Take a tea bus through London

Strolling past the iconic sights such as Buckingham Palace and the London Eye are usually part of a visit to this regal city. Enjoying a sumptuous afternoon tea is also part of the quintessential London experience. Why not save time and do both at the same time? Tea bus tours are gaining popularity and for good reason. Customers hop on a vintage red bus and can enjoy tasty treats while seeing all the gloriousness London has to offer.

B Bakery Bus Tour

With a quaint traditional storefront in trendy Covent Garden, Brigit’s Bakery is brimming with colorful macarons and other delicious pastries with a French flair. However, for something special, book a tour on the B Bakery Bus Tour. The classic Routemaster double-decker bus has squishy red vinyl booths and tables. Servers offer a full afternoon tea, complete with savory finger sandwiches, sweet desserts and, of course, scones with clotted cream and jam. There’s a variety of teas and coffees to choose from, and customers have the option to purchase wine or bubbly ahead of time. The bus takes you past places such as Hyde Park, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and many more.

During the holiday season, B Bakery offers special tours to view decorations and the festive light displays throughout the town. If tea isn’t quite your cup of tea, they also offer a Gin Lover’s tour. They also offer special themed tours for other holidays such as Chinese New Year, Mother’s Day and Halloween.

Know Before You Go

B Bakery Bus Tours have several departure times throughout the day. Be sure to take note of your departure point, as some leave from Trafalgar Square and others leave from Victoria Coach Station. Children under the age of 5 are not allowed on the tours. Also, there is no restroom on the buses, so plan your drinks accordingly.
