You can now sleep in the Spice Girls Bus

People of the world can now spice up their lives and spend a night in the iconic Spice World bus!

 

Suzanne Godley purchased the bus Union Jack painted bus that’s featured in the 1997 movie and decided to turn it into every Spice Girl’s fan dream retreat. Fellow girl power enthusiasts will have a chance to relive the celebrated movie this June. The Spice Bus will be situated in the heart of Wembley Park, where guests will be able to stay overnight on June 14 and 15.

 

 

The renovated living area is modern, beautiful and filled with touches of nostalgia. Like pink Union Jack cinema chairs below a ‘Girl Power’ neon light installation, and vintage 90s magazines and CDs to help recreate the 90s era.

Upstairs there’s a dressing area where guests can channel their inner Posh Spice and make the tough decision about whether to wear the little Gucci dress, the little Gucci dress, or… the little Gucci dress. The adjoining bedroom is fitted with a striking animal-print carpet that Scary Spie would be proud of and provides comfy bedding for three guests who get to call the Spice Bus home for the night.

The Spice Girls were my childhood obsession. My parents were subjected to my tone-deaf performances as Baby Spice, and I must have watched the Spice World movie hundreds of times. And while I have grown up over the years, I don’t think I’ve ever grown out of my love for them.

When my boss mentioned that he was considering buying the Spice Bus I was desperate to be a part of its renovation. We’ve worked hard over the past few months to turn the bus into a home, in keeping with its legacy, and I’m so excited to open it up to the public with the support of Airbnb. Being part of this project has been like a dream come true and I can’t wait to meet other Spice Girls fans through this experience.
