This is one Brighton afternoon tea that is not to be missed

Let us spoil you

Nostalgia meets luxury as you settle into the traditional double bus seats, at tables set with crisp blue napkins, sparkling silver cutlery, and decorative glassware. Dark-blue velvet curtains are tied with golden tassels, while vintage-style lamps cast their glow overhead.

The hour-and-a-half bus tour gives you plenty of time to enjoy the award-winning afternoon tea, comprising a selection of finger sandwiches; sausage roll or savoury tart; individual mini-cakes, and, of course, delicious buttermilk scones with jam and clotted cream.

All served by friendly staff, with unlimited tea, coffee, or cold drinks. You’ll learn a little about the iconic places the bus passes, such as the Saltdean Lido – ‘One of the Seven Wonders of the English seaside’.

Going the extra mile

The popular seaside attraction is organised by Nicky Hedley, who draws on her successful career in event management.

She says: “It’s not just a bus tour; it’s not just afternoon tea – it’s a unique experience that takes you in style round different parts of the city, while you are served a selection of delicious freshly-made foods.”

The unrivalled afternoon tea starts from a little as £43 per person (12 years or under £30) and dietary requirements can be catered for, with vegan, gluten-free, and vegetarian options available.

If you fancy pushing the boat out, upgrade your afternoon tea to include a mini bottle of prosecco, or a Brighton Gin Cocktail.
