Get on board and enjoy an afternoon tea tour on the Red Bus Bistro’s vintage 1966 Routemaster Bus, while taking in the stunning sights and historic culture of Scotland’s capital city Edinburgh. The Tour explores all the main attractions in Edinburgh, including the historic Edinburgh Castle, Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Old Town to name a few. Duration of tour is between 70 – 90 minutes. The Routemaster RML 2549 was registered and started its service in 1966. It initially serviced the Aldenham Route, after two months of service it then moved onto the Hackney route where it remained for the next 4 years.
Red Bus Bistro is truly a moving restaurant experience! It is a totally new experience in dining for residents and tourists. The buses operate daily Afternoon Tea Tours from 12pm and 3pm, See the sights with a glass of fizz or a bottle of beer. If Afternoon Tea is not to your taste, not to worry! Then try the later Gourmet Burger tours at 5:30pm… if you don’t fancy burgers, they also have alternatives on offer.
If 5:30pm is still a little too early for you, The Red Bus Bistro offer occasional multi-course dining evening tours from 7pm on some days. These tours are longer (2-3 hours) and include two comfort break stops in between courses in order for staff to serve up whilst the bus is not in motion. The vintage 1966 Routemaster bus (the iconic red bus on the postcards) is equipped with a fully-fitted stainless steel galley kitchen, seating for up to 40 diners, an expert & talented on board chef and congenial staff to help make your experience that bit smoother.
