The Easter Afternoon Tea Bus Tour

Here at Brigit's Bakery, we love celebrating occasions, and Easter gives us a great opportunity for a fun, themed afternoon tea tour onboard a fully decorated bus! So if you're looking for something a little different to do for this time of year, check out availability for our Easter Afternoon Tea Bus Tour. And don't miss the chance to book your place - they're selling like hot cakes!

This year we have 5 daily tours departing from either Victoria Coach Station or Trafalgar Square for a limited period of time (check dates here). And while you sit back, relax, and enjoy the sights of London on our iconic Routemaster buses - all while sipping on a lovely cup of tea or coffee and maybe even a glass of bubbly - we take care of all the rest.

Depending on traffic, the tour will last approximately 90 minutes, and your driver will take you past Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, St James’s Park, Hyde Park, The Royal Albert Hall, Marble Arch, Nelson’s Column, Downing Street, and many more famous landmarks.

The Paddington Afternoon Tea Bus Tour

Who needs the Easter Bunny when you can jump on a Paddington Afternoon Tea Bus Tour all year round? One of the most recent additions to the Brigit's Bakery fleet of themed buses, our Paddington-branded Routemaster bus has proved extremely popular with families, couples, and groups of friends. After all, we're talking about the nation's favourite bear here!

The tour runs Wednesdays to Sundays twice a day, departing from Trafalgar Square. Similarly to the Peppa Pig's tour, each table comes with a special built-in screen providing guests with a Paddington-guided animation of the tour of London. Paddington and Mrs. Bird will be telling you all about some of the City’s most famous landmarks and share our beloved bear’s view of the world. So be prepared to learn bear-approved facts about Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Hyde Park, St. Paul's Cathedral, Borough Market, Green Park, Piccadilly Circus, and more!

Things to do in London at Easter

Visit Brigit's Bakery in Covent Garden

If a tour isn't for you but you're in town for the Easter Bank Holiday weekend (and beyond), why not book a table at Brigit's Bakery? We don't just offer afternoon tea and delicious cakes but also all-day brunch and lunch. You can view our full, mouth-watering menu here.

Visit Kensington Palace

If you're looking for other things to do in London on Easter, why not visit Kensington Palace for the Crown to Couture exhibition? It opens just in time for the Easter holidays and will display over 200 objects, including Lady Gaga's luminous green MTV Awards dress. It promises to be one not to miss!

Check out Peter Rabbit Easter Adventure

If you're in the Covent Garden area (after paying our bakery a visit, of course), you can meet Squirrel Nutkin, Mrs. Tiggy Winkle, and Benjamin Bunny at the Peter Rabbit Easter Adventure. You can look forward to storytelling, live performances, fantastic puppetry, and, of course, seeing the one and only Peter Rabbit in action! What says Easter more than that?

Visit Kew Gardens

This Easter at the botanic gardens in Kew Gardens, you can set off on an amazing adventure with the characters from the book Superworm by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. While following an enchanting trail through the garden, you'll meet Superworm and his friends and learn all about the role they play in the gardens and the importance of soil. Definitely an interesting one for your little explorers!

Join one of the many Easter Egg Hunts in London

Easter Egg hunts are fun and super popular. Make sure you look out for any happening near you - English Heritage and The National Trust organise several in various locations. But you'll also be able to find an Easter Egg hunt in KidZania, Hampton Court, Cannizaro Park, St. John's Wood Church, and many others! Plan ahead and go have some fun!
