BB Bakery Afternoon Tea

BB Bakery based in Covent Garden came up with an ingenious idea of Afternoon Tea on a bus tour around London – what a wonderful idea!! Amazingly, they also offer a boat tour around London too.

The bus tours leave from either Northumberland Avenue or Victoria station – make sure you book a month or two in advance for weekends, especially if you want a seat upstairs! If you want a seat at the front of the bus, it is an extra £10. Other tickets vary for weekdays and weekends but are between £45-50 pp. You can also bring your own alcohol on board – the website says there is a corkage fee of £5 but we weren’t charged for this.

The tour covers the following and is a lovely way to see London:

BB Bakery Afternoon Tea

The traditional afternoon tea includes savoury cake with ham, cucumber and mint finger sandwich,salmon blinis with cream cheese and chicken sandwich with tomato bread and vegetable quiche.

There were a variety of cakes including, mini chocolate cupcake,pistachio macaroons, Victoria sponge and creme patisserie. All topped off with scones with clotted cream and jam! I asked in advance for sandwiches with no dressing and they were happy to oblige. They also cater for  vegetarian, gluten free and halal diets.


It was a wonderful day and the staff on board were very friendly and took as many pictures as possible! Recommended.
