Popular with Londoners and tourists alike, whether you've visited London before or not, our Christmas Afternoon Tea Bus Tour is a must! But it only runs from mid November to early January so make sure you check out our website for this years dates and menu and book your place to avoid missing out!

Afternoon Tea Menu at Brigit's Bakery

Our bakery is a stunning, quirky sanctuary in Chandos Place - Covent Garden. If you're in the area, perhaps catching a show at the theatre, visiting the Christmas markets, or even after spending the day somewhere in London (it really doesn't matter if it's South Bank, east London, south London, or anywhere in between!), then you've got to come and relax and have a bite to eat at our bakery.
