The cycling tour begins at Gabriel’s Wharf, located a short walk from Blackfriars underground station, where you’ll greet your guide and grab a bike suited to your size. Following a short cycle, you’ll be thrown into the quaint red-brick lined streets of Waterloo, home to the renowned Old Vic theater.
Pedal down Lower Marsh, a street lined with vintage shops and hip cafes, and explore the graffiti-clad tunnels of Waterloo’s subterranean vaults, known by locals as the Banksy Tunnel.
The next stop is Archbishop’s Park, a secluded green area backed by the 15th-century Lambeth Palace. Stop to admire the palace's intricate façade and then continue to Westminster Abbey School, from which privileged views of Westminster Abbey are enjoyed.
Glide past the grand official buildings of Horse Guards Parade and through the greenery of Hyde Park until you arrive in Mayfair, an elite area full of exclusive clubs and luxury hotels. Travel back to the swinging 60s as you cycle through Soho and Carnaby Street, the former stomping ground of The Rolling Stones, and navigate bustling Chinatown before arriving in Covent Garden.
Your tour concludes once you’ve cycled back over Waterloo Bridge to your departure point in Gabriel’s Wharf.
