How can I book the Peppa Pig tea bus tour?
You can go to the website to book the tour and select your preferred date and time for the super special Peppa Pig tour. When you book, you can also select whether you sit on the upper deck, lower deck, or if you want the VIP tour.
If you want the best views of central London, the upper deck is preferred, but when we went, only the lower deck was available and we still had a great experience.
How is the tour structured?
When you arrive, staff members will meet you and check your name off of their lists. This is not a hop-on, hop-off bus tour so plan on being on the bus for the full 90 minutes.
There is a bathroom on board, but staff will encourage that it is only for children’s use. You may want to pack hand sanitizer for cleansing your hands. Strollers must be folded to be boarded on the bus.
As the tour begins, you will hear the familiar voice of Peppa and their friends from the special built-in tablet at each table. The tour video features all of your favorite Peppa Pig friends narrating your London tour of all of the historical landmarks. The tablet devices and long songs help keep your kids engaged while on the tour and also give some great background on what you are seeing!
While you tour past landmarks, you can also feast on the delicious snacks provided right at your table!
What snacks are provided on the tour?
The official Peppa Pig afternoon tea menu offers such yummy snacks! There is plenty of food for all of your little piggies. The themed afternoon tea menu includes Daddy Pig’s pizza mini Margherita, Peppa Pig’s cookie shortbread (Peppa-shaped biscuits), Freddy Fox’s Egg and Cress finger sandwich, Mandy Mouse’s cheddar cheese finger sandwich, and Granny Pig’s mini scone.
My kids also loved the crudite and breadsticks with hummus. Of course, the indulgent treats are delicious! The Peppa Pig tours have chocolate truffles, Mummy Pig’s strawberry macaron, George’s seasonal fruit tart, and Rebecca Rabbit’s carrot cupcake (my favorite!).
What are the drink offerings on the afternoon tea bus tours?
