Overview
The Old City bike tour takes you off the beaten path to discover London as a 'working city', from Roman times to the present day. Learn about the grit, the grime & the glory that has made London the great metropolis it is today. Get up close to St Paul's Cathedral, Leadenhall Market, the Bank of England and Tower of London. Riding a classic English Pashley bicycle with your very own local London tour guide, follow quaint historic street and cobbled lanes across the oldest parts of the city. Along the way you'll stop off at the oldest Thames riverside pub where you can enjoy a refreshing pint of beer with your group.  Then its back on the bikes as you follow in the footsteps of pirates and smugglers back to civilisation.

What to Expect
This afternoon tour kicks off just outside of Waterloo station. Follow your guide and cycle along the Thames River and onwards to the City of London: the most ancient part of the capital. As you go, spot modern marvels alongside Roman–era ruins, and learn more about the city’s rich past. Then, you’ll continue into the East End: home to a vibrant mix of communities, and commonly considered London’s creative heart. You’ll cycle past colorful street art, buzzing bars and restaurants, and even filming locations for the Harry Potter movies. Next, pause for refreshments at London’s oldest riverside pub, where you can take in the Thames scenery and sip a traditional pint of ale (own expense). Once you’re refreshed, learn more about London’s canals and docklands, see historical landmarks like the Tower of London and Tower Bridge, and then pedal onwards to bustling Borough Market. The tour concludes at your original departure point.
