London Old City Bike Tour
From US$54,92

Eager to see as much of London in as short a time as possible? This bicycle tour provides the perfect speedy overview of the city. Traveling on two wheels, you’ll begin south of the river in Waterloo. See historical landmarks like Tower Bridge, spot filming locations for the Harry Potter films, explore the vibrant East End, and even pause for a pint (own expense) at a traditional riverside pub.

What to Expect

This afternoon tour kicks off just outside of Waterloo station. Follow your guide and cycle along the Thames River and onwards to the City of London: the most ancient part of the capital. As you go, spot modern marvels alongside Roman–era ruins, and learn more about the city’s rich past.

Then, you’ll continue into the East End: home to a vibrant mix of communities, and commonly considered London’s creative heart. You’ll cycle past colorful street art, buzzing bars and restaurants, and even filming locations for the Harry Potter movies.

Next, pause for refreshments at London’s oldest riverside pub, where you can take in the Thames scenery and sip a traditional pint of ale (own expense).

Once you’re refreshed, learn more about London’s canals and docklands, see historical landmarks like the Tower of London and Tower Bridge, and then pedal onwards to bustling Borough Market. The tour concludes at your original departure point.

Unique tour of a unique city

Tristan of Tally Ho did a great job taking a small, intrepid trio through winding passages, bicycle super highways, city gates, Roman walls and Captain Kidd's favorite pub. Old London is not, as we learned, what one thinks of when you think of today's London,...More
