What you'll do

Experience the freedom of exploring London by bike, just like a local, and get an exciting introduction to the best of London's landmarks and culture.

We'll provide you with a gorgeous, hand-built British bicycle and a tweed flat cap (caps optional, helmets also available) and we'll set off on an adventure around London’s iconic sights and lesser-known hidden gems.

Following back streets and dedicated bike lanes, you'll ride from Big Ben past Westminster Abbey and up to Buckingham Palace, the home of the Queen, where we'll see the Royal Guards in their dapper uniforms. You'll coast along (London is very flat!) at an easy-going pace, stopping regularly to hear fun facts and some quirky historical tales. Of course, there's time to take some fabulous photos too!

Along the way, we'll break to enjoy a refreshing pint of seasonal beer at a cosy historic pub where you can get to know your fellow travellers. You'll even get to try your hand at street art in Banksy's graffiti tunnel (and we provide spray paint!).

We've designed this route to give you the best introduction to central London in a short space of time. It's a great balance between 'not to miss' sights and local gems. Start your trip with us and you won't be disappointed! Tally ho!
Other things to note
- The route is mainly flat and easy, suitable for any person that can ride a bike.
- The overall distance is 7 miles / 11km.
- We like to give back. When you ride a bike with us, we give a Cambodian student 7 days of access to a bicycle for use as a safe mode of transportation to school (via B1G1).

Hi, I am Jack, the founder of Tally Ho Experiences. My friends and I have been guiding bike rides around London for over 9 years on beautiful, hand-made, vintage British bicycles (no daft city bikes here!). We've been featured as expert urban explorers by British Airways, Lonely Planet, and The Guardian, just to name a few. Cycling in London is easy-going and a brilliant way to connect the dots between each fascinating location. Bikes give you the freedom to explore London with the wind in your hair and get to places many people will never see. We are also big beer fans and love introducing people to our favourite local pubs on each of our adventures.

It was a great experience hosted by James. James was very fun, knowledgeable of stories and fun facts about the city. He also brought little surprise tool kits to make our experience complete. Would definitely recommend!

Do this tour!!! It is such a unique way to explore London - the guides are extremely knowledgeable, inclusive and good for a laugh. As a solo traveler this is a great way to explore London on bike. Also highly recommend is the gin safari (I did two of their tours in 1 day!)

This tour was amazing! Once in a life time experience. We've done many toys all over the world, and there are only a few you walk away from feeling like your life is better after doing that experience. If you've done enough experiences you know what I mean. James and Jack's your is one of these experiences. I would go back and do it again tomorrow. Simply the best. Everyone should do this tour! Amazing amazing. Can't say enough good stuff.

Thank you Whiskey Mick for a fantastic day! We were a bit worried about biking in central London, but Mick made us feel really safe all the way.
