Central London Bicycle Tour

The best way to see London is on a guided bicycle tour! Our experienced tour guides have expert knowledge of the city. They will safely guide you around the city on cycle paths, parks and quieter streets, telling you the history of the city and the sights as the tour unfolds. It's suitable for young and old and goes at a leisurely pace. If you can ride a bike, you'll enjoy this tour

We Saddle up at our cycle hire centre at Gabriel’s Wharf located on the South side of the river near Waterloo station. After choosing a bike, our guide will escort you along the riverside, down side roads and alley ways through central London. We’ll stop along the way to admire the amazing engineering achievement of the London Eye, one of the largest observation wheels in the world, and then just under the bridge, the story of Big Ben and The Houses of Parliament, with plenty of time for photos. From the courtyard of Westminster School you can admire the belfry of Westminster Abbey, then over to St. James’ Park. The reason for starting early is to meet up with the (not to be missed) pomp and pageantry associated with the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. Heading back to Central London, we walk though Trafalgar Square with Lord Nelson looking down from his pedestal, then Leicester Square, skirting Chinatown, followed by Covent Garden.

Taking a break and watching some street theatre on offer in the market piazza we then get back on the bikes, and ride through London’s legal district and over to the colourful Leather Lane Market and Smithfield Market, London’s recently redeveloped meat market. With some horrible history! Then over to Sir Christopher Wren’s amazing St Paul’s Cathedral. With the river in sight, we cross south on the famous Wobbly Bridge past the Tate Modern Art Gallery, and you will now feel that you have a real orientation of London.
