Routemaster Upstairs - nostalgia overload!

On the top deck home from school, they tried to keep the lads on the bottom and girls up top, yeah right! We were in secondary school, not a chance!

Must do. First thing when I arrive. Great orientation to the city..... London Routemaster bus having its destinations roll changed in the depot.
