Arriva London’s Heritage Fleet open-topper bus helps bring Christmas to London at the Hamley’s Toy Parade
‘Christmas comes but once a year, but when it does it brings good cheer’ and that’s exactly what Arriva London’s iconic open-top red Routemaster helped to do last weekend at the Hamley’s Toy Parade in Regent Street.
Hamleys, celebrating its 255th birthday, brought the magic of Christmas to Regent Street with the biggest toy parade London has ever seen. Characters including Barbie and her pink Limo, Elmo & Phoebe, Furchester Hotel, Fireman Sam, Hello Kitty, Ice-age Sid and Scrat, Miffy, Peppa Pig, The Gruffalo, Transformer Optimus Prime Truck and many more all made a special appearance.
The Arriva Heritage Fleet bus also had a special appearance to make, as it delivered Father Christmas and the famous Hamley's Elves to greet the crowds on this magical day; the parade was topped off with a spectacular fireworks display, completing a memorable day for all.
