Ultimate Sunday in London: River Thames Bike Tour, Camden Market Shopping, and Westminster Abbey Organ Recital

Begin your Sunday bicycle ride in the morning in Central London’s South Bank, where you’ll meet your friendly and knowledgeable guide at Gabriel’s Wharf and be fitted with a bike and helmet. Then, head out with your small group at a leisurely pace – suitable for all cycling abilities.

Riding along the south side of the River Thames, pass the iconic Globe Theatre where Shakespeare’s plays are still performed. Then, go by Tower Bridge and the London Docks, leaving the riverside for Hackney and Camden via Regent’s Canal.

This winding, peaceful path almost completely encircles Central London and the West End. Stopping along the way, your guide will tell you how the city’s waterways were the lifeblood of the Industrial Revolution and 19th-century “old London town.”

Next, bypass the traffic along the canal as you head toward the lively Camden Market. Here, enjoy a bit of free time for bargain hunting as you stroll among more than 1,000 retail shops and stalls, or purchase lunch (own expense) from a variety of street food stands representing countries all over the world. Your guide will be happy to offer recommendations.

After your break, get back on your bike and continue along the canal path with your small group, passing the London Zoo toward Little Venice and the greenery of Hyde Park. Stop at the park’s Speaker’s Corner to admire the long-held social tradition of orators gathering on Sundays to preach from impromptu soapboxes.

Next, whiz along The Mall, a long road leading to Buckingham Palace, and finally to Westminster Abbey, the Royal Church of England. Inside the Abbey, England’s coronation church since 1066, enjoy a 30-minute organ concert showcasing a wide range of music. As you listen to the melodies, look around and be awed by the treasure trove of paintings, stained glass and textiles that decorate the magnificent church. Afterward, return to Gabriel’s Wharf around 6pm.
