Your journey starts by Kensington gardens. The first stop in this beautiful Royal park is Kensington Palace. Next, you cycle to the Royal Albert Hall, London's most classic venue, built to memorialize Prince Albert and the now the host for everything from the Miss World contest to rock concerts. Feel free to do your own "Last night of the proms" or stand back and listen to one of your guide's anecdotes and stories about the British Empire. You then follow the "rotten row" and the Serpentine in the amazing Hyde park to the statue of one of England's greatest war heroes. From here, you head downhill on Constitution Hill along the Green park, (the route where Queen Victoria had three assassination attempts on her life) to visit the official residence of the Royal family, Buckingham Palace. Maybe you will be invited in for a cup of tea? Your next stop is Trafalgar Square, right in the heart of London. Find out what happened to Lord Nelson in Trafalgar and all the pigeons that once lived here? Then it is time for 250 meters by foot down to Whitehall, the political center of England. Next up, take some selfies at Big Ben before you go back through the Royal parks to the meeting point which is also the end of the line. But please don´t rush off without challenging your guide with any questions you may have about museums, markets, shopping, sport or other ways to enjoy this fantastic city.

Royal London Walking Tour

3. Royal London Walking Tour

Your local guide will meet either meet you at your hotel or at the tour starting point of St. James Park Underground Station. The walk starts by heading to St James’ Park, built by King Henry VIII and so the oldest Royal Park in London. The park is renowned for its wonderful variety of birds that live in and around the lake. Next up you will visit the first of several Royal Palaces and walk a short distance to St. James’ Palace. This old palace used to be the residence of the monarch until 1837. These days it is occupied by Prince Charles, the Duchess of York and Prince Harry. From here you will walk along Londons primary ceremonial road, The Mall which leads to Buckingham Palace but before you get to the home of HRH Queen Elizabeth II, you will see Clarence House, a home with a lengthy Royal history that for many decades was the residence of the Queen Mother. There is no avoiding the magnificent Buckingham Palace and you will stop here for a while to take some wonderful photos as you learn a little about the history of the palace and The Queen before you continue past the Royal Mews. Time to move on from this particular part of London, you head over to another Royal Park, Green Park and along Constitution Hill to a number of marvelous memorials and a fabulous monumental Arch with the largest bronze statue in Europe sat atop. After stopping at Number 1 London, an actual address of a great house that once belonged to the Duke of Wellington, you enter Hyde Park. When in the middle of Hyde Park you can almost forget that you are in the middle of London with is acres of parkland, meadows, lakes and thousands of trees. It is little wonder that it was once a Royal hunting ground. You will visit the beautiful Serpentine before visiting the Princess Diana Memorial. Going back 150 years further you go on a little further to see the magnificent Prince Albert Memorial and neighboring Royal Hall before you finish this private guided tour passing through Kensington Gardens at the front gates of Kensington Palace, official London Royal residency of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

My friend and I experienced a wonderful afternoon with the kindest Tourist guide-Ola in London. This is my first time visiting London; we are cycling to a lot of beautiful places. The tour, the weather, the vibes, and the history stories, everything leaves me an unforgettable memory! I feel I am lucky to choose this happy and wonderful trip with my friend. Highly recommend everyone to join this leisurely bike tour!!

I’m a Londoner and have been to a lot of sightseeing tours but this was the best so far. I really enjoyed the wealth of information and fun stories. Our guide (Ola) was very knowledgeable, up to date, easy going and friendly. Its easy to see that he loves his job as a tour guide.. Thanks for the experience and i’ll book the longer tour in a near future.

It was a great day. The tour guide is informative, fun and friendly. It was a great way to sight see around London. In case you're worried about London traffic - you don't cycle anywhere dangerous. I would and have been recommending this activity to others.

Ola was an amazing guide. We had such fun on this bike tour. Ola was so knowledgeable and he played music as we cycled through the royal parks. The cycling was easy. We had a blast and would highly recommend this tour.

Ola knows many interesting stories that are not in books. Was fun
