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.

Fantastic Birthday Gift

I booked this for 5 Adults for my sisters 40th Birthday - and have to say it was amazing!! The food was delicious, the selection of drinks too, and the attention to detail was so cute! You got to keep the hot tea flasks that drinks were served in - and they gave out little pink takeaway boxes for any spare cakes! As it was my sisters birthday they brought out a cake with a candle and we all sung happy birthday! I will be highly recommending this to my friends!

Luxury afternoon

A wonderful experience food drinks and excellent service. We went at 3pm, were not rushed in any way and the cocktails were top notch.

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.

Fun gin fuelled afternoon

Really enjoyed this experience, nice music as you go along, sandwiched and cakes are all fresh and you get scones during the tour. There is a tour guide voiceover so you get more of the tourist side of the experience. And of course the gin, in which you get 3 different glasses across the tour. Hats off to the waiters on the tour as they must find it challenging to serve afternoon tea and drinks on a bus!! Overall we all really enjoyed and would go again for sure.

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

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.
