London Afternoon Tea Bus Tours

London bus tour with lunch

Do you want to beat some of the best dining experiences out there? Are you keen to impress friends and family with something quirky and unique while having the best time? Then forget expensive restaurants with fancy dress codes and time restrictions. Instead, take a full day off (or two), plan a day trip to London, and don't forget to book your place on one of our double-decker buses for an unforgettable Afternoon Tea Bus Tour that will get you to experience London from a whole new perspective.

Our tours depart from various locations in Central and West London, including Victoria Coach Station, Trafalgar Square, or Somerset House. Departure times vary, but our most popular tours run around lunchtime. Because what better opportunity to enjoy a London bus tour with lunch included? And it's not just any lunch! It's our signature afternoon tea with a surprising French twist!

Want to get an idea of the scrumptious food you can enjoy on our tours? We have freshly-prepared savouries, including a range of finger sandwiches, mini homemade pies, and buns. And for dessert, we offer an assortment of homemade cakes and tarts. Did anyone say truffles and cupcakes?

Of course, it wouldn't be afternoon tea without freshly-baked, plain, or fruit scones with clotted cream and jam! And for drinks, we have coffee, hot chocolate, a wide selection of teas, or a glass or two of bubbly.

Menus vary per tour, so make sure you check our website for the latest information on what you can expect to enjoy onboard your chosen tour.

What our customers say about our London Afternoon Tea Bus Tours with lunch

Here's what some of our lovely customers say about the food onboard our tours:

"What a great value for money!!! Thank you so much for this amazing experience onboard a tastefully decorated tour bus. The food was beautiful and delicious. What a great value for money! As an afternoon tea, which is supposed to be after lunch and before dinner, the quantity was more than enough. We couldn't even finish everything and the lovely bus staff gave us a takeaway box. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to discover the most iconic London landmarks while enjoying delightful food." - Zahra M (May 2022).

That's right - we even give you a takeaway box! Because of course we're biased, but our food is too good to go to waste, and we don't want you to miss out! We also serve your drinks in our fantastic branded, lidded, dishwasher-friendly travel mugs that you get to take home with you and use again and again. Pretty cool, don't you think? And you're bound to make your friends and family quite jealous!

Here are some more kind words shared by another one of our customers:

"Fantastic lunch treat. We had table 11 right at the front of the bus. The bus was already there when we arrived. [...] The food and tour we loved so much and would definitely go again. [...] I don't think there was anything bad to say about this tour." - Susan B (April 2022).

Did you know you can book our VIP seats at the front of the bus on the top deck when you book your table for your tour? Once you get to step four of your booking journey, you can pick Top Deck Only or VIP Only, and we'll be more than happy to accommodate you as long as we have available spaces on that particular tour on the date you selected.
