See the world famous sights of London on two wheels

London, Greater London

Whether you want a quiet, relaxing peddle or to see some world-famous sights, negotiate the capital on two wheels.

London is famous for double decker buses and black cabs but it’s a city that’s easily negotiated by bike. All over the capital you can hire a pair of peddles, affectionately known as “Boris Bikes” after the London mayor who introduced them. Then you just need to decide where to go.

Anyone wanting a quiet route should bike it along the Regents Canal, taking in the elegant Little Venice, London Zoo, and the trendy wares at Camden Lock and Broadway Markets, or head up to Hampstead Heath and, if you’re feeling brave, cool off in one of the park’s natural outdoor pools.

Cycling is a great way to see the capital’s most famous sights and on the 37-mile Jubilee Greenway Walk you can tick a number off your list. Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, Tower Bridge, Greenwich Park and the Olympic Stadium are all along the way so make sure you remember to pack a camera.
