Re: So British!

Wonder if I can use my 'free ticket to ride pass' and get some free knosh as an added bonus? Probably not.

A great idea and nice to see someone thinking outside the box.

Outside the box, but inside the bus!

Thumbs up Re: So British!

There's a black one that is "GhostBusTours", but I didn't get a picture of it

Think I'd prefer the Tea Tour, but I bet they need really big saucers to catch all the slopping beverages.

Re: So British!

In these modern times surely they should have a "late night booze bus" with a bar onboard as it tears about London from night club to night club.

Re: So British!

I rarely go to London. It is so ... modern.

Anyway last time we were up there we saw this

http://www.pedibus.co.uk/

and as usual hardened Londoners ignored it as it went by. City slickers are notoriously difficult to impress.

Out here in Baarkshire we get excited if our kitchen roll has a pattern on it.

Re: So British!

With the amount of pot holes on our roads, this wouldn't be a good idea up here

We have a Boogie Bus that you can book to take you on a pub crawl around the NE

We have booze buses where I live, trouble is that you can hear them before you smell them before you see them.

Re: So British!

There's a Routemaster parked outside a restaurant an hours drive from here. I think you can sit in it to eat your burger and fries (or hotdog and fries).
