'What could be more British than afternoon tea? Well, how about afternoon tea aboard an old red 1960s Routemaster bus? This sumptuous and indulgent tour mixes two quintessential experiences to form something completely unique. Nibbling on delicate sandwiches, exquisite cupcakes and, of course, freshly baked scones with clotted cream and jam and sipping fine tea (or perhaps champagne), you will drive around the capital in serious style aboard an historic double decker, the very kind that adorns a million postcards and is now, sadly, no longer a common sight. A truly unique experience. Now, please pass that cucumber sandwich...'
