Ideal for travelers seeking an alternative experience of London, this 3.5-hour bike tour allows you to stray from the beaten path and discover local London. Focusing on the lesser-known east side of the city, this tour covers the Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, and the industrial Dockyards. Browse enticing food stalls at Borough Market, cycle across the iconic Tower Bridge, and admire the latest additions to London’s skyline, including The London Shard and The Gherkin. 

What to Expect

Your tour begins at 1 Gabriel’s Wharf, located a short walk from Blackfriars underground station. 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 splendour 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 unrivalled masterpiece of Sir Christopher Wren, where you’ll pose for photographs before returning to your original departure point.
