If you fancy seeing the major sights of London whilst keeping fit then the Fat Tire Bike Company has the solution.

The guide will take you through Hyde Park to Buckingham Palace and then on to Trafalgar Square and Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, St. James Park, the Royal Albert Memorial, the Cabinet War Rooms, Kensington Palace & Park, Princess Diana’s Memorial, and a lunch/snack stop (food not included).
This tour costs 15 gbp ( 12gbp if you have a student card) and runs seven days a week, rain or shine. Rain ponchos are available in wet weather.

  1. Bike tours are a great way to take in a broad sweep of the city but as someone who’s lived in London for twenty years I have to say that you just can’t beat walking. How else do you spot the nooks and crannies, the smaller delights and treasures of the city that are hidden away down tiny side streets and up above street level? There’s the weird little chimney on Tower Bridge, the gargoyles leering down from the Abbey and the lions heads carved into the Embankment. It used to be said that if the water level reached the lions mouths London would flood, but I imagine that was before the Thames Barrier. I think that if you really want to know get to know the best bits of the city you should treat yourself to a walking tour. It sounds fuddy duddy but it really isn’t. You can pretty much choose any topic or area, they seem to cover everything from ghost walks to literary London or a good old pub crawl and as you stroll along they fill you in on all the juicy historical gossip and secret splendours. You don’t need to be fit, just throw on your trainers and join in. You won’t regret it.
