The Basics

Hyde Park is one of London’s most popular open-air hangouts, a much-frequented escape from the busy city streets. Parkgoers can explore independently, boating on the Serpentine lake, listening to people air their views at Speakers’ Corner, and viewing the Princess Diana Memorial Fountain.

Many hop-on hop-off bus tours of London stop in the vicinity of Hyde Park, while some bike tours follow paths through the park. Some royal-themed tours of London pass through en route to Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace. Seasonal Christmas-lights tours often incorporate a visit to the park, which plays host to the annual Winter Wonderland event during the festive season.

London Royal Parks Bike Tour including Hyde Park
My wife and I joined the tour as we're avid leisure riders back home. Been to London few time so thought we'll do something different on this trip so decided on the bike tour. Our guide was Ash aka My Lord! Lol...😅. Ash was very helpful when it came to choosing the bike that you'll feel confident handling and comfortable on it. He's patient and always look out for all in the group. He tells informative stories of the places of interests with great animation and comedic fun! And since it was his birthday we bought him a cake and sang him Happy Birthday at Trafalgar Sq! We had great sunny weather and the ride was enjoyable though some times challenging due to the crowds in some places. A friend of ours who saw our posts already plan to join the tour when he's in London with his family in June. Only minus was the conditions of some bikes. Nothing about safety but stuff like better saddle and gears. Otherwise, good fun activity.

I think cycling tours are a great way to get a real feel for a city. This was a great way to see parts I wouldn’t normally see
