London experience gifts: Classic Afternoon Tea Bus Tour


Classic Afternoon Tea Bus Tour

When it comes to experience days, nothing screams quirky and unique like an afternoon tea bus tour. Think about it. You get the chance to enjoy afternoon tea with beautifully arranged and super tasty finger sandwiches, mouth-watering cakes, and (of course) scones and jam. That's a treat in itself, and we all know it.

But there's more. A lot more, in fact.

First of all, when you book an afternoon tea bus tour with us, you get afternoon tea with a twist. A French one, to be precise. You just have to take a quick look at our menu to know you're going to be pleasantly impressed. Our finger sandwiches include a delicious turkey ham, cheese with mustardy mayo and chutney onion finger, a mushroom quiche, and a savoury muffin with feta, peppers, and sun-dried tomato just to name a few.

And as for our assortment of mini homemade cakes and tarts, you can expect a to-die-for coconut and raspberry choux with red craquelin and the most delicate yuzu meringue tart you've ever tasted. You have to trust us on this - the menu is just lush! And if you have any specific preferences or dietary requirements, we also offer alternative menus, such as Vegetarian, Vegan, Halal, and Gluten-free. Our menus are regularly updated, so please check at time of booking for your latest afternoon tea menu options.

But that's not all. Because while you sit back and relax, our friendly staff will take care of you with food and drinks. Who doesn't want a cup of their favourite hot beverage plus a glass of Prosecco or Champagne to go with their afternoon tea? Not to mention, you'll be sitting onboard an incredibly iconic Routemaster bus while comfortably exploring London. Our 90-minute tour will take you past the most famous London landmarks, so when it comes to experience days, what can possibly beat a tour with us?

Hang on, we might have just the thing...

How about a themed tour with us?

London experience gifts: Christmas Lights Bus Tours

Christmas Afternoon Tea Bus Tours

If you're reading this at the time of publication and during the festive period, you'll be pleased to know we offer a range of Christmas-themed tours. These afternoon tea bus tours not only offer a unique Christmassy menu but also give you the opportunity to admire the Christmas Lights by taking a special route along Regents Street (on our 5 pm tours only).

The best way to find out what tours are running when is to head over to this page on our website and select the month you're looking to book an experience in.

London experience gifts: Gin Lovers Afternoon Tea

Gin Lovers' Afternoon Tea Bus Tour

If you're looking for experience gifts that your loved one will remember for time to come, then why not look into our Gin Lovers Afternoon Tea Bus Tour? For adults only (18+), this tour runs on Fridays and Saturdays at 5:30 pm and 6:30 pm, departing from Victoria Coach Station or Trafalgar Square.

It's a truly unique opportunity as Harrogate-based premium gin brand Slingsby and Brigit's Bakery have teamed up to put this experience together - the only one in London of this kind! We're not only serving classic and flavoured G&Ts but also gin-infused cakes. (You can see now why it's an experience for grown-ups only!)

For more information on our full menu (including our alternative menus), and to find out about availability and book your place, check out this page.

London experience gifts: Peppa Pig Afternoon Tea Bus Tour

Children-themed Afternoon Tea Bus Tours

If you're looking for an experience gift in London specifically for your children or the whole family, we also themed afternoon tea bus tours designed with the little ones in mind.

So check out the following:

  • The Peppa Pig Afternoon Tea Bus Tour. Perfect for all Peppa Pig fans, the tour offers a fun Peppa Pig-themed menu and a lot more! Each table comes with an integrated tablet where you can watch our Peppa Pig tour animation and sing along between one landmark and the next. Every guest also gets to take home a branded travel mug and a colourful activity book.
  • The NEW Paddington Afternoon Tea Bus Tour. Following the success of the Peppa Pig tour, we thought we'd add another bear-tastic adventure to our arsenal. This unique tour (on a Paddington-branded Routemaster double-decker bus) offers a Paddington-themed afternoon tea menu (including, of course, marmalade sandwiches!). It also has tablets installed on each table where you get to learn facts about the most famous London landmarks directly from Paddington bear and the lovely Mrs. Bird. It's one not to miss!
  • And if you're reading this at the time of publication and during the festive season, then we have another fantastic new offering - the Grinchmas tour. And yes, you probably guessed it - our chefs have designed a unique menu for this experience! Because the tour only runs during the festive period, our 5 pm tour (just like all our other Christmas tours) takes a special route via Regents Street so our guests can admire the Christmas lights.

While these tours are family-friendly, we don't have any toilet facilities onboard our buses, so we kindly ask that you only book one of these experiences if your children are aged 5 and over.

More experiences in London

If you're looking for other experiences in London, here are some ideas for you:

  • Learn a new skill. London offers a wide range of workshops - from pottery to cooking, chocolate making, art, calligraphy, and more! If you want to learn or practise a new skill and get creative with your gift experience, there's plenty you can do without having to look or travel very far.
  • Check out the London walking tours. If you like walking and want to explore the City on foot, you can pick a walking tour and just follow directions or book an organised one. Did you know that Jack The Ripper walks as well as Ghost Tours are available? Sounds like fun, right? Check them out!
  • Be a tourist! London is one of the most amazing cities in the world! There's plenty you can do, even if all you have is one day. You could pick a museum or two, jump on the London Eye, visit one of the iconic attractions (such as the London Dungeon or Madame Tussauds), or just relax in one of the parks (maybe with a Brigit's Bakery picnic in tow?)

So what London experience gifts will you choose this year?
