"A right royal bike ride"~ The Guardian
Landmarks & Gems is our original award-winning, London bike tour. Joining a small group of riders, you'll experience the freedom of exploring London by bike.
You'll get an exciting introduction to London’s most iconic landmarks, Royal Palaces and discover many local gems along the way.
Following back streets and dedicated bike lanes, you'll ride up to Buckingham Palace, the home of the Queen. See the Royal Guards in their dapper uniforms.
Try your hand at street art in Banksy's graffiti tunnel. And stop to enjoy a refreshing pint of beer with your group at a cosy historic pub.
Once upon a time, Westminster was an island in the River Thames. Over the years it has developed into one of the most important places in London and the centre of British government.
But there’s much more to Westminster than Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. We'll reveal all of its local charm.
With over 11,000 listed buildings of architectural or historical importance, you'll explore many sides of this quintessential London borough.
See the Queens Guards
Get up close to the Queens Guards during the famous Changing of the Guard ceremony. Your guide will position you in the best part at the right time. On days with without a full ceremony, you will still get to see guards on duty.
*the full ceremony occurs on selected dates here.
Visit the Household Cavalry
On King Henry VIII’s former tiltyard - used for jousting - you'll see the ceremonial space where the Beating Retreat and Trooping The Colour are held each year for Queen’s Official Birthday.
It's also the formal entrance to Buckingham Palace, and guarded by the magnificent Household Cavalry.
Try street art
Visit the Leake Street tunnel where British street artist Banksy held the Cans Graffiti Festival.
The colourful walls change are a popular spot with local street artists.
You’ll even get to try you hand at graffiti...because, we supply spray paint! 😃
Taste local beer
Stop off at a cosy historic pub in the heart of Covent Garden. Sample some local ‘real ale’, and enjoy a pint of refreshing beer with fellow travellers. 🍻
You’ll learn all about traditional brewing techniques and see what makes British pub culture special.
✨ Harry Potter Locations 🧙
On this ride you'll also discover J. K. Rowling's inspiration for Diagon Alley, and cycle over the same bridge where the Knight Bus squeezes through the double decker buses in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
