    Loved this attraction

    The 5 adults and 2 young children in our group all enjoyed the hop on hop off bus. We did a couple of trips throughout the day and had 2 different drivers both of which were very informative giving a wonderful commentary. Coming from London myself it was also a great day to reminisce.
