Full description

Enjoy a 3.5-hour bike ride around the classic sights of London to see many of the city’s most historic sites. Meet your guide, then head off on your ride, hosted by London's original guided bicycle sightseeing tour.

 

Starting at Big Ben, admire the Houses of Parliament across the river, and continue past Lambeth Palace to cross Lambeth Bridge. Cycle past small red brick houses lining the streets, which offer an enchanting contrast to the imposing historical monuments.

 

Appreciate the belfry of Westminster Abbey. Then cycle over to St. James’s Park. Catch the pomp and pageantry of the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. Then head back to central London to walk safely through Trafalgar Square, with Lord Nelson looking down from his column.

 

Cycle over to Covent Garden, and take a break to watch some street theater in the market’s central piazza. Then, climb back on your bike for the ride through London’s legal district, and over to the colorful Leather Lane Market and Smithfield’s Market, London’s lively meat market.

 

Pass Wren’s amazing St Paul’s Cathedral, and cross back to the south side of the Thames on the famous Westminster Bridge for the end of the tour.

Recently experienced this ride with George. The ride was good, and you are provided with bikes that are very easy to ride, but recommend you’ve ridden a bike before. The guide takes the group on routes that are safe and majority of the ride is on paths or low traffic side streets. When the group needs to cross heavy traffic (once or twice over the tour) the guide manages the group through very nicely. This was a very scenic ride making plenty of stops at many of London famous sightseeing destinations. The guide provided plenty of information and humor along the way, and was very entertaining. This was the best thing I did over my week stay in London. Highly recommend.

Super fun bike ride with great guide! With a group of about 13 people we explored London by bicycle with a Dutch guide. You will pass (almost) all the highlights of London, and also some lesser-known spots (which are super fun to see!). Ideal way to explore the city. Highly recommended to everyone!

Birgit, our city guide, is the best. I learned a lot about London and we were at Buckingham Palace at the right time to see the Change of Guard from the front row. She just has perfect time management. I can only recommend a tour with this provider. Everyone is very nice there.
