Paddington Afternoon Tea Bus Tour Route

The girls had so much fun listening to the tour..

We just finished Paddington tour bus! Best experience in every way and will try different tours.

I booked this for my daughters 7th Birthday. The food is beautiful presented! Very cute and vegetarian menu very good in selection. The girls had so much fun listening to the tour. Our hosts JP, Vince and Anna were amazing and very friendly. The hygiene is well considered, staff wear gloves when serving the sandwiches. We are definitely going to try different theme tour with Brigit Bakery again!

Yy 5 yr son loved the bus, cakes & souvenirs.

Really enjoyed our experience on the Paddington themed afternoon tea bus tour. I took my 5 yr son and he loved the bus, cakes and souvenirs. Would definitely recommend, particularly if you have young kids and want to show them the City of London.

It was like entering a parallel universe of fun & tasty treats

I took my two sons aged 11 and 6 on the inaugural Paddington Afternoon Tea Bus Tour with Brigit's Bakery. And we had such a good time. It was like entering a parallel universe of fun and tasty treats. The sandwiches and cakes were delicious - we sat down really hungry and left completely stuffed. The staff were friendly and attentive. And it was fun having Paddington and Mrs Bird narrating our journey around London. A wonderful activity to do over the half term holiday.

The team were exemplary!

We were on the second Paddington themed bus tour and the team were exemplary! Very professional and made the experience extremely special for my son and I. We sat right at the front and had the most wonderful afternoon, even despite my little one suffering from motion sickness. I highly recommend!

VIEW ON GOOGLE MAPS ›

Will we be able to get off the bus?

No, the bus is only permitted to pick up/drop off passengers at our designated locations.

Is there a toilet on-board?

No, there is no toilet on board our Paddington Bus Tours. There are no public toilets at the Trafalgar Square departure point.

I would love to book a Paddington Bus Tour – why is it only for over 5’s?

Due to the length of the tour and having no toilets on board the bus, our Paddington Tours are best suited, and enjoyed, by children of 5 years and over. Parents / guardians must be confident that all persons in their party will not need to use toilet facilities for the duration of the whole experience.

Please be advised that no standing or walking is permitted during the tour. Parents are responsible for assessing whether their children are capable of remaining seated on parents' laps or on their own for the duration of the 1hr 45min tour. Parents are also responsible for keeping their children seated during the tour.

Do you allow babies on board?

No, unfortunately we are unable to allow babies on board. However, if you’re a large group and would like to hire out the entire lower or upper deck, we are able to make exceptions to this policy. Please call one of our team to discuss and arrange your booking on 020 3026 1188.

Are there changing facility on board?

No, unfortunately as it’s a classic Routemaster bus, space is limited, so there are no toilets or changing facilities onboard.

Is there somewhere to park our buggy?

No, we’re afraid that space is very limited on board the bus, so there’s no room to store buggies.

Are there seatbelts for the children?

No, we operate a 1960’s classic Routemaster bus, which was not fitted with seatbelts. Health and safety does not require us to install seatbelts however we do insist that all party members remain seated. Please be advised that no standing or walking is permitted during the tour. Parents / guardians are responsible for assessing whether their children are capable of remaining seated on parents' laps or on their own for the duration of the tour. Parents are also responsible for keeping their children seated during the tour.

Would you advise having two children per adult maximum?

We recommend having two children between 5-12 years old per adult. Please be advised that no standing or walking is permitted during the tour. Parents are responsible for assessing whether their children are capable of remaining seated on parents' laps or on their own for the duration of the tour. Parents are also responsible for keeping their children seated during the tour.

Is there a first aider on board?

Yes, all staff on board are trained in first aid.

Open-Top Bus Tours in London

Open-Top Bus Tours in London

If you are looking for a fun and easy way to explore London, you might want to consider taking an open-top or hop-on hop-off bus tour. These tours allow you to see the city's most famous landmarks and attractions from a comfortable and convenient seat on a double-decker bus. You can also hop off at any stop and explore the area on foot, then hop back on when you are ready to continue your journey.

One of the best open-top bus tours in London is the Big Bus London Hop-On Hop-Off Tour and River Cruise . This tour lets you choose from three different routes that cover the main sights of London, such as Buckingham Palace , Big Ben , Tower Bridge , Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square, and more. You can also enjoy live commentary in English or personal commentary in 12 languages on board. Plus, you get a free one-way river cruise on the Thames that offers a different perspective of the city.

Another great option is the Vintage London Bus Tour Including Thames Cruise with Optional London Eye. This tour takes you on a nostalgic ride on a classic Routemaster bus that dates back to the 1960s. You will see some of the most iconic places in London, such as St Paul's Cathedral , The Tower of London, and The Houses of Parliament. You will also get to enjoy a scenic cruise on the Thames and have the option to add a ticket to the London Eye for a spectacular view of the city.

If you are a fan of Harry Potter, you might want to check out the London: Harry Potter Walking Tour + Hop-on Hop-off Bus + River Thames Cruise. This tour combines a 24-hour hop-on hop-off bus pass with a guided walking tour of some of the locations featured in the Harry Potter films, such as Diagon Alley, Platform 9 3/4, and The Leaky Cauldron. You will also get to cruise along the Thames and see some of the landmarks that inspired J.K. Rowling's magical world.

No matter which open-top bus tour you choose, you will need a comfortable and convenient place to stay in London. That's why we recommend Mercure London Paddington , a four-star hotel that is located just steps away from Paddington Station, where you can find many of the bus tour pick-up points. Mercure London Paddington offers modern and spacious rooms , free Wi-Fi, a fitness center, and a restaurant and bar. It is also close to many attractions, such as Hyde Park , Kensington Palace, and Oxford Street . Mercure London Paddington is the perfect hotel for your London adventure!
