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.

A deliciously British experience!

The whole experience was incredible. Went there as a surprise to my friends and we absolutely loved it! We enjoyed every bite of this delicious afternoon tea. Needless to say we ate everything…! The tour was also a delight. Weather was nice and allowed us to see all the beautiful landmarks perfectly.

Afternoon Tea in LaLa Land

Our friends booked me and my wife this treat for my birthday and it was excellent, nice food great service one and half hour of travelling around London with good commentary of the sites in between listening to nice xmas carols, really do go into la la land. would recommend this trip to any age group.

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.

WOW .. What an amazing experience

Gin Lovers what are you waiting for.
A afternoon tea with a difference, 3 complimentary gin cocktails, which includes a classic English Gin & Tonic, brought together with your classic Afternoon tea with a twist as some of your delights are infussed with GIN how FAB is that... Gin lovers you can't go wrong with this... And the fun doesn't stop there, your afternoon Gin tea, takes place on a vintage London route master bus while taking in some of the most famous sites of London.

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.

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!
