Highlights & Hidden London Bike Tour

London, United Kingdom

Check local COVID-19 restrictions before booking

Experience hosted by Chris

3.5 hours
Includes equipment
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Cycling in a leisurely fashion along London's network of cycle lanes, park routes, riverside pathways and smaller backstreets we'll see unique perspectives and hear entertaining tales of London past and present. There is something to discover around every corner, so be prepared to truly experience the city and create memories that will last for a lifetime.

We'll take in unique perspectives, and hear entertaining tales, of the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, the London Eye & St Paul's Cathedral.

What sets the tour apart from a more typical experience, though, are visits to an upside-down church, bomb shelters used in WWII, London's most exclusive private school, the world's smallest police station, the city's oldest wig store, a statue of Hodge, Dr Johnson's favourite cat, and the 'Banksy Tunnel' - London's largest legal graffiti zone.

When scheduled, we'll also avoid the crowds and get a front-row seat to the Changing of the Guard ceremony at our hidden spot, adjacent to Buckingham Palace; and we'll also include a refreshment break at Covent Garden for a bite to eat, a pint, or a chance to take in a street performance in front of St Paul's church.
Other things to note
Please call 07824 353274 if you're unable to find the meeting point, or running late. Please do try and be on time, though, as it's unfair to make other guests wait around.

I'm the founder of BrakeAway Bike Tours, the number 1 rated Outdoor Activity on TripAdvisor. I have been dispelling the myth that London is a non- cycle-friendly city for over 10 years, taking advantage of the city's medieval street plan to discover iconic locations and hidden delights like no other tour can.

My intricate knowledge of London's cycle lanes, riverside pathways, park routes and lesser-known backstreets, always following the road less travelled, allow our guests get to sample a Londoner's London. The routes are safe, avoiding traffic at all times, and always fun, with something unique to discover around every corner.

Young or old, cycle enthusiast or couch potato, history buff or insta influencer, there is something for everyone on my tours. Join us a guest, but cycle like a local.

Where you'll be

We'll explore hidden back streets and city squares, that take us back in time, magnificent architecture - both modern and venerable - and lesser known nooks and crannies missed out on by many a visitor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 3 reviews.
