If you love seeing all the best parts of London without getting into the crowds, this might be for you!
When we went to London, we tried London’s afternoon tea bus tour by Brigit’s Bakery. This was not real English afternoon tea. But it was a very nice attraction! Here’s our thought and review of the afternoon tea bus tour by Brigit’s Bakery.
Brigit’s Bakery is usually called BB Bakery on the internet. This little cake shop and bakeries in Covent Garden offer bus tours with afternoon tea.
To be honest, I was kind of worried about how they were going to serve hot tea and pastries on an actual moving bus, but everything was ok. It was super safe.
Cake trays were longer and lower than the traditional ones. I think it’s for extra safety. The plates were also attached to the table. They won’t slide around.
They’ve thought of everything to serve a configurable experience to guests. How nice!
The pastries were too sweet for me. Tea was not so special. But I could experience afternoon tea, double-decker bus, and amazing London sightseeing at once.
It was an amazing experience! I loved it.
Orange juice with cute illustrations is served in bottles.
Afternoon tea included:
- Freshly baked, plain scone with clotted cream & jam
- Coffee or hot chocolate
- Orange juice
It was a lot. The sandwiches were pretty big. We couldn’t finish our scone. This could be your lunch. They also gave you to go box if you couldn’t finish it. We took our scone to the hotel.
Note: BB Bakery also provides gluten-free or vegetarian options.
The standard bus route departs from Victoria Coach Station and Trafalgar Square.
Our bus driver will take us around Whitehall, Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park Corner, Harrods, V&A, National History Museum, Science Museum, Royal Albert Hall, Albert Memorial, Kensington Palace, Notting Hill, Hyde Park, Marble Arch, Mayfair, Green Park, The Ritz, St James Palace, Trafalgar Square, Nelson’s Column, Horse Guard Parade and No.10 Downing Street.
The views were obviously fantastic! Tour was about 90 minutes.
It was about 51 USD per person. Yes, it’s not cheap. However, we enjoyed this casual and unique afternoon tea experience. Highly recommended (:
