Discover the grit, grime and glory that made London the great metropolis it is today. You’ll follow in the footsteps of Romans, pirates and bankers to get a unique insight into London's history. We will provide you with a cool, vintage British bicycle and we'll set off on an easy going ride across the oldest parts of the ‘City Of London’. We'll ride along in dedicated bike lanes and winding, narrow streets to seek out striking modern skyscrapers contrasted against ancient ruins. You'll get up close to the docks and industrial gems dotted along the River Thames that were once the heart of London life. We'll reveal a melting pot of cultures, street art, and industry that will blow your mind. Witness the gentrification of the East End, visit ancient trading posts, London’s Roman wall, Harry Potter film locations, iconic Tower Bridge, and much more. You'll even see the noose where pirates dangled for their crimes. Along the way we'll stop off at the oldest riverside pub in London to enjoy a pint of local craft beer with awesome views of the river and Canary Wharf.

Hi, I am Jack, the founder of Tally Ho Experiences. My friends and I have been guiding bike rides around London for over 8 years on beautiful vintage British bicycles. We've been featured by British Airways, Lonely Planet, and The Guardian, just to name a few. Cycling in London is easy-going and an awesome way to connect the dots between each fascinating location. Bikes give you the freedom to explore London with the wind in your hair and get to places many people will never see. We are also big beer fans and love introducing people to our favourite local pubs on each of our adventures.
