Dear customers,

From Sunday 15th April until Monday 23rd April 2018 there will be some road restrictions as London will be welcoming Commonwealth Heads of State for the Queen's Birthday.

The road restrictions will be as follows:

  • The Piccadilly eastbound slip road from Hyde Park Corner will be closed from the 15th - 23rd April.
  • Barriers will be in place between Curzon Street and Hyde Park Corner so bus lanes will be closed until 22nd April 2018.
  • Eastbound red buses may be subject to delays on Park Lane (southbound) because of bus lane closures.
  • Eastbound red buses may also be subject to rerouting between stops 5 & 6. This is dependent on the day.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience these amendments may cause. Please feel welcome to contact us if you have any questions.

Warm regards,

The Big Bus Tours London Team.
