Afternoon Tea Bus Tour

A friend recently treated me to Afternoon Tea with a difference.  We spent 90 minutes aboard a classic Routemaster London bus, sipping tea and scoffing nibbling dainty sandwiches and tiny cakes as we went.IMG_1346.JPGIt was great fun, although I was initially rather concerned about sloppage from the teapots … no need.  Your preferred hot drink came in a funky thermos cup, which you then got to take away with you. IMG_1352.JPGWe saved  a few of the wee cakes to take home for our kiddos as an after school treat.  I thought that was very noble of us …  IMG_1349.JPGYou can find more about Afternoon Tea on a London Routemaster bus here.  It’s a little pricey, but terrific fun and maybe worth doing for a special occasion.

  1. What a fabulous idea – afternoon tea while getting a sightseeing tour of the city. What a lovely way to spend an afternoon, and I’m very impressed that you were kind enough to take home a ‘doggy bag’ for TBC!

  2. OH this would be something I really would do & now I must search to see if the Toronto reds do this type of tour. If not, I am going to suggest! The treats look scrumptious & if I was there, there would be no survivors on the treat tray.

    I read a funny post about the spell of “thermos” that muggle born Hogwarts students were taking their tea thermos to class & pure bloods wanted to know the spell for keeping their tea hot … muggle born said oh it’s just a thermos & then the pures started pointing their wands at the mugs of their tea and saying “thermos” and hence how some new spells made their way into the wizarding world.

  3. I’ve seen this advertised a few times and wondered whether it wa worth the money – looks like I might be adding it to the list of things to do!
