Red Buses were easy to use. Well maintained and well marked. Great way to get around. Cashless, but Oyster cards are easy to get.

If you are looking for a fun way to see London, jumping on a bus and sitting in the top front seat is one of the best options. It is tricky figuring out how to pay and the drivers are not that friendly but it...More
