London town – Fat Tire Bike Tours

Posted by piphunt on August 25, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Where in the World is Pip? |

I’ve never really seen London. Yes, I’ve gone there just about every summer of my life, but outside of shopping, the Natural History Museum (Best T-Rex EVER!), and the West End, I couldn’t tell you too much. I went to the Tower of London once with my cousin, Olly, when I was 10, but that sums up the historical aspect of my annual visits.
However, I’m happy to say that has changed (at least a little bit). My mum and I decided that Jim needed to get a glimpse of “touristy” (maybe, even, historical) London. What better way to see it than by bicycle? (You didn’t think we’d sit on a tour bus for hours did you??)
We took the tube from our hotel in South Kensington to Queensbury, where we meet our cycling tour guide under the clock, just outside Kensington Garden. We cycled through Kensington Garden , http://www.royalparks.org.uk/parks/hyde_park/ Hyde Park , Hyde Park Corner, Buckingham and Traflagar Square . If you’re ever looking for a way to see London, I highly recommend it! Much better than sitting atop a double decker and glimpsing at buildings in between traffic lights!

After dinner, mum, Jim and I headed back to Kensington Church Street to meet up with Jacqulyn, Duncan and some of there friends. We went to Kensington Place for an absolutely fabulous meal, lots of wine and great banter!
