Paddington Christmas Lights Bus Tour Route

Yy 5 yr son loved the bus, cakes & souvenirs.

Really enjoyed our experience on the Paddington themed afternoon tea bus tour. I took my 5 yr son and he loved the bus, cakes and souvenirs. Would definitely recommend, particularly if you have young kids and want to show them the City of London.

The girls had so much fun listening to the tour.

We just finished Paddington tour bus! Best experience in every way and will try different tours.

I booked this for my daughters 7th Birthday. The food is beautiful presented! Very cute and vegetarian menu very good in selection. The girls had so much fun listening to the tour. Our hosts JP, Vince and Anna were amazing and very friendly. The hygiene is well considered, staff wear gloves when serving the sandwiches. We are definitely going to try different theme tour with Brigit Bakery again!

It was like entering a parallel universe of fun & tasty treats.

I took my two sons aged 11 and 6 on the inaugural Paddington Afternoon Tea Bus Tour with Brigit's Bakery. And we had such a good time. It was like entering a parallel universe of fun and tasty treats. The sandwiches and cakes were delicious - we sat down really hungry and left completely stuffed. The staff were friendly and attentive. And it was fun having Paddington and Mrs Bird narrating our journey around London. A wonderful activity to do over the half term holiday.

The team were exemplary!

We were on the second Paddington themed bus tour and the team were exemplary! Very professional and made the experience extremely special for my son and I. We sat right at the front and had the most wonderful afternoon, even despite my little one suffering from motion sickness. I highly recommend!
