Matthew was an excellent guide, we were delighted at his knowledge of London and the way he navigated around the city keeping us safe and engaged. His gentle nature and steady pace make this the most enjoyable way to see what is the best city in the world. We all saw and heard new things about a city we know... More

This tour was all it promised,and more; well worth the money and time. The guide, Mathew, was personable, knowledgeable and very good at what he does. We went all over London, from one side to the other, and never felt rushed or in a hurry. If you want to see the real London, from the touristy spots to the backroads,... More

On Saturday 17July we embarked on a Cycle Tour witt Mathew. We = seven Belgians between 40 and 50 years old, soon joined by two Bostonian girls. The cycling tour was simply fantastic! Mathew showed us parts of London I'd never heard about. It was a real eye-opener! In fact it was the top experience of our three-day citytrip to... More

Agree with most of what previous reviewers have to say about this cycle tour - well run, efficient, surprisingly easy. One of our group was not a very confident rider, and hasn't cycled for a long time. Mathew was able to pick out a safer route but which didn't bypass any of the attractions still - quite a number of... More

This is an outstanding way to get a feel for London and plan for further attractions you'd like to see. Our guide, Mathew, was fantastic and in addition to a fun ride through all the best spots and attractions we were treated to some great commentary as to what we were looking at or riding through. The ride is fun... More

Went on afternoon ride with Mathew (the young owner of this enterprise) thru the East End, South Bank of the Thames, Barbicon, Brick Rd, the Financial District, and more! He's bright, full of fun and macabre stories of London, careful about the safety of his client riders, and went well beyond the allotted time because no one in our group... More

Forget about seeing London on some silly bus. This is the only way to go. Yes you see all the tourist sites but the quiet back streets you take to get to many of them are the real attraction. Well worth it. And no you don't need to be a Tour de France rider to do this.

Myself & my friends did the East End Tour on a Sunday morning and it was absolutely brilliant. Great being out in the fresh air and seeing London from a completely different perspective, both because we were on bikes but also its a totally alternative view of London. I've lived in London almost 20 years and knew none of what... More

If you like to see more of London as Westminister und Buckhingham Palace you should book the East End Tour with Mathew. It's an adventure to visit popular places and also "treasure" places by bike. Our guide, Mathew took us - not only with his fantastic stories about sunken red buses - to interesting places e.g. Barbican, Rose Theater, G.F.... More

Forget the bus tours or walking tours. This is the only way to see London. Matthew was great. We rode through parks, along side streets, and past all the sights. Sometimes we were the only people on a gorgeous street. If we had rented a bike there's no way we would have found some of the hidden gems that Matthew... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighbourhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
