London is a city of constant hustle and bustle but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to have the streets all to yourself!
A few months ago G and I got up before the sun, hopped on our Boris Bikes and set out to explore the major, amazing sights of the British capital without the distraction of other people (or danger of vehicles…have you seen the size of a London bus?!)
If you’re visiting London and pressed for time an early bike ride is a fantastic way to see everything in a short amount of time. And lucky for you my wheeled excursion encompassed the city’s highlights which I have included handy links for!
So, grab your helmet and get ready to ride into some serious sightseeing fun!
We started near Westminster and headed east…
…passing St Pauls’s Cathedral…
As the sun rose higher we pointed our bikes west, passed St Paul’s again, paid a flying visit to Queen Victoria outside Buckingham Palace (what up, Vic?!) and entered Kensington to see the V&A and National History Museum.
As hunger pains began to set in we headed up into Notting Hill to cruise Portobello Road before heading home (via Lesicester Square and the National Gallery) for well-earned pancake feast….and then a nap!
