On Monday 26th June, we made our way to Victoria Coach Station for a unique Afternoon Tea. Upon arrival, we searched the departure boards for the ‘B. Bakery’, and headed to the departure gate. Here, we were greeted by a smartly-dressed staff member, and led onto a beautiful, vintage red bus.
We were shown to our table on the top deck, and were immediately impressed by the beautifully laid out food and decorations. Jolly music lent a delightful atmosphere, and everything suited the occasion perfectly. Once everyone had taken their seats, the engine started and the tour began.
Before long, we all tucked in to afternoon tea. The selection included sandwiches, mini quiches, sweet tarts, cupcakes, pastries and – of course – warm scones. Vegetarian, gluten-free and halal options were also available, and the attentive staff were on hand throughout to top up unlimited teas, coffees and soft drinks.
Soon, our focus was drawn from the delicious food to the eye-catching sights of London. The route passed familiar landmarks – like The London Eye, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace – and an informative pre-recorded commentary provided some fascinating facts. Meanwhile, our guide offered their own comical take!
As service came to an end, we felt reluctant to disembark – though a parting gift made for a wonderful last surprise! After a fantastic afternoon, we’d all definitely return to enjoy another B. Bakery Afternoon Tea London Tour.
