Description

Hampton Court Palace is the magnificent home of Henry VIII. Located on the banks of the River Thames, the palace provides the perfect destination for an easy going vintage bike ride. Each bike comes with a bell and optional basket which is perfect for resting your coat or keeping your camera close to hand. All of the bikes are single gear, highlighting just how flat and relaxing the routes are. Suitable for any shape or size, they have a comfy leather saddle and leather handlebars for a smooth ride and easy cruising.

The tour starts at Hampton Court train station, with a short walk to jump aboard their vintage-style bikes. The route is a flat 8 miles in total and passes through Royal Parks and the historic grounds of Hampton Court Palace with plenty of time to take photos and enjoy the sights. You will explore the ancient hunting grounds of Henry VIII and reveal the secret WW2 and Cold War history of the area before pausing at a pub, where refreshments are available to purchase.

After returning to the palace along the river Thames, you can leave the bikes and enjoy the rest of the day at your leisure. Explore the famous Palace & Gardens or return directly to London. In season and dependent on tide times, it is possible to take the boat back to either Richmond or Westminster.

Really enjoyable, fun experience.

Our activity was an 8 mile (completely flat) cycle journey (via Coddiwomple Tours) around the parks assosciated with Hampton Court Palace, where we started and finished. Our guide, Trish, was both informative and amusing and the amazing autumn weather made it a beautiful morning. I would definitely recommend this to friends, of all ages, but be prepared for rather old fashioned bikes.
