About the experience

Could there be a more quintessentially British way to take in the sights of London than with a Vintage Open Top Bus Tour and Afternoon Tea at Harrods? We think not! These special tours are conducted on authentic, fully restored and maintained open top Routemaster double decker buses, which continue to hold a special place in the heart of both tourists and Londoners alike, even in the years since where they have been gradually replaced by their newer 21st century counterparts. You’ll hop on board the bus at Victoria Coach Station, and with a tour guide on board to offer running commentary and insights, you’ll take in all the main sights and attractions, from Big Ben to Trafalgar Square, and St Paul’s Cathedral to Tower Bridge. Your tour will then break for a short time, as you disembark at the pier by the Tower of London, where you’ll take a quick cruise up the River Thames to Westminster. Alighting the bus once again, you’ll then head from there up to Buckingham Palace. Then once you’ve stopped for photos outside the gates, you’ll head back to Victoria, where, upon disembarking, you’ll head off to Harrods to enjoy a delicious afternoon tea, with freshly baked scones and lashings of clotted cream and jam, and you’ll also get to take photos outside the Tower of London to finish!
