London Night Tour

3 Hours Easy

Definitely our most comprehensive tour, and perhaps our most colourful and illuminating, the night tour is more cycling and less talking. It’ll give you a special perspective on the city, as the sun sets and day turns into night.

After collecting your bikes at Gabriel Wharf, you'll head east along the south bank of the Thames towards Tate Modern, the old power station at one end of the once, wobbly Millennium Bridge. From there you'll ride with the pedestrians past the Globe Theatre, from where you'll have spectacular views across the river to St Paul’s Cathedral, as it bathes in the pinks and oranges of a London sunset. Onwards to Borough Market, you’ll negotiate narrow passageways dotted with historic watering holes – that only a seasoned leader could successfully guide you through, before stopping to admire the 19th-century architecture of London’s oldest food market. Across some cobbles and you'll be back on the riverbank, with the Tower of London dominating the other side.

From there, it's smooth tarmac all the way to the Mayor’s office, with its oddball design, and from where you can't miss Tower Bridge. On the other side of the famous old river crossing, just past one of the last remaining segments of London's Roman wall, you'll enter the financial district. Among the City's highlights, you'll get up close to the Lloyd's building and its remarkable exoskeleton. Next stop is St Paul’s Cathedral itself, after which you’ll follow some atmospheric old paths before joining the slick Cycle Superhighway and heading down, one speed bump at a time, towards Westminster.

If everyone's on time, you'll ride past Big Ben just as the clock strikes nine, and stop to take in the majestic sights of the UK's political heartland. Past St James's Park and Horse Guards Parade, there's another stopover at Trafalgar Square, the geographical centre of town. The cultural hub of Covent Garden is your penultimate stop.

Be ready for streets teaming with locals, tourists, performers and artists, all eager to stretch the amusement further into the night. Finally, it's back to the South Bank via Waterloo Bridge, where the lights will finally come down on this particular night out.
