What you'll do

Master the art of riding these splendid machines on a tour through Westminster in central London. After meeting us at London Scottish House, 95 Horseferry Road, Westminster, SW1P 2DX, we will introduce you to the Penny Farthing bicycle, provide you with your equipment including helmets and let you know what you will be doing during the experience. Then we will head out onto the streets where you will learn to safely mount, ride and dismount. Keen to ride more? Then we will head out on a leisurely guided journey around the Westminster area, past many iconic locations such as the Palace of Westminster, Parliament Square, Churchill War Rooms, the gardens of 10 Downing Street and Buckingham Palace. After a short photo break, roll on back to London Scottish House and return to the present day!

Neil

Hello! Both Neil and Alberto are passionate Penny Farthing riders and we love sharing our very special mode of transport with others from around the world. We started the Penny Farthing Club in 2014 and have taught hundreds of people to ride this iconic bicycle. We have ridden Penny Farthings all over the country and sometimes quite long distances such as Lands End to John O'Groats! We enter international races, ride at charity events and participate in the technically difficult (and slightly dangerous) sport of Penny Farthing Polo! We host this experience in old-fashioned outfits reminiscent of Victorian times!
