Are you looking for a unique and quirky wedding reception for your big day? How would you like to welcome your guests onto a classic red double-decker bus? Well, your dreams have just come true here. If you’re looking for a wedding bus hire in London, you’ve just found the best of the best when it comes to London bus hire!
Wedding transport on the Brigit’s Bakery Routemaster buses
Picture this. It’s your wedding day. You’ve just tied the knot with the love of your life and had the perfect ceremony, surrounded by close friends and family. How about celebrating by taking a trip down memory lane on one of our vintage buses? Pretty special, right?
The great news is that all our classic buses are available for exclusive hire. So if you’re looking to host your wedding reception in style, while traveling the streets of London on a fully-catered, stunning red bus, this is your chance!
When hiring a Brigit’s Bakery bus for your wedding reception, you get a 90-minute afternoon tea bus tour (depending on traffic) across the streets of London. Departing from either Victoria Station or 8 Northumberland Avenue, we will drive you past some of the capital’s most renowned landmarks, including Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, St James’s Park, Hyde Park, The Royal Albert Hall, Marble Arch, Nelson’s Column, Downing Street, and much more.
Because it’s your wedding (and the special occasion of all special occasions!), we are also able to offer you personalised routes with specific departure and arrival locations – you just need to tell us what you’d like us to do, and we’ll do our best to accommodate you. We can also extend the tour for you if you like, so if you’re looking for something more tailored, just ask!
During the tour, our staff will take the best care of you and your wedding party by serving you our quintessentially afternoon tea with a French twist – we call it L’Afternoon Tea. And because we love you, we’ll also give a free Brigit’s Bakery takeaway mug to every single one of your guests!
So what can you expect on the menu?
