 Mostly flat, Quiet roads



Revel in the very heart of London and enjoy whatever takes your fancy for a day in the capital.

Then step from your overnight accommodation onto a river boat and follow the Thames as it threads its way serenely through the history of England. Monarchs built their palaces and planted their gardens along the banks of the river at Kew, Richmond, Hampton Court and Windsor. This tour explores all these royal gems and many other hidden treasures along a route that is unbelievably rural and yet very close to the metropolis of London.

Your cycling begins at Richmond where you disembark. Take in the royal parks where monarchs once hunted, the tranquil Thames river path with its rural backwaters and weirs, historic towns, ancient waterside inns and the houses and vistas of the rich and famous. By pass the traffic and enjoy the sights and smells of quintessential England. A royally astonishing adventure!
