London's Best Kept Secret Bike Tour

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in the morning at his 100 year old house only a one minute walk away from Colliers Wood underground station in South London. You will be provided with a bicycle and a helmet before setting out on a 12 mile trip lasting around 4 hours. We will start off admiring old cottages along a river, that was once known as 'Europe's hardest working river', because of the amount of waterwheels that operated here. We will stop at London's only still working waterwheel which is now part of a local market and you will learn about an important monastery that included a massive church and once inhabited this site. We will continue along winding paths to one of South London's most beautiful parks, steeped in history and you will learn about the industries that made some inhabitants of the area incredibly rich. We will than follow the river to an ancient village which became a part of London but has kept it's charm and and has one of the United Kingdom's tallest tree and ponds full of wildlife. We will stop at the fantastic 17th century village pub before turning back.
