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.

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!!!!

We went on this bike tour on our last day in London, which was a mistake. This bike tour took us around to so many amazing places that we hadn't visited, and didn't have time to visit since it was our last day. I would suggest scheduling this towards the beginning of your trip so you'll have time to revisit... More

We took the three hour highlight tour and we really enjoyed this. The highlight of our stay. Best to do it the first or second day, as it gives you a feeling for the city.The bikes are good and the guide Marieke was funny and energetic. You will need some biking experience, I would not recommend below 15 years. Tour... More

We went on this tour today with Dominic as our guide. He was great! We saw almost every significant location in central London in less than four hours. The weather was fabulous, and the crowds were fairly light. Dominic gave us a witty, informative narrative at each stop. We learned so much about London with very little effort. This really... More

It wasn't our first time in London. But this journey still gave us something new. And, of course, different transport (bicycles) makes the city different. Thanks to our guide Alisa - she made it very joyful!

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.
