    This tour starts in Kensington Garden - you'll start the morning by cycling through this beautiful park to see where Queen Victoria grew up and where Princess Diana lived. Further down the road, you'll stop at London's most classic venue, The Royal Albert Hall, built to memorialize Prince Albert. Feel free to do your own "last night of the proms" or lay back and listen to one of your guide's anecdotes. Your group will then follow the "rotten row" in the magical Hyde park to the statue of one of England's biggest heroes of all time, the man who defeated Napoleon back in 1815: if you know his name and where the battle took place you're the hero of the day. It's all downhill from there, through the Green Park to visit the official residence of the Royal family, Buckingham Palace - maybe you'll get invited for a cup of tea?

Super nice seen a lot and cycled quietly highly recommended

Ola is pleasant and enthusiastic and introduces young and old during this fun trip to the most beautiful places and anecdotes that we enjoyed very much. The story of the night sleeper at the palace was just as fun. We made this trip with our sons (14 and 19 years old) and they also liked it very much. Cycled peacefully through the beautiful park and enjoyed the beautiful stories and the unimaginably beautiful surroundings. We have seen a lot and definitely recommended. You can book this at Nottinghill Bike tours.

Great bicycle tour

Very knowledgeable and friendly guide - bicycles excellent - lots of stops and views and places to see. Our group was small and guide was flexible and accommodated us wanting to cycle more and see more (less information about places) - it was brilliant and I feel very lucky to have experienced it. The 3 hours flew. Leave plenty of time to get to venue - it is just around the corner from Baywater Underground Station.
