What will I see and do on the afternoon tea bus tour of London?

Hop on an iconic double-decker bus and take in spectacular sights as you delight in some scrumptious delicacies as part of this quintessentially British tradition.

The beautifully decorated bus takes you through central London, offering panoramic views of the city’s iconic landmarks. Admire King Charles III’s official residence, Buckingham Palace, the imposing sight of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, and the historic Tower of London among many more.

Book a spot on the upper deck to get those angles worthy of your Insta feed, or choose the bottom deck for a view of the city and icons from ground level. Premium upper deck seating lets you take in the best views from the front of the bus.

What food does the afternoon tea bus tour include?

Once you’ve been welcomed on board and taken to your seat, it’s time to sip on a refreshing glass of prosecco (or orange juice if that’s what you prefer).

As the bus departs, tuck into a sumptuous afternoon tea that’s brought to your table, including a selection of sandwiches with classic flavour combinations of cucumber and cream cheese, smoked salmon and lemon, and egg and cress.

Continue your journey through the capital’s streets and be treated to freshly baked scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam. And, of course, no English afternoon tea would be complete without a choice of exquisite pastries and cakes.
