To celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday, I decided it would be a unique and fun experience to dine on a bus. Yes, a bus! The Bustronome combines sightseeing in London with fine dining, and takes you past iconic London landmarks such as the London Eye, London Bridge and St Paul’s Cathedral. It’s definitely a great experience for a special occasion, and a different way of enjoying the views of London!

We had to arrive at bus stop 40B at Victoria Embankment (Embankment station) where the bus would arrive at 12:15pm (you must arrive 15 mins earlier).
Booking & Pricing:
You can book online for either the Lunch slot, Afternoon Tea or Dinner. They have set menus for each one. We went for the lunch menu, which we were kindly gifted. It normally costs £65 per person for a 4 course meal (excluding drinks). You can check our their menus here. The bus tour lasts about 1hr45 mins in total.
Food & Experience:
When we were seated, the waiter gave us an interactive map of the landmarks that we were going to pass, and a speaker which talks to us about the history and background of each place as we go past them. We didn’t use the map much though as we were too focused on the outside and taking photos, but it is really useful for tourists who aren’t familiar with London!
The luxury-bus restaurant had a glass roof-top which gave us a panoramic view of London – it was stunning!
For starters, we had crab and artichoke with tobiko in crab and wasabi sauce, and a crispy roll with goat cheese and beetroot. For our mains, we had seared tuna and carrot purée with girolle mushrooms and tarragon sauce. It was so good!
For dessert, we had strawberries and ginger pavlova sorbet. I was a bit sceptical about the ginger at first, but it actually tasted nice!
Overall, we had a wonderful experience aboard the Bustronome and saw London in a totally different light – to be honest, we’ve never really noticed just how beautiful our home city is! We could really appreciate why people would be attracted to London. This luxury bus tour combines beauty and leisure, and you can discover the most beautiful views of London while enjoying a luscious 4 course meal!
