Edinburgh Castle and Vintage Bus Afternoon Tea for Two
Combine a trip to Edinburgh’s most iconic attraction with a delectable afternoon tea aboard a vintage bus. Sitting grandly atop the plug of an extinct volcano, the famous Edinburgh Castle looms above much of the city’s skyline. Enter this historic dwelling and make the most of all activities within, such as laying eyes on the Scottish regalia, Britain’s oldest surviving crown jewels. Then change pace with a 90 minute tour aboard a vintage London bus. Having begun life as a 1966 Routemaster, the Red Bus Bistro is now a charming dining vehicle on which friendly staff serve afternoon tea. Tuck into cakes, mini quiche and warm, home-baked scones with a glass of Prosecco each while gazing out at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Old Town and more.
