Gin Safari

Saddle up for a juiper-fuelled jaunt across London

View Upcoming Trips

The Gin Safari takes you on a juniper-fuelled jaunt across London to reveal a story of gritty social history and the city’s turbulent affair with its favourite tipple.

As we wobble our way around picturesque Dickensian architecture, libations of ‘mothers ruin’ will be served from our custom made GinCycle, a rickety Victorian gin parlour on wheels, to enhance your appreciation of different styles and flavours that will tickle your tastebuds.

The Gin Safari celebrates all that is eccentric and best about the British.  No need for a stiff upper lip – Expect a gentle cycle with food markets, colourful graffiti, fabulous views, interesting insights, crude jokes, and, of course, plenty of gin!

Tally Ho!

Cycle & explore

Riding a beautiful British-made ‘Pashley’ bicycle you’ll set out for the vibrant markets of South London. Taste & smell some of London’s best street food, and drink a G&T (or few) with likeminded gin lovers along the way.

Enjoy tastings from the GinCycle

Sip on delicious gins served from our custom made gin bike that help bring the stories to life.

Explore local London

You’ll ride through the pretty residential streets of Southwark & Bermondsey to discover hidden gems.

Leave Your Mark

Try you hand at spray painting in a colourful graffiti zone where British graffiti street artist Banksy hosted the Cans Festival.  We’ll supply you with spray paint! 

A Foodies Paradise

London has some of the best street food markets in the world, some even dating back over 1000 years! Be sure to bring some cash and an appetite.

Make History Fun

Each gin you sample tells a different chapter of London’s fascinating story – we happen to think that the Gin Safari is the best history lesson ever devised.

“Indeed a must do to go around the city. The coolest spots and a funny ride where you can also get some culture about the unknown history of London. Even if you barely remember how to ride a bike (my case)…Strongly recommend it!” Catarina Francisco
