London Buses route 8 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, United Kingdom. The service is currently contracted to East London.


On 1 November 1908, the bus route number 8 was allocated to a previously un-numbered route operating between Shepherds Bush and Ilford. On 20 June 1912, Routes 8 and 25 exchanged eastern ends at Bank, so that from then on the 8 operated between Willesden and Old Ford. This situation continued, apart from various westward extensions of the route to Wembley and Alperton, until July 1993. At that time the 8 again was re-routed over the 25, but this time to Victoria, becoming a daily Victoria - Old Ford - Bow route. In as much, the same routing as the 1912 version of route 25. The western end of the route becoming 98.
