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.

We took the London Bicycle Tour using our London Pass today. The advertising is right, the best way to see the sights of London is by bike. Our tour leader Olly, was awesome! He lead us around the streets of London, stopping for photos and giving our group a fantastic history lesson, filled with interesting facts and great enthusiasm and... More

I booked this tour as part of our trip to London and it was wonderful! Domenic - our guide - was not only informative but took care in our safety throughout the busy city. Travelling through London on a bike was not only fun but truly the very best way to see the city! I would highly recommend this tour... More

We took the West End tour at 10:30 a.m. on the last full day of our time in London. It was included in our London Pass and we may not have chosen it if it wasn't already included. I don't believe it would have been one of the top choices for my wife but both of us were really glad... More

You don't have to be in top shape to do this tour but you do have to be good at maneuvering a bike in traffic on the wrong side. Dominic (sp) was our guide, very helpful and friendly. Really good at keeping us safe in the very busy intersections. My son is 14 and really enjoyed the tour. We were... More

This was fun for three hours. My daughter and I took the tour on our last day, so we had pretty much seen most of the tour sights already. There's a lot of walking on the bike tour. If you want to learn about the sights, the tour guide is very important. To the first question I asked, my tour... More

Ignored several times waiting to be served so I could pick up my pre-ordered bike. Finally got served via them grunting and giving a bike to me. They grunted at the helmets and walked away. No standard checks that I am used to - height of seat is ok? / breaks work? / size ok? Etc. if I was a... More

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

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.
