Begin your morning or afternoon bike tour in central London, where you meet your guide and are fitted with a bike and helmet before setting off on an exciting city ride.

Over the next several hours, enjoy picturesque urban and pastoral views as your entertaining guide takes you past renowned landmarks and through London’s parks. Cruise through Westminster to the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. Your route leads directly past Westminster Abbey—the venue for every coronation since the 11th century and for 16 royal weddings—and then on to Trafalgar Square, where you stop to view Nelson’s Column and have lunch (own expense).

Afterward, pedal north to explore all four Royal Parks, view the stunning Buckingham Palace and visit the Princess Diana Memorial at nearby Kensington Palace. During each leg of the tour, you have a chance to pause, ask questions of your guide and snap some memorable photos.

Your ride ends at the starting point.

I did the Royal Parks...

I did the Royal Parks Bike tour on my last day in London/Europe as part of a month-long trip I did in June. This was one of the BEST ways to spend the last day of my trip - I had the best time! Our tour guide, Issac, was a great person to lead our group. He kept the pace of the biking easy for everyone and was extremely knowledgeable about everything royal in London. He shared so many fun facts, funny stories, and great information about the city, as well as a great place for lunch that I never would have known about had he not said anything. If you want something fun to do by yourself or with whoever you're traveling with in London, I would highly recommend Fat Tire Tours especially this Royal Parks tour. You will have fun, you will see plenty of sights and learn a lot as you go!! Thank you again Issac for a great time!

Lots of walking bike in crowded areas. Often not moving at all, just waiting for crowds to clear. Why bring a bike? The bikes are not very comfortable

Excellent guide, very friendly, knowledgeable and funny. The weather was gorgeous and we covered a lot of ground by doing the bikes. Most biking is done in various parks so there's very little street biking or if it is it's done on car-free streets or with very little traffic.

My wife and I joined the tour as we're avid leisure riders back home. Been to London few time so thought we'll do something different on this trip so decided on the bike tour. Our guide was Ash aka My Lord! Lol...😅. Ash was very helpful when it came to choosing the bike that you'll feel confident handling and comfortable on it. He's patient and always look out for all in the group. He tells informative stories of the places of interests with great animation and comedic fun! And since it was his birthday we bought him a cake and sang him Happy Birthday at Trafalgar Sq! We had great sunny weather and the ride was enjoyable though some times challenging due to the crowds in some places. A friend of ours who saw our posts already plan to join the tour when he's in London with his family in June. Only minus was the conditions of some bikes. Nothing about safety but stuff like better saddle and gears. Otherwise, good fun activity.

This is our third city cycle tour with Fat Tyre Bike Company and I would recommend that no matter where you go, you should do a bike tour. Our guide Andrew was amazing, so informative and knowledgeable about London and was very entertaining. Even if a Royal London tour isn't your thing this bike tour will take you to parts of London you will never get to see otherwise and if taken at the start of your trip, it is a great way to navigate the city and help identify other places you would like to return to. I would highly recommend this bike tour.
