Champagne Gourmet Odyssey with an Arriva London Heritage Fleet Routemaster
Arriva London are proud, once again, to be the providers of the mode of transport to deliver London’s most original gastronomic road trip - the London restaurant festival’s Champagne Gourmet Odyssey.
The Odyssey comprises of your first course in one top London restaurant, your main in another and dessert in a third – with Champagne with each course - travelling between restaurants on one of our iconic Heritage Fleet Routemaster buses. Visits to Trullo, Noble Rot and Aquavit are just some of this year’s highlights.
Now in its ninth year, with Arriva London’s Heritage Fleet buses part of the festival since its inception, the London Restaurant Festival, with over 350 restaurants taking part, runs right through October with this last coming weekend being the final opportunity to celebrate with Gourmet Odyssey this year.
The four buses involved - RML 901, RM 6, RM 2217 and RM 1124 - are all historic vehicles in their own right, and give participants in the Odyssey the opportunity of experiencing a moving history of London’s transport, whilst at the same time delivering them some of the most exciting culinary delights at some of the most modern gourmet restaurants.
It’s not too late to have a Gourmet Odyssey this year; if you hurry, you can still get on board.
However, if you miss the opportunity, then maybe start planning for next year and if, in the meantime, you’d like to experience our Heritage Fleet buses for any of your special occasions or celebrations, then call our Commercial team on 020 8271 3411 or send us an e-mail.

We train our drivers in all aspects of customer service, and as we often hear from our passengers, our staff go above and beyond the call of duty to help, be it someone with mobility difficulties or maybe someone who is looking for directions.
If you want to transport a party of people to a special destination to help them celebrate a great occasion, you could do no better than hiring an Arriva Heritage fleet historic Routemaster.
The generosity of our staff is reflected in Arriva London receiving the prestigious Government’s Charity Aids Foundation Platinum Award last year, which means that over 20% of the staff give to charity through the company’s Payroll Giving scheme.
Arriva London supports local communities in many ways, so when asked to be involved in this project for yet another year, the decision was an easy one.
