A born and bred Londoner and historian, I have been taking people to the streets of London for over 20 years. There is nothing like getting on the bike and getting up-close with this amazing city.

The experience

We meet in an area of London called Waterloo. There I will get you fitted with your helmet and we’ll head straight over to the City of Westminster. Now one of London's most popular boroughs, Westminster is home to some of the city's oldest buildings and famous landmarks, including Big Big, The Palace of Westminster, and Westminster Abbey.

We'll go through all the cool back streets to get from place to place, eventually making our way up to the Royal Parks to visit The Queen. We’ll take a short break at one of my favourite pubs; The Ship and Shovell. Not only famous because of its naval links, but also the only pub in the country to be split over both sides of the road.

From Trafalgar Square to St Paul’s Cathedral, we’ll cycle through the City of London - the famous square mile - before heading back to Waterloo.

Charlie was great! You feel like a real Londoner cycling through smaller neighbourhoods, and we stopped and had a pint midway through. Almost four hours flew by, even with a light rain at the end. I can't recommend this enough.

This was an amazing way to experience London. Charlie was excellent. He was incredibly knowledgable and made it a really fun time. My husband and I had never been to London before and I feel like this was a really good way to see a lot and learn a lot about the city's culture and history. Thanks for an INCREDIBLE time!

We've just finished the bike experience with Charlie and enjoyed every minute. It was funny, interesting and a complete pleasure from start to finish. The fact that he knew the area so well from having lived and worked in London for years added a level of authenticity that you just don't normally find. Thank you so much, we will definitely be back :o)

My friend and I had the best time! Charlie was a wonderful person, so knowledgeable about London, always ready with a quick joke or an answer to someone's question and he was very considerate towards every bike rider in our group. I would absolutely recommend this for someone who is interested in seeing a lot of London with those who love and appreciate its history!

We did this 3-hour experience with Charlie and it was absolutely one of the highlights of our trip. We did this at the beginning of our vacation and it was the perfect way to see and learn all about London and it's amazing history. I would highly recommend this for anyone who is visiting London.
