Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

All aboard! The most complex thing most Londoners probably consider on an average bus journey is what they're having for tea. The Philosophy Bus is here to change that. As part of the ongoing activities marking the Year of the Bus, TfL has joined forces with The Philosophy Foundation to get Londoners thinking. On Thursday November 20 the Philosophy Bus (a new Routemaster) will make its first stop in Covent Garden, inviting audiences to think about environmental ethics with the BBC's Ethical Man, Justin Rowlat. It will then move to Embankment where Angie Hobbs, Professor of the Public Understanding of Philosophy at Sheffield University, will be discussing metaphysics in relation to the Thames. After making its way to Tate Britain for a consideration of aesthetics,  the bus will make a final stop at Speakers' Corner where philosopher AC Grayling will be speaking about ‘the two great questions of philosophy’. Tickets can be booked online in advance here (get top deck seats for kids aged seven to 12).
