Description

This December, in solidarity with Ukraine, and to support continued relief, aid and assistance efforts, Contamination Zone is pleased to offer this unique opportunity to discover London’s amazing Christmas light displays onboard a restored classic Routemaster bus with a professional English and Ukrainian speaking guide.

This exclusive tour will take you right through the heart of the city, and you’ll see the most iconic landmarks and locations that any visitor should see whilst in here.

In the run up to Christmas you’ll see how the city comes to life and illuminates the night sky with thousands upon thousands of sparkling lights and Christmas displays. 

Meeting at Victoria Coach Station, we will depart and within a few minutes see Hyde Park Corner, Marble Arch, and turn into Bond Street.

As we drive down Oxford Street and Regent Street, see how the world-famous shops are covered with holly, ivy, and some of the most spectacular illuminations imaginable.

Take photos of Piccadilly Circus in its festive glory and then we move on to Trafalgar Square where we will see London’s huge Christmas tree.

A friendly Ukrainian/English speaking guide will entertain you with fascinating facts and stories about London as you pass through the streets and buildings packed full of history. And with plenty of opportunities for impressive night time photography, this is the perfect chance to see the city at its dazzling best. A visual feast that will fill you with Christmas cheer!

We continue our tour of London, driving down Strand and Aldwych, past St Paul’s Cathedral and the Bank of England, before seeing the Tower of London and driving over the world famous Tower Bridge.

After our short time on the South Bank, we return to the North Bank by crossing London Bridge, then we drive along Blackfriars, Embankment, see the London Eye, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and returning to Victoria Coach Station.

With a mixture of iconic London sightseeing, soaking in the city’s most famous locations, and some of the UK’s most beautiful Christmas light displays – you will be in for an absolute festive treat!

The entire crew are contributing their time and professional services for free in order to put on this event, and help raise money for a country we all love.
