Best Afternoon Tea in London

At Brigit's Bakery, we've been serving our L'Afternoon Tea - an exquisite afternoon tea experience with a French twist - for over 12 years.

We feel honoured that our Afternoon Tea Bus Tours and our delightful bakery in Covent Garden have been recognised as one of the best afternoon teas in London. We sit in great 'high tea' company, alongside prestigious brands and tea rooms such as The Lanesborough, The Wolseley, 45 Park Lane, Claridge’s, One Aldwych and The Berkeley.

Lovely tea and very happy kids!

We (2 adults and 2 kids) took the Peppa Pig Afternoon Tea Tour and loved it. The hosts on board were very well organised and welcoming. The tea was tasty, the service attentive and there were plenty of COVID safety precautions in place. We would definitely recommend!

Amazing, well worth it!

This is a wonderful activity of you have a little one who is a fan of Peppa Pig!
It is expensive however great value for money, there is plenty of food…sandwiches, pizza and a huge amount of cakes and they then bring scones half way round the tour. Adults can also have huge hot drinks and selection of drinks for little ones including hot chocolates in Peppa Pig cups.

The tour is great and takes you around all the familiar sites from the Peppa in London episodes. We were worried about space on the bus (both adults quite tall) but there was plenty of room and plenty of leg room!

The staff are amazing! They work so hard and make the whole tour stress free and enjoyable for the kids.

Celebrating an occasion

We took our friends on an afternoon tea on Brigit's Bus, the food and service was excellent, the staff we very friendly and we had a lovely time celebrating the friends Golden Wedding Anniversary. The weather was cloudy but it did not spoil the trip. It was a lovely afternoon. We look forward to doing it again.

Gin cocktails and afternooon tea

Fab afternoon. 3 different gin cocktails, great selection of sandwiches and rolls, beautifully delicious pastries and tarts followed by warm scone cream and jam. Tour bus had commentary and Glauce and Sarah were the perfect hostesses. Great afternoon for me and my niece . Thank you.

Birthday treat

What a fab afternoon tea including gin, my husband brought this as a birthday present and we all throughly enjoyed it.
We had a table upstairs with great views of London. The sandwiches and cakes were delicious.I will definitely say I would do this tour again

Brilliant gin bus!

Such a wonderful time - the food was so much better than we’d expected!! The cocktails were lovely too.. really needed the loo but there was 1 as soon as you got off. The Xmas decorations made it extra special and very memorable!
