Today is my Mums birthday and i booked the B Bakery Bus afternoon tea for us both. It has been a few weeks since my last afternoon tea so i was having scone withdrawal symptoms !!!!!!
They do not normally have offers for this afternoon tea but i managed to get a 25% discount code from another website so it only cost £82.50 for 2 of us instead of £110. I booked seats on ther top deck of the bus which i think is more expensive than lower deck. I do think you get a much better view from the top so worth paying the extra.
I booked the early bus leaving Victoria coach station at 12 noon. I was informed by a friend that there are no toilets on the bus so we made sure we went at the station before getting on.
The tables were already laid with a double tier cake stand in middle of table plus a savory muffin on our plate .They had noted my food request of no fish and no mayonnaise for my mum so we had slightly different sandwiches. We was offered a hot drink of our choice and given it in a souvenir cup with a lid and hole to drink through. I think this is due to health and safety as the bus was sometimes a bit jerky !!!! My mum tucked into the sandwiches straight away as she was really hungry. She liked the fact that the bread was buttered so they were not dry like some sandwiches we have been served at other places.
The whole bus tour latest about an hour and half during which the famous landmarks were pointed out to us . Sometimes it was a bit hard to hear what they were saying over the music that was constantly playing in the background. As we got near to the coach station i noticed that most of the other tables had sandwiches and cakes left on their stands which the 2 young waiters gave them boxes to take them home in. We had nothing left not even a crumb !!!!!!!!!!!!
