A brand new tour experience with 360° Virtual Reality glasses

July 20, 2017

Extrapolitan launches a new virtual reality experience in the heart of London.

Visitors to The Original London Visitor Centre next to Trafalgar Square can now take a virtual tour of London, Paris or Hong Kong with cutting-edge 360° VR glasses*.

Highlights of the VR experience include:

  • A stunning 360° panoramic view of the cities
  • Four different destinations available
  • An opportunity to ‘try before you buy’ the London bus tour
  • Free of charge to use


The glasses offer the experience of an open-top sightseeing bus as if you were actually on-board, allowing users to trial The Original Tour’s London sightseeing services prior to purchase or imagine they are on-board the bus in one of the other city locations. This new offering from The Original Tour aims to heighten the customer experience as well as providing a new and innovative opportunity at the Visitor Centre. A similar experience is also available across the channel with Extrapolitan brand Open Tour Paris.  

The introduction of the VR glasses across these two locations is the first example of a truly unique offering; helping differentiate Extrapolitan from its competitors and promoting their other sightseeing bus tour destinations.
