Tour Outline: 

This is the ultimate E-Scooter experience for any fan of London! 

A full River Thames experience offers you the most beautiful view of London imaginable! This tour takes the most scenic route through central London as we travel 5 miles between Pimlico and Tower Bridge. We will hug the riverfront, weaving our way through 4 different London boroughs and crossing the river on 3 occasions. 

Along the way, we will pass every major riverside attraction and catch glimpses of the most famous bridges in London. So grab your camera and come along to the newest and most exciting tour in London!

The tour will begin by Pimlico Underground Station. All of our tours start with a safety tutorial and E-Scooter practice. This tour features plenty of scooting opportunities, including some long stretches on the waterfront. However, you don’t have to be an expert. We will show you the ropes and the entire route takes place in cycle lanes. 

We will begin by joining the river and heading east. Our first bridge will be Lambeth Bridge. From the south side of the river, you will witness fantastic views of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. We will take a moment to stop on Westminster Bridge so you can take photos of this iconic landscape. This entire tour is incredibly photogenic, and your guide will show you the best places to get the greatest snaps! 

We will continue to Victoria Embankment, which curves along the river offering you views of The London Eye, Somerset House and the OXO Tower. 

At Blackfriars we will weave south again, crossing Blackfriars Bridge and continuing along the Southbank to one of the most famous theatres in the whole world – Shakespeare’s Globe. From here, we will take a quick dip into the delicious Borough Market.  

The tour will climax as we scoot past The Shard towards Tower Bridge. The tour will end with the greatest view of them all! Right on the waterfront with a view of Tower Bridge, London Bridge and the Tower of London.

After the tour, you can keep your E-Scooter to continue exploring the local area. At wintertime, you can now enjoy the incredibly riverside Christmas market. Or, during the summer, enjoy a drink at the pop-up Southbank festival. This tour is spectacular any time of year.
