London afternoon tea bus review

London Afternoon tea bus review

First off I want to say it was amazing & I would 100% recommend.  I was pleasantly surprised by the food and luckily we had a  beautiful sunny day.

The company is The BB Bakery and it is a converted double decker red London bus.

On board is a little snug but lovely. Please be aware there are no toilets so go before you board ( and have 30p handy as that's the charge to use the toliet at Victoria Coach Station!)

You have proper plates and silver plastic cutlery. You also have a plastic cup for hot drinks with a screw lid to avoid spillages. You can choose from several teas, coffee and hot chocolate. There's also orange juice and water. The presentation is beautiful and we had no problems with things sliding about.

The staff point out several attractions as you pass but really it's more about enjoying the view and food.


It costs £45 per person which given the high standard of food I think is well worth it. We had the traditional selection but gluten free, vegetarian and halal Afternoon Teas are available.


I would definitely do it again and am considering taking my daughter for a special treat next year.

Victoria coach station was easy to get to from Euston and although the letter states to be there 15/20 minutes before boarding you could get there with 5/10 minutes to spare.  It was extremely well organised and was a fantastic girls day out.

  8. This sounds amazing!! I would definitely love to do that!! This sounds super fun!!! I'm not keen about not having a toilet but I guess it should be fine if you go before hand as you suggested. The prize sounds good considering all what you are getting from it!! There is nothing cheap in London anyway! I will make a note of it as I think it should a fun thing to do with some friends!! Great review!! Thanks so much for sharing this at #KCACOLS. It is always lovely to have you!! I would love to see you again on Sunday! :-) x
