Afternoon Tea On A London Bus With Bloggers
Sunday rolled on and as if by magic, London was beautifully bathed in glorious sunshine when giggling bloggers jumped on board the afternoon tea tour bus run by BB Bakery, some were so eager that they managed to get on the wrong BB Bakery tour bus(they were politely ushered off).
We were also in the good company of a dashing Tom from Thistle Hotels who was on hand to answer our questions we had about the hotel, most of which are in easy access to many of London’s tourist attractions.
So if you are heading over to London for business or pleasure then you have plenty to choose from. I didn’t even know they had that many Thistle Hotels dotted around the capital.
The Best Saved For Last
When we got on the bus I volunteered to connect my phone to the on-board speaker to add a little ambiance to the tour. Little did I know that I would be handsomely paid.
I started off with a little jazz by way of Brazil’s Belbel Gilbert before moving on to some more popular tunes. The popular tunes obviously had an effect on the girls because we soon realised that we had ourselves a Backstreet Boys tribute band on board as they started a duet.
As soon as I recognised the tune, I found it on Spotify no sooner than I got it on the speakers all hell broke loose. And they say volunteer work doesn’t pay! Don’t worry I got you front row seats to Britain’s Got Talent.
The video is below! You can thank me later. If Thistle Hotels want to have the entertainment to go with their Afternoon Teas, I am sure the girls wouldn’t object to an encore. You can bet I will be there too with camera in one hand and cake in the other.

This is great. Sometimes when we live somewhere we take it for granted and seeing it from another angle is the best way to keep it fresh. Looks like a wonderful day.
I am from the Caribbean island, Barbados, once a British colony. So we know about the tradition of afternoon tea, and it is nice, indeed. However, I have the chance to experience tea in the middle east and it is beyond beautiful. Particularly the presentation and simplicity.

Nothing beats a girls tea party London routemasters. Definitely worth booking when you visit London in April.
Hey do you know if the tour also passes by the b and b bakery covent garden shop?
Hi, the tour we did passed by the b and b bakery in Knightsbridge and not the Covent Garden, I am not sure if their other bus do. Sorry I dont know this but you can check their website for an updated tour map.
I have been searching for a b bakery bus tour review and yours just stood out. Your pictures seriously make me want to book a tour so badly. I can’t wait to visit London this new year.
Haha, each time I look at the pictures I want to eat cake too lol
Do you have any tips on b bakery afternoon tea discount code Bee?
Hi Emmette, am afraid not. As I said above, this is a popular tour and one that doesn’t do discounts that often. Sorry.
Amazing pictures. I am adding the bb bakery afternoon tea bus tour in london when I visit in December!
Thanks! Yes, its such a cool treat!
I love your pictures and the little video! One of the best bb bakery afternoon tea bus review I have read in a while.
Hi do you know of any bb bakery afternoon tea bus discount for bookings?
Hi Lena, I am not aware of any discounts. Now and then in the quieter seasons they might do offers but as its a popular tour they dont tend to offer discounts that often.
This is actually useful, thanks.
Beautiful pictures. I love to do at least one afternoon tea in London I visit. I had no idea about this one of the bus. This is so cool!
