Red Bus Bistro Harry Potter Themed Afternoon Tea #Review

Red Bus Bistro Harry Potter Themed Afternoon Tea Review: September 2019

Witches and wizards leave your broomstick and wands behind, as Red Bus Bistro will work their magic and fly you around Edinburgh…on the wheels of a fabulous vintage 1966 Routemaster bus of course!

The 70 – 90 minute tour takes in Edinburgh Castle, the Elephant café, along with many of the locations that inspired J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series of book such as Spoon Café, greyfriar’s cemetery and George Heriot’s school which is believed to be the inspiration for the Hogwarts architecture.

The Red Bus Bistro team will sort you into your house, whip up some wizarding incantations and spells to create a magical mouth-watering Harry Potter themed Afternoon tea…swish and flick.

With lighthearted, fun and factual Harry Potter themed commentary from our wizarding Mr Potter, I am sure you will score his performance much more than 9 ¾!

Red Bus Bistro Harry Potter Themed Afternoon Tea Review 3

Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin whichever house you are in, you will love the full Afternoon tea, it was delicious with a range of sandwiches, scones and sweet chocolate treats.

Also, enjoy some “I-Can’t-Believe-It’s-Not-Butter-Beer”, alcoholic and non-alcoholic options are available, and some fab jelly beans too, but only the yummy flavours. Just keep an eye on Hedwig, as he is partial to a jelly bean or two.

You even get to have your selfie moment with Hedwig, as you sit proud in your house colours…for me I am a Gryffindorrrrr.

You may even be lucky to see a game of Quidditch in the park and even in a busy time such as Fringe, the team made the Harry Potter themed tour a spellbinding magical experience.

Don’t Potter about, get this one booked before it’s too late!

Thank you for reading 😊

  3. Yep, all you had to say was Harry Potter and I was sold! I would love to travel back to London and the surrounding area to do all of the Harry Potter things. I’ve seen Platform 9 3/4 at Kings Cross, but I was there before there was much else.

  7. I’ve seen the bus around town, but what fun to see inside it for once! We have been to all the Harry Potter locations of course – there’s a Quidditch team that practices in the park near us too.
