A brief overview of Free Bike Tour London

Our tour begins at the London Bridge Spike, right beside the London Bridge Train Station.  We cross the Tower bridge and marvel at the incredible juxtaposition of the Tower of London’s nearly 2000 years of visible history against the city’s almost futuristic skyline.  From there, we cycle to the mighty St Paul’s Cathedral, the Monument . Along the Thames, we marvel at the London eye, before heading through St James’s palace to Westminster houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey.  We take a leisurely amble through the Royal Parks towards Buckingham palace. We head across the River to the Tate Modern Gallery, Shakespeare’s Globe theatre and the Borough Market. By now, you’ll definitely have earned yourself a pint or a cuppa, we finish in an area teeming with charming hidden pubs cafes, and the best fish and chips in town.

We delve into London’s history, way back to its Roman beginnings and even earlier.  Working our way through the Anglo Saxons, to the Vikings and the Normans. We follow centuries of the history of the Royals, from William the Conqueror, through the Tudors and the infamous Henry the 8th, to Her Majesty Elizabeth the 1st.  The Tudors. We explore life under these monarchs, such as the Elizabethan era, a time of brutal, bloody spectacle out of which Shakespeare was born, or the Victorian era, a time of incredible development and the expansion of British power.  Despite all of the parks to walk through, life in London wasn’t always a walk in the park. We get into the nitty gritty corners of London’s story, from cholera to the black plague and public hangings to the great fire of London. We look at life here through the World Wars and the devastation of the Blitz.  

Bike Tour London hall of fame

London has always inspired creators in every imaginable field.  The great literary works of Charles Dickens and Samuel Johnson were all born out of the diversity of life in London’s streets.  Many of the greatest musicians of all time have called London home, including David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, George Michael and the Spice Girls.  We uncover some of their stories, and look into London as the centre for the revolutionary liberation of culture that was the sixties. We observe the architecture of Norman Foster towering above us, and discuss the incredible impact of the tunnels of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, hidden beneath the ground.  Our guides take you all the way through London’s history to now. London is an incredibly vibrant, happening place today, and if it happens in a city, it happens here in loads. Aswell as revealing their own personal secret spots on the tour, our guides are always happy to share their own tips on how to get the best out of this behemoth during your stay.

About us

We are the originator of the free bike tour concept, we started our first free bike tour in the city of Barcelona in 2015 because the idea of a £30 bike tour sounds outrageous. People deserved a better, more affordable option. The idea of renting one of our bikes then tipping the guide what they felt appropriate was born. Now we are in 5 major cities across Europe and always looking for new opportunities to spread the concept to further locations.
