Get up close to some of the most powerful and historic buildings in the world on this 3-hour bike tour of central London. Follow a guide as you take in the architectural diversity of Westminster, Buckingham Palace, and St. Paul’s Cathedral; explore the bustling Covent Garden; and brush shoulders with the bronze lions in Trafalgar Square.
Your journey starts at Gabriel’s Wharf, conveniently located a stone’s throw away from Waterloo station.

Equipped with a bike, your guide will lead you across Blackfriars Bridge and onto Victoria Embankment along the East-West Cycle Superhighway, London’s latest exciting initiative to improve cycle safety.

Stop first at the boundary of the City of London and the Metropolitan capital, and hear why the river became slimmer in the 1800s.

Then head to Cleopatra’s Needle for spectacular riverside views of the Southbank with its iconic London Eye. Cycle right under Elizabeth Tower, with Big Ben towering over you.

Stop next in Parliament Square for views of Westminster Abbey and the Palace of Westminster right under the gaze of Winston Churchill, before heading off to Buckingham Palace — via St. James’s Park — in time to catch the Changing of the Guard. If you're lucky, the royal standard flag will be raised and you may catch a glimpse of the Queen as she takes up residence in her office.

From here, it’s straight to Trafalgar Square to see Lord Nelson on his pedestal, guarded by bronze lions not far from elegant fountains, before continuing to the cobbled streets of Covent Garden, an area renowned for its high-quality restaurants and street performers.

Then pedal towards London's oldest quarter, as you enter the heart of the legal district, making your way past Lincoln's Inn Fields. Follow the old cattle routes to Smithfield Market to learn more about its turbulent past and gruesome medieval tales.

Afterward, take a moment to admire St. Paul’s Cathedral before crossing over Blackfriars Bridge and heading back to the wharf.

Great way to see parts of East London that we wouldn't have known about on our own.

Our bicycle tour was terrific. Fun, informative we covered an amazing amount or area given the casual pace of the ride. My wife, who normally refuses to ride in traffic LOVED it and so did I.
