Basic Infos

You can get across the centre of town quickly and easily, and it’s the best way to work up an appetite for some of the city’s best snacks. The Barclays Cycle Hire scheme has made it easy and inexpensive to do London by bike.

Book your tour and get to know the city by bicycle, covering the classic sights that light up the capital’s skyline from Westminster to the City of London.

First stop:

Our first stop is the London Eye – pick up a bike from the dock on Jubilee Gardens, for our tour of the South Bank. The South Bank is very popular with tourists and locals so take care and don’t crash into anyone! Heading east, you’ll pass the Royal Festival Hall, National Theatre, and Oxo Tower. Keep going and you’ll reach Borough Market – one of London’s oldest food markets. It’s a great spot to pick up some snacks for a picnic, or just a tasty chorizo sandwich from Brindisa or an espresso from Monmouth Coffee to keep you going.

Suitably refuelled, it’s time to get back on the bike. Ride over London Bridge, and just in front of you you’ll see the Monument, built to commemorate the great fire of London in 1666. If you’ve got the energy, you can climb all the way to the top, for great views over the city. If not, keep pedalling – we’re heading west along Cannon Street. You’ll soon reach St Paul’s Cathedral, built by Sir Christopher Wren, and one of the most inspiring and beautiful churches in London. It’s also a great place to stop for a coffee if you need a boost!

Second Stop:

Cannon Street crosses over into Fleet Street, once the home of hundreds of scribbling journalists, now decamped out to Docklands. Look out for the art deco beauty of the Daily Express building, and the gothic style of the Royal Courts of Justice. Keep heading west along The Strand and you’ll soon reach Trafalgar Square, the site of Nelson’s Column. By now you’ll have seen some of the city’s most iconic sites, and avoided the crush of the tube by doing London by bike! I think it’s time to treat yourself to some fish and chips, or maybe a pint.

Well done, intrepid traveller!

Where we’ll be...

The journey starts from the cycle hire and tour centre in Lambeth, conveniently located a stone’s throw away from Lambeth North Underground station.
