Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market an exciting opportunity to purchase this business that offers afternoon tea tours based in Brighton onboard a 1965 Routemaster RML bus.

Brighton Regency Routemaster has been run by our client for a number of years successfully but would now like to concentrate on their other business interests.

The business offers customers the chance to travel in style on board the bus that has been restored into a fine dining mobile restaurant experience, providing traditional afternoon teas along with the very popular Brighton Gin or Prosecco afternoon teas, taking in various locations and iconic landmarks around the popular Brighton coastline. The bus can also be hired for private events such as weddings & possible corporate events.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the very high quality of the services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations to help generate future bookings.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps with a new owner embarking on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent services offered. The business already has an informative website in place to promote the business that could be further promoted along with the use of social media platforms to help increase the turnover for the business.

Included in the sale:
1965 Routemaster RML fully refurbished bus
All fixtures and fittings

Very rarely do such well-established, popular businesses come to the open market, therefore early enquiries must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

The business is currently located in the popular seaside resort of Brighton, due to the nature of the sale, the business could be relocated anywhere within the UK giving numerous options for the potential buyer.

The bus is a 1965 Routemaster RML, that has been fully restored and highly refurbished to seat customers at tables for 2 or 4, licensed for 40 seats and 11 standing.

Further benefits include, air conditioning, PA system, CCTV, and a galley area with running hot and cold-water supplies. The bus has a class 6 MOT, with full-service history provided and is fitted with digital tachograph.
