With Halloween and bonfire night done and dusted Christmas is next on the agenda. Shops are busy putting gaudy decorations in the windows and that coca cola advert is already gracing our TV screens. Holidays are coming indeed.
Here at London Bicycle we’ve got the ideal family day out to get you well and truly into the festive spirit. On our Christmas Lights bike tour we’ll take you on a magical, sparkling, mystery tour around the best lights of London.
Every Christmas the West End is illuminated with every assortment of lights strung across the streets, adorning doorways, lighting up shop windows and trickling down walls. Some of the bigger shops compete to create the most elaborate display. Hamleys, the world’s oldest toy store, is always a crowd pleaser with their cheerful snow scenes complete with animatronics and festive music. Harrods will be glowing in all its glory, lit up with over 10,000 bulbs while Selfridges shows off its winter finery in elegant and glittery style. The majestic tudor building housing Liberty is always a treat, harking back to older times.
The tour will also take you through Kensington and Chelsea, one of London’s most charming neighbourhoods, where houses are sure to be lit up in classy splendour.
And of course, no Christmas tour of London is complete without cruising through Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland, which simply oozes with Christmas cheer. Channelling the Christmas markets in Germany you’ll find quirky trinkets galore, cockle-warming mulled wine or hot chocolate, exhilarating ice rinks and fairground rides, themed bars with real fires and all manner of tasty treats to keep those cycling legs energised.
