About Us


Pauline, Kitty and Jean are our three afternoon tea buses. They are named after Karen’s grandmothers and great aunt as, like us at Vintage Tea Trips, they welcomed everyone into their home for tea and cakes whether you were the postman or the Pope.

It is this sense of nostalgia and the door always being open that we wish to always recreate on board.

Pauline, Kitty & Jean are three fully restored Routemaster buses. These front engine double decker buses were designed by and for London Transport. Each with their own history and personality they bring that special something to our experience.
