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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Peppa Pig Bus Tour of London absolutely fantastic!

The entire theme was around Peppa Pig, even my 7 year old enjoyed it because it was informative about the sites of London and my 3 year old loved it because it's Peppa Pig!!!! My mum also enjoyed it as the food was really nice and she got to see the nice places in London! A must try for all!!!! The staff were amazing the food was super delicious and you get to take Peppa Pig coffee mugs home, as well as all the food! Well worth the money.

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.
