Explore iconic London's top sightseeing destinations
The Original London Bike Tour is a family-friendly journey through London’s East End, with the added benefit of bike rental. Since 1991, visitors have ventured out from Lambeth and along the banks of the River Thames, passing the world renowned Tate Modern Art Gallery as they head toward Shakespeare’s own New Globe Theatre. The contrast between its Elizabethan architecture and the Victorian Bankside Power Station is striking, but this is not the only unexpected sight to be seen along the tour - you'll also witness Borough Market, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, Dockyards, Blackfriars Bridge, and St. Paul's Cathedral.
Shakespeare's Globe Theatre is a reconstruction of the famous Elizabethan playhouse designed by England's eminent playwright - the Globe was the ultimate arena for performances of Shakespeare's masterpieces. Admire its of-the-time beamed exterior and feel inspired by the artistic atmosphere. Biking on to Borough Market, your efforts will be rewarded with some of the city's best street food and local produce in one of London's oldest and largest food markets. It couldn't be much more at odds with the monumental skyscrapers that tower over the Thames from the north, but London is a city of dramatic contrasts.
As you ride across Tower Bridge, you’ll be able to see some of Foster’s most brilliant architecture from the past century. Your guide will lead you on to a view of the infamous Tower of London, where many a sorry prisoner saw out a dark and gloomy sentence. More food follows, with a stop at the Captain Kidd, a waterfront pub nestled amongst the Dockyard's maze of warehouses, atmospheric alleyways and cobbled streets.
Your bicycle tour begins to journey back westward at this point, riding through the more contemporary business districts including the Square Mile, and the archaic bedrock institutions of Lloyd's, the Royal Exchange, and Mansion House. Before returning to Lambeth across the commanding Blackfriars Bridge, you'll pass under the majestic St. Paul's Cathedral, one of London's proudest landmarks, where, each year, millions flock to discover the majesty within the exquisite white exterior.
