Tour Outline: 

London is one of the greenest cities in the world! 

It has over 8 million trees (almost one per resident), over 16% of the city is green space and in 2019 it became a “National Park City.” 

When you think of London’s greenery, you might picture the rolling fields of Hyde Park or the wildlife of Richmond Park. However, the borough of Chelsea & Kensington also jumps to mind. With its peaceful gardens, quiet parks and annual Chelsea Flower Show, this neighbourhood encapsulates London’s greenery beautifully!

This tour is a perfect glimpse at the green side of London. 

We will begin at South Kensington Underground Station. Like all of our tours, we will start with an in-depth safety tutorial to make sure everyone is prepared and comfortable using an E-Scooter. This whole tour takes place on minor roads with adjoining cycle lanes, as we hop between the gardens of Chelsea. Meaning, if you are an E-Scooter novice, this tour will be perfectly safe and enjoyable for you! 

Our first stop will be St. Luke’s Garden & Christ Church, where we will ease ourselves in by exploring some of the rich history of one of London’s most renowned and prestigious boroughs. 

Next, we will take a scenic scoot south towards the River Thames and Chelsea Embankment. Here, we will skip through the likes of Roper’s Garden, St Thomas More Garden and the Chelsea Physic Garden. We will also admire Battersea Park that lies across the water and here about the famous London Peace Pagoda. 

As we scoot along the River Thames you will be rewarded with spectacular views. This tour is perfectly picturesque! 

We will slowly make our way to Ranelagh Gardens and the Royal Chelsea Hospital, the location of the Chelsea Flower Show. An annual event run by the Royal Horticultural Society which has been running for over a century and attracts 100,000+ people each year. Here, we will take time to explore the tranquil Gardens. If you are a keen photographer or a lover of stunning scenery then you will enjoy this tour. 

Finally, we will make our way north to King’s Road, one of the most famous streets in all of West London. The tour will conclude by the Duke of York Food Market, and a stone’s throw from Sloane Square. After the tour, you are free to keep exploring the area on your E-Scooter. Or grab a delicious snack, stroll along the river or head to Museum Mile. The possibilities are endless. 

This tour offers a little piece of nature in the heart of a bustling metropolis. If you are a fan of green spaces, parks, flowers and all things wonderful this tour is for you! 

The Chelsea Garden Tour is a green experience celebrating the bold and beautiful of London’s greenery. Zoom along the Chelsea Embankment and soak in the stunning views on offer on the banks of the Thames. The perfect experience for fans of photography and wild green spaces.
