So we have been on the red buses all over the world but never in our hometown so we went on it as a bit of fun. Doesn't run too often so check timetable. Only £8 so a nice way to fill an afternoon. Learned...More

Nowhere on the City Sightseeing website did it give the exact start address or the timetable. The hop-on hop-off bus runs 7 days a week from Bewick street near Central Station. Open-top double-decker buses run from 1030 every half hour, with the last circuit starting...More

A decent enough trip around the city, but not great value for money. Yes, it is less expensive than City Sightseeing in a lot of other cities, however this is a fairly limited service, operating one route only, and only running every 30 minutes during...More

Not expensive at £6 for a Senior Citizen I will concede, but compared to a number of other Hop on Hop off buses in other cities in the U.K and in other countries this was pretty average. Bus had seen better days, commentary was audible...More
