London’s public art is the best, especially the various parades which happen. At the end of last year there were two, one of them being the bus parade to celebrate the Year of the Bus (which was 2014). For this weekend all the buses were brought together at the Olympic Park in Stratford so that they could all be seen.
Seeing them all together was beautiful! And here are just some of my favourites. We all thought the Carnaby Street one was all kinds of perfect. It’s just a happy bus isn’t it? Also loved Busby – who wouldn’t love him? (Yup, I just assigned the bus a gender.) All the buses are up for auction and you can bid on a bus here if you want to – my mum really wants to. And I think that includes the bus below. It was actually being made as we watched – loved that. But I think the coolest thing was being able to see and get on a B-Type Battle Bus used during WW1 to move troops in Britain and France. My favourite pictures of the whole day are below. Sometimes it’s really nice to just be silly and have some fun ins’t it?
