  • An afternoon Tea Bus Tour With Brigit’s Bakery

    Afternoon tea bus London tour
    Is there anything nicer than an afternoon tea? A few

    Is there anything nicer than an afternoon tea? A few friends, a nice venue, loads of finger sandwiches, scones, cream and jam, delicious pastries and some bubbles for good measure. I have been to a few and that’s the sort of experience I always love! I had never been on a London bus tour though. You? And an afternoon tea bus tour? Even less. Until I tried last weekend with Brigit’s Bakery.

    And what a cool idea!

    You know me. I am never one to say no to food. Or to some Prosecco for that matter. And as previously said, I am a fan of Afternoon teas. Thus, when Adwaiz asked me to review the Afternoon Tea Bus tour, I could not say no.

    I brought Allison with me and off we were for a Afternoon Tea Bus Tour with Brigit’s Bakery.

    We met at Victoria Station and headed over to Victoria Coach Station. We had to get inside, so if you are interested in doing the bus tour, know that the bus is waiting inside the station, literally. It took us some time to realize that. We arrived and we were place at our table on the lower deck, where our food was waiting.

    We sat, took some photos, then got our drinks. Prosecco and jasmin tea for us both. The bus left the station and we started our tour. The bus took us round Big Ben, House of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, St James’s Park, The Royal Albert Hall, Marble Arch, Nelson’s Column, Downing Street, Buckingham Palace, Sloane Square, Knightsbridge… Basically key places in London.

    While we were doing the tour, we had our afternoon tea. Should you have dietary requirements, the team would cater specifically for you, providing that they are told in advance. Both Allison and I got the traditional afternoon tea menu: cucumber and mint finger sandwich, pastrami burger, ham and cheese sandwich, smoked salmon pretzel. For dessert we got a lemon meringue tart, vanilla and raspberry choux, chocolate cupcake and last but not least, best of the best and my favorite, a scone with clotted cream and jam.

    I am gonna miss good scones when I leave the UK.

    Our tea was served in a branded Brigit’s Bakery reusable cup that we got to keep! How cool as that? The tour lasts between an hour and an hour and a half. I admit that I would have liked it to last a little longer to really give me the time to appreciate both the food and the London’s tour. But I really enjoyed the experience and the food was super nice!

    I think it is a great thing to do with some friends visiting the city or even Londoners. It is quite an original experience after all. We had our afternoon tea bus tour just before Mother’s Day. Bring your mum all year round as I am sure that’s something she would love to do!

      A different afternoon, unique and special like a novella Alice! An experience to do!

      OK now this seems like an amazing way to have an afternoon tea! The food looks delicious and it’s definitely novel to have it on a bus.

      This looks SO fun, especially all the yummy treats. I’d love to do this sometime.

      I would love a bus ride like this. I do love tea and pastries very much.

      Too cool. Hope we have one too in the country soon. It would really be a treat!

      I can’t make it through a day without my afternoon tea so this would be something I would enjoy more than words. It looks like something I’d do, I take a lot of bus tours and train tours. I’m going to add this to my list of places to visit.

      This is the neatest idea I’ve ever heard of! Desserts and a tour why not!

      I have never heard to Brigit’s Bakery nor have I ever been on an afternoon tea bus tour. This sounds like it would be a fabulous way to explore London!

      Oh wow that’s such a cool place for an afternoon tea. I love the concept of a bus tour as you’re sipping on tea and finger sandwiches.

      This is awesome! Such a gorgeous tea set up. We have a hotel in my town that does high and low tea, but not quite as pretty as this.

    15. April 11, 2019 / 7:06 pm

      Wow a bus? That is such a fun idea and one I really would like to try. Those pastries looked awesome!

    16. April 14, 2019 / 3:29 pm

      This looks lush, as must on my London bucket list! Would you say it is just aimed at gal pals or would couples enjoy it too? X

      Afternoon Tea on a bus – what could be better! This sounds like an amazing experience and one that I haven’t come across before. The food looks delicious! I’m a huge fan of scones too! xxx
