Full description
Your journey starts by Kensington gardens. The first stop in this beautiful Royal park is Kensington Palace. Next, you cycle to the Royal Albert Hall, London's most classic venue, built to memorialize Prince Albert and the now the host for everything from the Miss World contest to rock concerts. Feel free to do your own "Last night of the proms" or stand back and listen to one of your guide's anecdotes and stories about the British Empire. You then follow the "rotten row" and the Serpentine in the amazing Hyde park to the statue of one of England's greatest war heroes. From here, you head downhill on Constitution Hill along the Green park, (the route where Queen Victoria had three assassination attempts on her life) to visit the official residence of the Royal family, Buckingham Palace. Maybe you will be invited in for a cup of tea? Your next stop is Trafalgar Square, right in the heart of London. Find out what happened to Lord Nelson in Trafalgar and all the pigeons that once lived here? Then it is time for 250 meters by foot down to Whitehall, the political center of England. Next up, take some selfies at Big Ben before you go back through the Royal parks to the meeting point which is also the end of the line. But please don´t rush off without challenging your guide with any questions you may have about museums, markets, shopping, sport or other ways to enjoy this fantastic city.

    The bike ride was very doable in terms of cycling distance. The guide knew a lot about the sights and gave good advice on what to do in London in the coming days. The guide took into account his company and provided something for everyone and took the heat into account (looking for shade during explanations and many stops to have a drink)

    One of the best excursions I have ever booked. The guide, Ola has so much knowledge on history, current affairs and insight on the sites that this is the best way to see London. I honestly recooked this to any traveler and suggest you do this tour before anything else. The bike ride was not rushed, we had plenty of time to view sites and it wasn’t as tiring as I expected it to be. Honestly this was the best excursion I booked.

    Very knowledgeable and helpful guide (he also stored out luggage as our plane landed late!). Good stops and leisurely pace. Nice bonus for the guide to have tea/coffee, cakes and fruit on hand at our last stop. All in all a very enjoy ale way to see London sites in an afternoon session overground. Would definitely use this company again for other tours they offer on our next stop in London.
