  • Expand/Collapse What is your weather policy?

  • Expand/Collapse Is this tour appropriate for children?

    Absolutely! We have loads of families and we're a great family activity. We offer multiple bike options for children depending on their age, size, and riding ability. Please keep in mind that children under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult on the tour.

    • For children up to 12 years old or 45kg (100lbs) without good bike handling skills we offer 2-wheeled tandems that allow the passenger to pedal or coast, without having to maintain a high level of balance. All riders over 45kg (100lbs) must ride their own bicycle. We have various sized city bikes to accommodate just about every size of rider, from extra small 20 inch wheeled bikes for riders that are 3.3ft (100cm) to extra large for riders up to 6.5ft (198cm). Unfortunately, we do not have adult tricycles, adult tandems, or bikes with training wheels for adults or children that may be less confident in their riding ability.
    • There is no additional charge for trailers, tandems or baby seats. Due to limited availability, please book baby seats, trailers, tandems, 20” and 24” wheeled bikes in advance. 
    • Please Note: All extra small 20 inch and small 24 inch bikes are equipped with both hand brakes.
    • Our city tours are very casual, with only slight elevation changes on varying surfaces including smooth gravel and pavement. It is necessary, however, that any person participating in our bike tours have at least some bike riding experience, and should be comfortable riding in a group.
  • Expand/Collapse Is a helmet included?

    Yes. You are not compelled by law to wear helmets in the UK, but we have more than enough for everyone so the choice is entirely yours.

  • Expand/Collapse Do you rent bikes?

    Yes, but, you must contact us ahead of time, especially during the summer when all the bikes may be taken up on the tours.

  • Expand/Collapse Can you suggest a bicycle repair shop in London?

Royal London Bike Tour - 11AM is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 492.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful way to see the parks I booked this on a recommendation from a friend. We had a really good time and enjoyed seeing different sites along the way. Our guide was knowledgeable and nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tour Excellent tour!. I admit I was a little concerned about a 4 hour bike tour, being a 56 year old woman, after a fourteen hour plane ride. But I have to admit easy, comfortable, informative tour that I plan on re-experiencing in Paris and Japan. Highly recommend this out of the norm tour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good moment Altough the price seems a little bit expensive, I absolutely don't regret this tour. The guide was really interesting and had some funny anecdotes. We saw most of the big places in the city Great pleasure to ride a bike in London !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fact filled and entertaining! Recommended by our daughter and son-in-law, who have done several tours in several cities. We had covered several of the sites in our walks but should have done the tour first as recommended. It gave us a great overview. We learnt a lot and were able to go back and do more of the places we hadn't seen and those we had seen we came away with much more knowledge. Paul, our guide, was full of historically relevant and really interesting and often very amusing facts. The riding was not difficult at all. We were able to cover a lot of area quickly, safely and enjoyably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really enjoyed the bike tour! I've been to London many times, but this was the first time doing a bike tour, and it was very enjoyable. It's a great way to see a lot of sites, learn a bit about each, and then decide which you'd like to visit later and spend more time. Most of the biking is through parks so it is quite easy (our 10 and 12 year old kids had no difficulty). Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Way to See the Royal Highlights! We did the Fat Tire tour in Berlin and we so impressed with that, that we knew we'd be doing another one in London. And this certainly did not disappoint! Being on a bike is such a better way to see the sights that you want to see while having your tour personalized by a real life person. The tour guides with Fat Tire are personable and knowledgeable and make for a great way to see the city. Don't waste time on another bus tour, check out a Fat Tire bike tour!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bike Tour Ever! We had a fantastic time on our bike tour with Dom! He took us to see many London highlights (Kensington Palace, Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, and much more!) in 4 hours. He was knowledgeable, kind, funny and engaging. We had a blast, and the other bikers were polite and fun. It was the highlight of our trip to London. The pace was leisurely with plenty of stops to hear about the sites. About 7 of 8 kilometers total. You do not have to be an athlete to do this trip. Just go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun way too see the city Heard about this tour in Paris and when we saw that it was in London we decided to do the bikes instead of a hop-on, hop- off bus. We had a great time riding through the parks. Our guide, Andrew, was very good and was very knowledgeable. Easy ride, so no worries if you haven’t been in a bike for a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Single traveller felt very comfortable As a single traveller I was little worried but am so glad I did this and have seen much more of London than I had before. Was about 23 people split into two tour groups. Led by one young girl and the other by an older gentleman named Dom. Most of the older members Inc myself went with Dom who shared great stories along with some funny moments esp about Buckingham palace. I was bit worried going on my own but I wasn't the only one and met people from all over the world from Japan to france, Australia and America. The bikes were very comfortable and the route was almost all on cycle paths so was very safe. There were two young boys about 11 and 12 who were in our group. One of my best experience of London esp cycling past Buckingham palace entrance amazing!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful parks, better than hop on hop off! Had a great time exploring London for the first time with fat tire tours. The pace was easy with mostly flat ground, and multiple beautiful parks to visit near Buckingham Palace, Kensington house, Westminster Abbey. Would highly recommend over Hop On Hop Off if you know how to ride a bike!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant, fun, informative tour My husband & I live in London but had friends visiting us from Scotland. We wanted to do something different but still see some of the sights. This trip fulfilled that brief. There were 13 in our manageable group. Fran, our tour guide, was fantastic. She was great Company & kept us enthralled with her anecdotes about London landmarks. Luckily the weather was perfect for our tour & because it was a Sunday we were able to cycle down both Constitution Hill & The Mall without traffic. Fran always asked whether we wanted a photo opportunity at each stop & we enjoyed the lunch break in Trafalgar Square. It was an enjoyable, memorable tour which I have already recommended to friends & family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really wonderful Incredibly fun and knowledgeable staff. When we saw the 3 hour tour for royalty, we knew we had to do it. We didn’t realize 3 hours meant 3 hours biking and 2 hours touring, so 5 hours total. It was the hottest day in London in years, but that didn’t put a damper on the tour. Guide was knowledgeable and funny
