The Christmas Lights Tour is an evening ride full of wonder and festive cheer.
Meet your Tour Guide on London’s Southbank at our bike hire centre, where we will equip you with a suitable bike, helmet (optional) and lights for your ride. The tour will go at a slow pace, with plenty of time to stop for photographs, so bring your camera!
As the sun goes down, the lights go on, and the atmosphere comes alive. Your guide will take you on quieter streets and cycle paths through Christmas markets, past the chimes of Big Ben and into the back streets of Kensington and Chelsea. Here you will cycle through rows of quiet streets, seeing how the other half live in some of London's richest and prettiest areas.
Sloane Square is a beautifully lit up shopping area that we pass through on our way to the iconic Harrod's building, lit up with over 10,000 bulbs. We then follow the long straight cycleways of Hyde Park, past the famous Winter Wonderland, and into The West End, where London really electrifies.
Oxford Street, Regent Street, Carnaby Street, and Covent Garden will impress you on a normal day, but doused in Christmas luminosity, you will be gobsmacked! We then get back on the bikes and pedal through Soho, Seven Dials and Covent Garden.
Returning over Waterloo Bridge you see the whole city twinkling before you, and rekindle your spirited memories of the last 3 hours back at the base, sharing your photographs and happy Christmases all round!
