Review: BB Bakery Afternoon Tea Bus Tour

As my birthday treat yesterday, my parents booked me on for Afternoon Tea on the BB Bakery tour bus. Set on a vintage red London Routemaster bus, the travelling bakery sets off from 8 Northumberland Avenue for a 90 minute whistle stop tour of the best sights in London town. You'll be able to gaze in awe at Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Harrods and many more. You get a good selection of French pastries alongside a delicious cupcake and buttery scone. I would have personally preferred a few more sandwiches as I have savoury tooth but I soon scoffed my fair chare of the delicious cakes. The mushroom quiche and chocolate macaroon were my favourites - I'm drooling just thinking about them.

It's certainly not cheap but it's well worth it for a special treat. It's such a novelty way to see the best parts of the city whilst stuffing your face - I'd definitely recommend you jump aboard!


  1. My friend is doing this afternoon tea for her hen do and I was so excited about trying it because it looks so fun .. but unfortunately I now can't go so I'm majorly sulking :(

  5. This looks so cute - definitely one for my list! x

  6. I'm so glad you had a lovely time!

  7. This looks so cute! And the more cakes the better as far as I'm concerned as I never seem to like the sandwiches they serve at afternoon tea.
