Overview
Enjoy an afternoon cycling around central London and see the West End’s sights from the saddle of a comfortable bicycle. Experienced guides will escort you along the riverside of the Thames, down side roads and alleys to discover London’s heart.
What to Expect
Enjoy a 3-hour afternoon bike ride around central London to see many of the city’s most historic sites. Meet your guide on the south bank of the River Thames, close to the Southbank arts complex, and select your bike. Then, head into the back streets of Waterloo and for the first 'Theatre' stop, Kevin Spacey's Old Vic.

Banksy's graffiti tunnel installation follows the street food markets of Lower Marsh, and all of a sudden, it's back onto the river at the majestic Lambeth Palace, the residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury (the Church of England's equivalent of the Pope!). Cycle along the River Thames to Lambeth Palace, one of London's oldest buildings, and home of the head of The Church of England.

Now, cross to the north side of the river to explore the lanes of traditional red brick houses, cycling though a back gate into Westminster Abbey School courtyard, the first school in England. Just outside the school, you will be standing on the place where so many kings and queens have had their coronation, and been buried in the crypt of Westminster Abbey.

Cycle past Horse Guard’s Parade - site of the 2012 Olympic Beach Volleyball Competition - St. James's Park, Clarence House, and Buckingham Palace, the Queen’s official London residence. Then, bike up Constitution Hill into the open spaces of Hyde Park.

From Hyde Park, travel through the exclusive Mayfair district, past the US Embassy, New Bond Street, Carnaby Street, and into Soho, the party center of London. Pedal through the back streets and alleyways of Chinatown to Covent Garden, home of the Royal Opera House, street theater, and much more. The trip is nearly over, as you wind your way back to the river and cross Waterloo Bridge, where you will get one of the best views of London on a curve of the river.
