London Bike Tour Saddle up at Gabriel’s Wharf, located on the south side of the river in Waterloo. After choosing a bike, your guide will escort you along the riverside, down side roads and alley ways though central London. Stop along the way to admire the amazing engineering achievement of the London Eye and hear the story of Big Ben and The Houses of Parliament.
Continuing along the river, cross Lambeth Bridge and cycle past the small red brick houses that line the streets. Pass though the courtyard of Westminster School – from which you can admire the belfry of Westminster Abbey – then over to St. James park. An early start means you will not miss the pomp and pageantry associated with the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace. Afterwards, head back to central London, where you’ll walk through Trafalgar Square before cycling to Covent Garden.
Take a break to watch some street theater in the market piazza before getting back on the bikes. Your ride takes you though London’s legal district and over to the colorful Leather Lane Market and Smithfield’s Market. Finally, stop for a look at St. Paul’s Cathedral and then cross south on the famous Wobbly Bridge back to the starting point.
