Windsor Bike Ride Including Thames Valley Countryside

6 Reviews

  • Location: London, United Kingdom
  • Duration: 3 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 5452WCBIKE
Discover quintessential England by bike on a 3-hour tour of Windsor and Thames Valley in the morning or afternoon. Just less than an hour by train from central London, the scenic countryside is home to pretty English villages and some impressive sights, such as Dorney Court mansion, the 2012 Olympic venue of Dorney Lake, Windsor Castle and Eton College — all included on the 8-mile (13km) route. Learn about the area from a guide, and enjoy a refreshment stop at Dorney Court, too. Numbers are limited to 14 people, ensuring personalized attention.
Select a morning or afternoon tour, and then meet your guide at Windsor and Eton train station, approximately 40-50 minutes by train from central London. Put on your helmet, hop on your bike and pedal behind your guide to explore Thames Valley, the area surrounding the royal borough of Windsor.

With its green fields and historical waterfront houses, Thames Valley is an idyllic example of English countryside. Cycle through quaint English villages and soak up the scenery before a refreshment stop at Dorney Court, a Tudor mansion set amid acres of parkland and landscaped gardens.

Feeling rested, continue on to Dorney Lake, a stretch of water that was used in the 2012 Olympics. Hear how Prince Harry honed his rowing techniques on the lake, and learn of the excitement around the time of the Olympics, when the venue hosted thousands of spectators to see rowing and kayaking events.

Pedal back along the traffic-free banks of the Thames River and come face-to-face with a majestic riverside view of Windsor Castle. During a brief stop, listen to fun facts about the royal monument’s history — from its beginnings as a Norman fort through to the present day home of Her Majesty the Queen—and pose for photos with the castle as your backdrop.

From the river, swing past Eton College, where many of Britain’s prime ministers were educated, and then return to central Windsor. Your tour finishes within an easy walking distance of Windsor Castle and the train station.

We absolutely LOVED this bike tour. It was really small and our guide was fabulous. The ride really was easy (so no worries there). It is so much more than just a bike ride to Windsor! I got to see so much more of the surrounding area than if I would have just taken the train. The views were stunning and getting to explore Eaton was really interesting. I highly recommend this as it also includes the skip the line tickets into Windsor. Saves so much time! Truly lovely :)

It was perfect. The very well maintained bikes were waiting for us after the train trip. The bike ride through the English country side was perfect and riding past Royal Windsor race course, Eton rowing facility and watching the river boats and swans was all perfect. Our guide was really good.
