Hop on a regular London bus and let your phone be your tour guide! The Window Seat Guide app tells you the stories behind some of London’s best known sights but also uncovers the hidden gems and lets you discover new areas of the city. Travel like a local but transform an ordinary journey into a truly immersive and entertaining experience.

Features include
• Detailed maps and instructions for getting to the start of the route
• Location enabled audio commentary throughout the bus route - no need to keep an eye on the screen, just look out of the window!
• Manual replay of any part of the commentary - never miss out on something interesting
• Suggestions for things to do before getting on the bus and after finishing the tour

You can do the whole route in one go, or hop off at any stop to explore on foot and get back on a bus again later.

Buy your bus ticket through TfL as usual. See the Ticket Information page within the app for more details.

New for 2021 – We are now also adding a few select walking tours, including the Windsor Walking Tour.

Please note:
Avoid roaming and data charges by downloading the app and your tour while on Wi-Fi. The tour runs off-line but you must ensure your GPS is on for the geo-location to work. If the app is still running in the background it will continue to use battery power so make sure to close it when you don’t need it.
