Best London sightseeing bus tours - Brigit's Bakery Classic Bus Tour

The most stylish sightseeing bus tour

We understand the attraction of big bus tours, but open-top sightseeing bus tours aren't always the most comfortable option in London. You know what the weather is like! So we've come up with something a little different.

First, let us tell you a bit more about the sightseeing part of our tours. Because you won't be travelling on just any bus. When you book with us, you're onboard a Brigit's Bakery iconic, Routemaster double-decker bus. Since the Routemaster has been discontinued by TfL, we're one of the few organisations allowed to keep and run these beautiful vehicles. All our buses have been fully rebranded, re-purposed, and re-fitted to accommodate comfortable tables where you can enjoy your afternoon tea while cruising the streets of London.

When you choose a sightseeing tour with us, you'll board our beautiful buses in the heart of London. Don't go looking for bus stops - look out for our buses. You can't miss them! Hop on and we'll drive you through the busy streets of London for about 90 minutes (depending on traffic) and past the most famous landmarks that our City has to offer.

So expect to see Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park Corner, Harrods, Royal Albert Hall, Albert Memorial, Kensington Palace, Notting Hill, Hyde Park, Marble Arch, Mayfair, Green Park, The Ritz, St James Palace, Trafalgar Square, No.10 Downing Street, and much more!

So let's take a look at what tours are available for you to choose from.

"Absolutely fantastic. The whole experience was excellent. We had never done this before and were very exited. The bus was amazing. There was so much food and drink and if you don't eat it all you can take home. The two hosts were excellent and very pleasant. Enjoyed the sightseeing too."

Check out our themed sightseeing bus tours

We also offer some fantastic seasonal and themed afternoon tea bus tours. These vary month on month, so if you want to check what's available, head over to our website and select the month you're interested in to view what tours are available. Don't miss out!

Family-friendly Afternoon Tea Bus Tours

Day tours traipsing across the busy streets of London can be tiring for little ones. While jumping on the London Eye to get a nice view of the City is always an option, a walking tour of London to see the Tower of London or Tower Bridge might sound great to you but not to your children!

So if you're looking for a family-friendly sightseeing tour that will give you a chance to admire the landmarks but also have some fun (and yummy food) in comfort, we have a few themed tours designed with children in mind. And the first thing that makes our tours unique and exciting is the bus itself! Our themed tours are fully 'dressed up' for the occasion with lively and quirky Brigit's Bakery branding and colours, coupled with amazing graphics depicting our children-friendly characters. Want to know who we're talking about?

Here are our fantastic family-friendly sightseeing tours.

And if you want to hear it directly from our fabulous customers, here's a recent review about this particular tour:

"Such a fun way to see the sights! Delicious food!!! We had so much fun on the Paddington Afternoon Tea Tour Bus!! Sightseeing whilst eating the most delicious food was an absolute treat! The staff were so friendly and made us feel so special! The spread of food was incredible and it was such a surprise to have warm scones delivered to our table too! Amazing!! [...] Highly recommend this!!"

Please note that because we don't offer hop-on-hop-off bus tours and don't have toilet facilities onboard our buses, we think our tours are best suited for children of 5+.

So what sightseeing bus tour will you choose? And if you want something even more unique in the summer, did you know we also offer a Thames river cruise?
