What people are saying about St. James's Park

The bus is a hoot! Absolutely fabulous and well worth a trip! The afternoon tea was delicious, the cakes are divine and the range of teas and coffees to choose from really good too. The tour guide is good as she points out key facts but you are also treated to some good old music from the 80's which absolutely topped it off to be a really great afternoon out. Id highly recommend this if you're looking for something different and not the 'normal' afternoon tea experience!

Absolutely fantastic, girls were great , enjoyed every minute of my day , afternoon tea was amazing , worth every penny , left them a tip which we were sad to see that my sister & I were the only 2 to tip them , how sad at xmas when so much effort was put into it , xmas lights & music made it so enjoyable, as much tea & coffee as u liked & a great variety. Also got to keep the cups and left with a doggy box fir the left over cakes.

Superb afternoon tea on the upper deck of the bus. It was my friends special birthday treat and made even more special as she had a an extra slice of cake with a candle, all the passengers sang Happy Birthday and a little gift too. She enjoyed herself immensely so did I. The staff very helpful, pleasant and cheerful.

It was amazing. I enjoyed London views with delicious snacks and tea with my friend. It's few days before Christmas so the scenery was ideal. It was a really really enjoyable! I hope I'll do it again.

Everything was amazing!! Can not fault anything. We have a waiter who was new and you wouldn’t have even known- he was brilliant! We would love to do it again and will recommend to everyone!
