The Original Spice Girls Bus Has Been Turned Into An Airbnb

The Original Spice Girls Bus Has Been Turned Into An Airbnb

The original bus from the 1997 Spice Girls movie has been transformed into an Airbnb - and you can book it from next week.

The Union Jack-covered double decker, which acted as the bands' tour bus in Spice World, has been converted into a plush, three-sleeping accommodation brimming with references from the movie.

As well as pink Union Jack cinema chairs, zebra print carpets and 'Girl Power' neon signs, you'll also find small touches that your 90s-self would be proud of, including a tub of scrunchies and disco balls.

The bus will be parked in Wembley Park to coincide with Spice Girls' reunion tour dates at Wembley Stadium.

The squeal-inducing listing is available for a maximum of two nights, with bookings opening on 22nd May at 8am on a first come first serve basis, so make sure you get in there quick. We're expecting this to be as hard to book as actual Spice Girls' tickets.

The only downsides are that there's no kitchen facilities, toilet or running water on the bus. Instead, a temporary toilet will be provided just a few steps outside. As for food, the host will provide snacks, but for a good meal you'll have to head out to the shops or take advantage of the restaurants in the area.

Some slight inconveniences, sure, but will you really care? YOU'LL ON THE SPICE GIRLS BUS, for crying out loud.

The Airnnb advert states that the iconic bus isn't suitable for children or pets, and parties or events are not permitted. So no Spice Girls bus raves, please.

Aside from that, there's only a few important criteria for guests to adhere to: a '90s dress code', double denim is 'permitted' and Girl Power is 'essential'. The ad also states that selfies in the driver's seat are encouraged and there's a 'Compulsory rendition of 'Goodbye' on check out'.

Just brilliant.

Host Suzanne Godley, originally from Manchester who now lives with her husband and two children on the Isle of Wight, explains that she has loved the band since she was a child.

She says: "I adored their music growing up and used to choreograph routines to all my favourite songs! I watched Spice World on repeat and never thought I'd get the chance to go inside the actual Spice Bus - so to get this opportunity and now be able to share with other fans is just a dream come true.

"I've been lucky enough to work with some amazing designers on converting the bus into accommodation with the support of Airbnb, and I can't wait to share it with my fellow fans."

You can book the bus here.
