Best London Evening Bike Tour

London Evening Bike Tour

Meet your guide in Southwark, central London, and after listening to a quick safety briefing, put on your helmet, hop on your bike and set off on your way. Following your guide, pedal toward the River Thames, getting a feel for the mystery and romance of London’s riverside as the sun goes down.

Pass the iconic London Eye – a monument that was built to celebrate the Millennium but proved so popular that it had to stay – and then work your way east in the direction of the City of London, stopping every so often to soak up the evening sights and relax. Continue toward London Bridge, the city’s best-known river crossing, discovering the origins of the nursery rhyme London Bridge is Falling Down. Cross beautiful Tower Bridge – a testament to both the Victorian’s grandeur and ingenuity – and explore the north side of the River Thames

About half-way through your tour, stop for a well-earned break in one of the city’s historical pubs for a drink, and then continue your tour on the north side of the river. Cruise past the Monument to the Great Fire of London (known to Londoners as simply, the Monument) and cycle around the Tower of London, hearing tales of Beefeaters, ravens and glistening Crown Jewels. Pedal to Leadenhall Market – one of London’s hidden 14th-century gems – and hear how it featured in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

Cross the river again and see Shakespeare’s Globe -- a beautiful reconstruction of the Elizabethan playhouse where Shakespeare’s plays were originally performed – before returning to Southwark under the shade of the moonlight. Your bike tour ends here, after four hours of cycling London’s city streets.

Great tour! Fun. The tour guide was excellent. He was a local, so extremely knowledgeable about not only the historical part, but gave information on general information about the city. Friendly and personable. Definitely take this tour if you enjoy a nice bike ride intertwined with history.

Great way to see London from a different perspective. Our guide Matt was very personable and knowledgeable. Thoroughly enjoyed the well organised tour around London. Nice to meet fellow tourists as well. I would recommend this trip - the fact we had a beautiful balmy evening definitely helped as well.

We have figured when travelling abroad the most effective way to look at a new city is by going on a bike tour. So with this in mind we booked the Fat Tire Sunset Bike Tour in London and we were totally amazed and delighted with the result. The tour guides very extremely friendly, patient and so knowledgable of London and all its history. We came away with a more indepth and hands on look at London than what we could ever see from a bus. The tour was prefectly timed so that when we rode onto the London bridge it was dusk and the spectacular vista of Tower bridge with her lights was breath taking. We found that we went back to the special little places a few days later to have a good look at and realising the we wouldn't have known that they were there if not for the bike tour. I 100% recommend this tour to any one visiting London

This was an awesome tour. Jamie was an excellent guide and had lots of interesting information to share. Visited all the sights I wanted to visit. We kept a perfect pace and all got to know each other by the end. The stop at the pub at the end was a good time, too. I'd definitely recommend this for a fun, relaxing night in London.

It was a great quick way to see London! I only had a few hours for my layover so this was perfect timing for a tour: 6pm - 10pm.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2013

One of the best tours we took. The guide was friendly and educated and it covered south London at night in a spectacular way.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2013

This was a great experience! It was our first bike tour and I think that I have a new favorite way to see the city. Fat Tires Bikes was great. Our guide was informative and knew so much about the area. He was responsive to my dad's bike that gave him a hard time and made sure that it was fixed quickly. I would highly recommend this tour. Additionally, I will look for Fat Tire Bike tours specifically in other cities since this was so much fun!
