Have a quintessentially British day by visiting the world-famous Buckingham Palace and having afternoon tea on our Bella Vista bus! 

Buckingham Palace
Open to the public only during the summer, this is a rare chance to see what’s inside the world’s most famous working palace. 
Explore the beautiful State Rooms, which are used by The Queen and members of the royal family to entertain guests on official and ceremonial occasions. Once lavishly decorated under the vision of George IV, these stunning rooms feature many key artworks from the Royal Collection – including paintings by Canaletto and Van Dyck.

Walk around the Palace’s beautiful gardens (which take up a total of 16 hectares) and see the Palace tennis court, where George VI and Fred Perry played in the 1930s!

Bella Vista Afternoon Tea Bus London Tour

Jump on one of our traditional double-decker buses for a 90-minute journey across the capital’s best landmarks and enjoy the delicious selection of finger sandwiches, wraps and cakes on what promises to be an unforgettable ride.
