Touring with Harry ( London Competition)
Harry just loves the city of London.
Most days and nights he can be found driving his open topper past all the world famous landmarks that London has to offer.
Some days Harry starts at 5am and sets off along either the Red route or the Blue and depending on how his day goes he may take in the later 11pm Orange night tour along the embankment.
Ducking under Tower Bridge taking in all the bright lights on the way with perhaps a quick unexpected diversion to Piccadilly Circus thrown in for free. All in all you can guarantee that a busy exhausting schedule is assured.
With Harry’s tour’s however, there is no hop-on or hop-off facility, nor is there any recorded multilingual commentary available.
Even if you decided to select one of the available twenty languages or so to ask a question, anything on the Autism Spectrum Disorder never, ever, appears on the screen to help guide and advise you about your tour.
At Buckingham Palace for example if you asked.
“Excuse me, can you please stop the bus here?
Your request is met with a faint humming of an engine and the bus swiftly moves on without stopping in the direction of the Houses of Parliament.
Harry has great fun with his six by four London play mat, many happy hours are spent pushing his little red double decker bus over and over the same route without any problems occurring except the time when he came to an abrupt halt at the Millennium Bridge.
He became upset when told buses weren’t allowed on the bridge.
“ It’s for pedestrians only Harry…shall we both look for a different route…?
The bus took on the power of flight and struck Tottenham Court Road, a road never travelled, losing its front wheels and cracking the top deck window screen.
For a few rare moments the great city fell silent, even Big Ben stopped in mid chime.
“Let’s!” We all said in unison. “Go to London for a holiday. None of us have ever been there, Harry can sit up front on a real bus and show us which way to go”
