Remember when you used to curl up on the sofa reading the latest Smash Hits, with your Spice Girls CD playing loud and scrunchies in your hair?
Well now all you debt riddled 20-somethings can relive the Spice Girls magic with a stay on the actual Spice Bus.
The iconic bus has been listed by Airbnb to celebrate the reunion of the Spice Girls and their nationwide concerts.
The Union Jack emblazoned bus is parked in Market Square, Wembley – a stone’s throw and within listening distance of the arena where the band will be playing all this weekend.
Suzanne Godley is a huge Spice Girls fan and jumped at the chance to renovate the bus.The bus has been renovated by huge Spice Girls fan Suzanne Godley after her boss mentioned the bus was for sale and she encouraged him to buy it.
With a design team she led the project and transformed it into the ultimate double-decker sleepover Airbnb.
The bus wasn’t just a movie prop, it is a 1978 British Leyland Bristol VRTSL3 double-decker, formerly used for public transport, but the new interior is a long way from the 70s.
Feel the Girl Power in the cinema area and settle in to watch Spice World (Picture: Tash Salmon/Metro.co.uk)The wooden panelled walls give a cabin-style feel to the cosy lounge including cinema chairs and all the 90s DVDs and CDs your pre-teen self could dream of.
There is also a mini fridge and a collection of Top of the Pops and Smash Hits magazines that give you all the feels.
Up the animal print stairs, the bedroom includes a double bed and day bed, suitable for sleeping three people – the perfect slumber party number.
The bus sleeps a maximum of three people with a double and day bed available.The blankets and cushions around the bus give it a comfy feel and keep you warm at night, making you feel like you’re glamping on four large wheels.
The bus itself doesn’t have any bathroom facilities but a porta-bathroom is provided plus showers – my 7am dash in a bathrobe outside the Wembley arena was quite something.
The outside showers and bathroom as the bus does not have facilities on board.Wembley’s Box Park is just a two minute walk from the bus and offers a food hall and bar plus often hosts events and club nights.
The Greek wraps and pizza went down nicely before a round of drinking games back on the bus.
The bus is what you want, what you really really want for the ultimate 90s throwback night to relive the girlie sleepovers of your preteen weekends.
Staying on the Spice Girls bus
The Spice Bus is booked out for all the nights it is in Wembley.
Don’t panic though – the bus will be going back to the Isle of Wight with Suzanne where she plans to list it on AirBnb long-term.
Keep your eyes peeled for a Spice Girls experience on the Solent.
