On this West End London Tour, which meets at Kennington Road, you will discover a part of Central London that’s slightly off the tourist radar known for being the main commercial and entertainment center of the city. This area is comparable to Midtown Manhattan in New York City or the 8th arrondissement in Paris, and in fact is one of the most expensive locations in the world for renting office space. It’s known for good shopping, theaters for seeing one of the many great London shows, government buildings and entertainment venues. This area is also home to the famous Westminster and Camden boroughs.
Discover Gabriel’s Wharf, Old Vic Theater & Lower Marsh
From the meeting point, you will start cycling towards Gabriel’s Wharf and be thrown straight into the quaint 1830s red-brick lined streets of Waterloo as you make your way towards The Cut Street, home to the Old Vic Theater, one of the city’s oldest and most beloved theatres, which will be our first stop on the tour.
Across the road is Lower Marsh, a vibrant street that’s a favorite of filmmakers and full of buildings housing cheap lunchtime eats and hip cafés from many ethnic origins, and the market is complete with 77 stalls from which to choose from. Turning right, you’ll explore a hidden underground tunnel, (sometimes known as the Banksy Tunnel) a unique area filled with ever-changing street art.
Stroll around Archbishop’s Park, Westminster Abbey School & Hyde Park
Next stop is Archbishop’s Park, a mellow secluded green area that backs onto Lambeth Palace, the home of the Archbishop of Canterbury. Crossing the river, you are transported back in time as you arrive at the courtyard of Westminster Abbey School, which offers a privileged view of Westminster Abbey and some of its hidden quarters. From there it’s a short ride to Horse Guard’s Parade, a historic sporting ground where Henry VIII once hosted jousting tournaments, followed by a ride through Hyde Park, Henry’s private hunting ground, before Buckingham Palace was built.
Mayfair, Soho and Swinging London + Chinatown and Covent Garden
Up next is Mayfair, an area associated with luxury shops, galleries and exclusive gentlemen’s clubs. Passing along Carnaby Street, still known today as the center of 60s Swinging London, it’s then onto Soho, a favorite haunt of the mods and hippies of the same era, and the stomping ground of British bands like The Rolling Stones. As the tour draws to a close, you’ll pass bustling Chinatown en route to Covent Garden – London’s Theater District. Finally, it’s back across Waterloo Bridge, before returning to where it all began, hungry for your next adventure.
