bus ticket. Beginning at the Tower of London, the boat passed in full view of Tower Bridge, Big Ben and Houses of Parliament, and EDF Energy London Eye soaring 442 feet above the city.
