The Paddington Bear Afternoon Tea Bus Tour

Did you know 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.

What's so special about this tour? I mean, just look at our stunning our Paddington bus is! But the magic doesn't stop at the look. As you relax and enjoy our unique take on afternoon tea, you'll be entertained by our Paddington-guided animation, available on a tablet installed on each table.

Taking in the best views of Central London, we'll take you past the most famous landmark and share the nation's favourite bear's view of the world with you. Our guided animation of the tour will talk you through Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Hyde Park, Downing Street, St. Paul's Cathedral, Piccadilly Circus, and much more. Be prepared to hear about some of Paddington fun adventures and mishaps!

Plus, of course, as always on our bus tours, you get a choice of hot drinks including coffee, a wide selection of teas, and a hot chocolate option for your little cubs. And let's face it - it wouldn't be afternoon tea without our delicious freshly-baked scones served with clotted cream and jam. Yum!!!

Oh, and this might be a family outing, but if you want to add a glass of bubbly to your order, you can do so when you book your place here.

Please note that due to the length of the tour and having no toilets on board the bus, our Paddington Afternoon Tea Bus Tour is best suited for children aged 5+. And if you're interested in one of our alternative menus, we also offer Vegetarian, Vegan, Halal, and Gluten-free. Simply scroll down to the bottom of this page to see those menus in more detail.

What our customers say about the Paddington Afternoon Tea Bus Tour

Here's what our lovely customer Lauren said:

"Bus Tea Tour is wonderful. We did the Paddington Afternoon Tea with our children, and it was wonderful. The set up was adorable, and the incorporation of Paddington was wonderful. Some of us were on the top and some down below, and we all loved it. They were engaged and attentive and we had a wonderful experience." (April 2023).

And here's recent feedback (April 2023) from Nigel:

"Great experience for any age. My partner and I went on the Paddington-themed tour this Easter. It was a real treat and made our holiday. The tour took in all the key sights and was excellent value for money. The delicious food and drinks were from Brigit's Bakery. The tour hosts were very friendly and the Paddington theme didn't disappoint."

And last but not least, some super kind words from Jaxs (April 2023):

"Get this booked you will love it! Aw amazing experience. Me and my sister took our daughters last week on the Paddington Bear bus from half 5-7. It was my daughter's birthday treat. They made a fuss of her with a cake and candle and gave us adults some complimentary Prosecco, which was awesome. The bus staff were so lovely and got down to the kids level. Even the lovely bus driver was nice and friendly. It was so good to see the London sights and the TV had some interesting facts to learn from. We were all buzzing after leaving. We just loved it."

So don't just take our word for it - our customers absolutely love this tour!
