The Routemaster is not the only hop-on, hop-off double-decker to have graced the streets of England, but it is the bus most loved by Londoners and tourists alike.

Introduced in 1956, it was designed specifically for London and had some pretty advanced design features such as a light alloy body to allow for more seats, to try and entice car drivers onto them.

The Routemaster gave rise to the double-act of driver and conductor – a familiar pairing described as “the Lennon and McCartney of the road”.

Although 2005 saw the gradual phasing out of the Routemaster, it will be remembered through films, TV shows, pop videos, postcards and guide books
