Our gin-lovers Afternoon Tea Bus Tour

For the grown-ups only (18+) in your group, we have our exclusive Gin Lovers Afternoon Tea Bus Tour. Departing daily from Victoria Coach Station or Trafalgar Square (on Fridays and Saturdays only) it really doesn't get more unique than this!

This tour is your chance to let your hair down and enjoy a fantastic afternoon tea with three delicious Gin & Tonics brought to you by premium gin brand Bombay Sapphire. Yep - you read that right. You jump on our bus, and our driver takes you around the streets of London while you get to enjoy afternoon tea and a drink (or two) in the company of your loved one or friends and family. What better way to spend an hour and a half?

The Peppa Pig Afternoon Tea Bus Tour

As you can probably imagine, our Peppa Pig Afternoon Tea Bus Tour is extremely popular with our littlest customers. Ideal for children aged 5+ (as we don't have toilet facilities onboard), the tour departs twice or 3 times daily from Somerset House and is available weekly from Thursdays to Sundays.

It goes without saying that we offer a super special Peppa Pig afternoon tea menu that will delight both children and grown-ups alike. Plus, each table comes with a special built-in tablet providing guests with a Peppa Pig guided animation of the London tour. And we have sing-a-long songs that the whole family will enjoy! We also offer all children a copy of our Peppa Pig Afternoon Tea Bus Tour Activity Book, full of fun things to colour and do.

The Paddington Afternoon Tea Bus Tour

To delight grown-ups and children alike, we recently launched a Paddington-themed Afternoon Tea Bus Tour. Available weekly from Wednesdays to Sundays and departing twice daily from Trafalgar Square, our 90-minute tour (depending on traffic) takes you around the streets of London on our iconic, Paddington-themed, double-decker Routemaster bus.

Our stunning Paddington-themed bus also features a very special guided animation (available on a tablet installed on each table) where our beloved Paddington bear and Mrs. Bird talk us through the sights. It's one you don't want to miss, and in case you're wondering... yes - we do have marmalade on the menu. It's a Paddington tour - how could we not?

Our themed Afternoon Tea Bus Tours

If this wasn't enough, we also run special-themed bus tours every month to celebrate special milestones or occasions.

Bastille Day Afternoon Tea Bus Tour

Did you know Brigit's Bakery's founders are French? Our afternoon tea menu is also French-inspired (and that's what makes it so unique). This is why, every year, we also choose to celebrate Bastille Day on the 14th of July with a special, close-to-our-hearts Bastille Day Afternoon Tea Bus Tour.

We have 3 tours departing from Victoria Coach Station on this day only, and, of course, a specially crafted menu for the occasion. So if you're interested, don't miss out!

The Blamtastic BEANO Afternoon Tea Bus Tour - COMING SOON!

For a limited period of time over the summer months, we will also be running a very special BEANO Afternoon Tea Bus Tour. Departing 3 times a day from Victoria Coach Station, this exclusive-themed tour celebrates BEANO’s 85th birthday, and the look of our Routemaster bus for this occasion is out of this world!

Our chefs are currently working hard to create a blamtastic BEANO-inspired menu, featuring custard tarts and gnasher & mash chocolate cupcakes. While we wait for the menu to be unveiled, bookings for this tour aren't open. But if this tour tickles your fancy we recommend you scroll right to the bottom of this page and sign up for our newsletter to be the first to know when you can book your seat.

How to book our Afternoon Tea Bus Tours

To find out exactly what Afternoon Tea Bus Tours are running on what dates, we recommend you select the tab Our Bus Tours on our website and click on the month you're interested in under 'View by Month'.

You can then check out dates, times, and departure points for each tour, as well as see the menu and find the link to book your place (including any bubbly you'd like to drink on the day).

Thames Cruise Afternoon Tea Boat Tour

For one day only, we'll also be running our 3-hour exclusive Thames Cruise Afternoon Tea Boat Tour. That's right - this is most definitely not on a bus! And for the occasion, we use no less than a vintage, private motor yacht with a uniformed captain!

You'll be cruising down the River Thames while taking in some of London's best culture, landmarks, and history... from the water! And, of course, while you do that, our friendly staff will serve our signature Afternoon Tea. So, as always with us, you can expect freshly-prepared savouries, an assortment of mini homemade cakes and tarts, and scones with clotted cream and jam.

To book, please contact us on 020 3026 1188 or fill out the form below choosing General Enquiry. Please note that due to the exclusive nature of this tour, you may be sharing a table depending on your group size.

More Brigit's Bakery fun

Also, don't forget you can join us for brunch or afternoon tea at our bakery in Covent Garden. Or you can book a picnic lunch or ask for your afternoon tea to be delivered.
