May Day March & Rally - Monday 1 May, 2017

Dear customers,

The May Day March & Rally will be taking place on Monday 1 May, 2017. Services on all routes will run as normal, but will be subject to possible diversions in certain areas between 1:30pm and 4:00pm.

The following stops will be inaccessible:

  • Red Route stops: Customers will be unable to board from Stop #15: Covent Garden, until Aldwych reopens.
  • Green Link stops: Customers will be unable to board from Stops #44 - 51, until Aldwych reopens.
  • Blue Route: Customers will be unable to board from Stop #15: Covent Garden, until Aldwych reopens.

For customers heading eastbound (towards Tower Bridge) the nearest stop to Aldwych/Covent Garden on the Red/Blue route will be stop 14. For those heading northbound (to Kings Cross) the Green route will be serving Stop 5 of the Red and Blue route.

Unfortunately we don't have any control over these road closures, but we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience the subsequent stop closures and route diversions may cause. We will do our best to ensure you still enjoy your time on board with Big Bus Tours exploring the best of London. If you have any questions, please feel welcome to contact us.

Warm regards,

The Big Bus Tours London Team.
