What can be more English than having afternoon tea? Having afternoon tea on a big red London double-decker. Last weekend I and a group of 16 other bloggers were invited by Thistle Hotels to take in the London sights aboard one of the capital's retired route-masters, while sipping on tea and nibbling on delicate cakes.
The plates and trays were stuck to the table with plastic sucker thingies. Which was good cause the bus would've been plastered with cakes and scones if they hadn't. When we got to Hyde Park Corner we indulged in salmon blinis, tiny quiches and a variety of finger sandwiches. In front of the Royal Albert Hall we enjoyed sweet tarts and macaroons. On High Street Ken we had a very fluffy scone with clotted cream and jam.
Two hours later we were back to where we started from. Perhaps not filled with new impressions of London sights, but certainly filled with lots of tasty food and fun memories of this Thistle Hotels bloggers event.
