Secret London Bike Tour
Activity code: SBT
- Ride through Tate Modern,Shakepeare's Globe Theatre,Southwark Cathedral,Borough Market,Tower of London,London Docks,Tower Bridge and many more.
Rough, bold and bursting with character, the East End was once a frightening place that even the police dodged if they could!
The SECRET LONDON TOUR follows a route along the river taking in attractions like the Tate Modern art gallery and Shakespeare’s Globe theatre, whilst also visiting Borough Market and the glorious Southwark Cathedral. After safely navigating Tower Bridge (our guides are expertly trained to keep you safe from the villains and foul-mouthed characters that once lurked here!), we explore the Tower itself and ‘Dead Man’s Hole’ to see if we can retrieve any bodies found floating in the river Thames!
Moving quite literally from rags to riches, we next explore the old docks of the East End, the Battle of Cable Street mural and wonderful Artillery and Brick Lanes, before moving on to the splendours of the City of London, including The Bank of England and the Royal Exchange. Yet, not quite finished with London past, we show you the place from where the Romans measured all distances in Britannia, the flame-topped monument to the Great Fire of London and the historic ‘Bow Bells’, from where all true Cockney’s are born within earshot.
Inevitably, the tour has its wacky stories to tell – such as the ‘Leap of Faith’ by a London Bus over Tower Bridge; The pub with a legendary ancient tunnel to the Tower of London; And the mysterious ‘Angel of the Thames’ (maybe you’ll be lucky enough to spot her!) who guards over all residents of ol’ London town.
It’s simply impossible to summarize the amazing SECRET LONDON TOUR, combining medieval history, legend, scandal and modern glamour. Yet, one thing for certain is that everybody who joins us will leave with a picture of London that they could never have previously imagined.- just remember to bring a camera….
