Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your tour begins at a central meeting point. Greet your guide here, don a helmet, and select a bike suited to your size before cycling on Southbank towards the Tate Modern, housed in the former Bankside power station.

Continue past Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, a riverside replica of the original Elizabethan theater, and then park your bikes at Borough Market to browse enticing food stalls brimming with local produce. Sated by a selection of the city’s best street food, you’ll pedal across Tower Bridge to absorb views of London’s ever-growing skyline, home to The London Shard and The Gherkin.

Your next stop is the Docklands, an industrial labyrinth full of warehouses and alleyways. Stop to purchase a drink at a waterside pub before you cycle through the Square Mile, London’s former financial district.

Architecture enthusiasts will be delighted by the structural splendor of places such as Mansion House and the Royal Exchange as your guide leads you towards the City of London. Your bike tour culminates with a stop at St. Paul’s Cathedral, the unrivaled masterpiece of Sir Christopher Wren, where you pose for photographs before returning to your original departure point.

Doug took our group on a fun and interesting tour of London. His wit and insight into history along with unique stories about the city made this an enjoyable morning. You can tell Doug is passionate about his city and wants to share that love with visitors. An added bonus to our tour was when Queen Elizabeth passed us in a motorcade! She even waved and acknowledged the cheers for her!
