Looking for a unique and memorable afternoon tea experience in London? Look no further than the Brigit B's Tea Bus! This vintage double-decker bus takes you on a tour of some of the city's most iconic landmarks, while you enjoy a delicious afternoon tea.

The Brigit B Tea Bus offers a variety of afternoon tea options to choose from, including the Classic Afternoon Tea, the Vegan Afternoon Tea, and the Peppa Pig Afternoon Tea. All afternoon teas include a selection of finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, and a variety of sweet treats. You can also choose to add a glass of prosecco or champagne to your afternoon tea.


In addition to the delicious food, the Brigit B Tea Bus also offers a fun and informative tour of London. Your driver will take you past some of the city's most famous landmarks, including Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, and the Tower of London. You'll also learn about the history and culture of London as you travel.


The Brigit B Tea Bus is a great way to experience the best of London in a fun and unique way. Whether you're looking for a special occasion or just a fun afternoon out, the Bridget B Tea Bus is great option.


Here is the breakdown of the Brigit B Tea Bus:

  • It's around $76 per person. Less for children and more for the top deck or VIP seating (top front).

  • The bus does not stop anywhere. You do a 90-minute loop that starts and ends at the same place.

  • You'll get to see some of London's most iconic landmarks from a unique perspective.

  • You'll enjoy a delicious afternoon tea with a variety of sweet and savory treats.

  • You'll learn about the history and culture of London as you travel.

  • It's a fun and memorable way to spend an afternoon.

  • The tour is about 90 minutes in duration

  • It takes off from two different places (Victoria Coach Station or Trafalgar Square) so remember where you booked! NOTE: The Peppa Pig bus takes off from Somerset House.

  • Riders wear anything from casual to fancy afternoon tea outfits with fascinators or hats.

  • Your choice of tea is served in a cute, covered insulated cup you get to take with you.

  • If you easily get car sick, choose a lower deck table. The top sways quite a bit.

We booked VIP seating and were sat at the top level right in the front row. While the view was awesome, the seat was a bit tight for two of us and I had to brace myself with a foot on the floor the whole ride or I felt like I was falling off. These buses were made at a time where everyone was smaller and thinner than today. Also, being right at the window and the top part being open, it dried out the bread on our sandwiches. But, neither dampened our fun!


The Brigit B Tea Bus is a great way to see London and enjoy a delicious afternoon tea at the same time. I highly recommend it and would take it again with a friend! Do have a little cash on hand for tips. They clearly appreciate them at the end of the tour. I left a bit at the table for the staff and then handed a fiver to the driver when we got off - he was waiting around the door helping people off.


If this sounds like a fun experience, you can book the tea tour HERE

If your days are booked and you can get on Brigit B's, there's a Golden Tours alternative that doesn't quite have the same vibe but will still be lovely. You can see this one HERE

And, if a boat is more your thing, a tea on the river is a lovely alternative. Check out the option for that HERE.
