Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Saddle up at Gabriel's Wharf, located on the south side of the river in Waterloo. After choosing a bike, your guide will escort you along the riverside, down side roads and alley ways though central London. Stop along the way to admire the amazing engineering achievement of the London Eye and hear the story of Big Ben and The Houses of Parliament.
Continuing along the river, cross Lambeth Bridge and cycle past the small red brick houses that line the streets. Pass though the courtyard of Westminster School – from which you can admire the belfry of Westminster Abbey – then over to St. James park. An early start means you will not miss the pomp and pageantry associated with the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace. Afterwards, head back to central London, where you'll walk through Trafalgar Square before cycling to Covent Garden.
Take a break to watch some street theater in the market piazza before getting back on the bikes. Your ride takes you though London's legal district and over to the colorful Leather Lane Market and Smithfield's Market.
Finally, stop for a look at St. Paul's Cathedral and then cross south on the famous Wobbly Bridge back to the starting point.

Best way to see Central London!

Already left a review on Trip Advisor, but I don't mind applauding this tour more than once. Catherine our guide was great. Don't expect fabulous bikes, but it doesn't matter. There are enough stops to see and learn about the sites that the quality of the bikes don't really matter. We would do it again! 🙂

Good fun and interesting. It's difficult to find activities that suit all our children as wide age bracket - but they all really enjoyed this one. Thank you Ollie our guide.
Highly Recommend!

We had an incredible tour! Hands down going on a bike right away when getting to a new city is the best way to become familiar with it. Our guide Ollie was so great and made all the history, stories and facts so interesting! We saw so many sights in a short amount of time. You must already know how to ride a bike to do this. London is a bustling city and the streets aren't the easiest to navigate sometimes. This is a must do on your first day in London!
Great way to see london

I did an electric bike tour in Prague and really wouldn't want to tour another city any other way. However, this regular bike tour was still amazing and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Loved this tour! London by bike is such a fun experience, and we got to take in some sights that we otherwise would have missed. The only downside was that sometimes we were a bit nervous driving in traffic with the double-decker buses.

I would recommend, I enjoyed getting an overview of the city while experiencing a chance to get the vibe of each area in which we stopped. Lots of historical and current interesting facts. Our guide, Ollie, was energetic, professional, and safety conscious as we rode on the streets.
