1. They’re just so freaking cool.

2. Recognizable all around the world, it’s a classic tourist photo of London.

3. Possibility of off-the-beaten-path-kind-of sightseeing when sitting on the top floor.

4. They’re so cheap to use! (when compared to the Tube or other)

5.Tourist reason: there are vocal and visual announcements of what the next stop is, therefore voiding any reason not to take the bus.
