The London Bicycle Tour Company is London's original bike tour, operating since 1991. Our Tours are safe, suitable for all standards and offer an exciting way to discover the best sights of London. You will be provided with a bike and helmet, and escorted by a guide on a three hour tour through the capital, using mainly quieter streets and bike paths. The Central London Tour is a great overview of London's most famous sights. The West End Tour takes in the Party atmosphere of Soho and the shopping areas of Mayfair and Carnaby Street. The 2012 Games Tour takes you East to see the wonder of the Olympic Park and Venues, as well as Europe's largest shopping centre for lunch. For more freedom, the company also offers a bike hire service. Tours are offered daily in English, German, Dutch, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Japanese.To get up close to the sights, and have the freedom you want as a tourist, you must take a guided tour with London Bicycle Tour Company.

We had a very nice tour on super good bikes in the center of London. The guide, Rich explained what we saw, and did not explain too much :) We enjoyed the tour very much, it took about 3 hours, and we had time for a small cafe in a park. It was a very nice way to see London.... More

No bells, no kickstand, no rear-view mirror - all very unsafe when it comes to riding. Helmet was also optional and no water was provided on a 3.5 hour ride. A child was placed on a bike seat in front of the father. Not surprisingly the child's foot got caught in the wheel. A very ugly scene. The guide, while... More

I hired a car from Europcar for 2 days through the GROVE Hotel at Watford. The instruction was to pick up and return the car at the hotel. But, Europcar did not show up to collect the car at the hotel. I called their hotline a few times but did not succeed to talk to their staff. I finally managed... More

The bike tour is an extremely effective way to get to see as much of London as possible. You can move faster than walking speed without being hindered by traffic and cars. London is an extremely bike friendly city, and I never felt uncomfortable biking alongside cars in the bike lane. The tour guides are extremely considerate of people who... More

This is TOTALLY worth your time, but heed what I say...WEAR THE HELMET. You will be biking in actual London traffic with buses, taxis and lorries the entire tour! Also, be SURE to pick a loud-mouthed tour guide. There were three tours leaving when we signed up, one Dutch, two English. Our guide, while good, was very soft spoken and... More

This is a must for anyone visiting London. It was so informative and fun. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and really engaged out two teenagers in the experience by asking questions and sharing things that would interest them. The place is a little hard to find but it was worth the effort.

With 4 hrs to pass before our flight we couldnt have enjoyed London more than our 2 hour bicycle ride! A great way to see and feel london intimately and not from a bus or cab. The rental was at fair price,bikes worked great and we received locks, and the London Bicycle Company were friendly and professional!

We took the Eastern Tour with Allissa as guide. She is a very good guide, kind and informative. We saw places that we never would have found ourselves. We can highly recommend this tour. Mats & Lena

We booked a Central London Guided tour. Our guide was Rob. He showed us several interesting points of his city. We've had tours in a lots of major cities in Europe. Coming from Holland i'm used to cycle around a lot, but cycling in London was big fun. Keep up the good tour Rob!!!!

Staying in Southbank

Neighborhood Profile
Southbank
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
