Staycation London - a summer of fun with Brigit's Bakery

Jump on an Afternoon Tea Bus Tour

Our legendary Classic Afternoon Tea Bus Tour runs all year round with 7 tours across London that depart daily from Victoria Coach Station or Trafalgar Square. If you've not been on one of our tours before, it's an experience like no other. Our friendly staff will welcome you and the rest of your party on board and show you to your table, where you'll be served afternoon tea... with a twist.

You see, Brigit's Bakery's founders are proudly French, so we've taken this quintessentially British tradition (high tea) and added our own special touches to it. Our menus may vary slightly, but to give you an idea of the deliciousness you can expect, here's our Traditional menu.

Freshly-prepared savouries:

  • Mini mushroom quiche.
  • Cucumber, cream cheese, and mint finger on basil bread.
  • Turkey ham and cheese, mayo mustard finger on tomato bread.
  • Feta, tomato, and red pepper savoury muffin.
  • Salmon and cucumber pretzel with cream cheese.

And for dessert, we have an assortment of mini homemade cakes and tarts:

  • Passion fruit and white chocolate pannacotta.
  • Strawberry and yuzu tart.
  • Apple crumble choux.
  • Orange and poppy seed cupcake.

We also offer Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-free, and Halal menus. Plus, you can read more about our halal afternoon tea menu here.

Of course, after all this finger-licking food, you can enjoy freshly-baked, plain scones with clotted cream and jam and a selection of teas, coffees, or hot chocolate. And if you want to let your hair down, you can always include a glass of Prosecco when you book your place on the tour. To see our wine list and itinerary, click here.
