What You Can Expect

Christmas Lights Bike Tour of London

Enjoy a hot mug of mulled wine at Winter Wonderland on your bike tour if you wish

Meet your guide at the Southbank in central London, put on your helmet and bike lights and then set off to explore some of the city’s top Christmastime attractions. Setting a leisurely pace, your guide will stop frequently so you can chat and take photos against London’s twinkling lights.

Cycle past the London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, and then head to Sloane Square and admire the snow-white fairy lights that adorn its luxury boutiques. Pass alongside Harrods, the quintessentially British department store with its windows laden with festive treats, and then make your way to Hyde Park Winter Wonderland — one of London’s top Christmas attractions.

Pedal around the Christmas stalls heaving with handicrafts and warming wintery treats, before stopping to enjoy a mulled wine (own expense) with your guide and group. Gaze out at the attraction’s funfair, and watch skaters swirling around the ice rink.

Continue to the West End to discover the Regent Street, Oxford Street, Bond Street and Carnaby Street holiday lights that are famous around the world. Thousands of LEDs, fairy lights and snowflake decorations are strung around the central shopping district, casting a magical Christmas glow on the shoppers below.

Swing past Seven Dials to see the small Christmas market at Covent Garden, and then make your way back to the start point where your 3-hour tour finishes.

This tour was amazing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

Biking in London is definitely an experience! I was the only one booked for my day (probably due to it being a Monday), so it turned out to be a private tour. My guide was fun and knowledgeable, also watching out for my safety in rush hour traffic...he even had a flat tire and was apologetic, (so a bit of down time) but I walked around taking pics as he fixed his flat and he extended the trip. I highly recommend this trip to anyone, especially if you want some exercise as you sight see, learn about certain landmarks, and it's a great way to familiarize yourself with different areas of the city!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

This trip I can really recommend as I enjoyed it a lot. The cycling was easy and we covered a large area and I realised how compact London is. The Xmas lights were a delight to see and the guide well informed ,
Cycling in London is always a highlight when visiting London.

4 star rating: Recommended January 2014

This was a most interesting tour, visiting in a short time many more places than could have been visited on foot. The guide was expert at keeping the group, which included some quite inexperienced riders, together, in the very busy pre-Christmas crowds. His commentary at stopping points was, of necessity, brief but always relevant. Some of the bikes would have benefitted from some mechanical attention prior to the ride.
