The tour will begin in Circus Place, next to Finsbury Circus (opposite Liverpool Street Station). All of our tours start with an in-depth safety tutorial and a lesson on how to ride an e-scooter. On top of this, all of our tour routes have been completely e-scooter optimised! We use scooter-friendly roads and plenty of cycle lanes. So whether you’re an e-scooter expert or completely new, you’ll enjoy a fun London tour and a safe adventure! 

For our evening tours, we have also devised some extra safety measures. We will provide every participant with a high-visibility jacket and every helmet will be equipped with a rear light. We will only be travelling on well-lit streets and cycle lanes for the duration of the tour. 

We will begin the Tour on the edge of the City. Discussing the murders and mysteries connected to the Tower of London. Hear of disappearing Princes, executed Queens and some criminals who desperately attempted to escape the block! 

From here, we will weave our way through The City stopping at churchyards, alleyways and pubs as we uncover the dark and paranormal side of London. Hear about the ghostly banker who still haunts the halls of the Bank of England or the devastated 19th Century widow who still visits the bank. We will stop at The Old Bailey, on the site of the former Newgate Prison, and hear of the true villains and scoundrels who were imprisoned inside. 

The tour will finish around Holborn, looking at some of the most ancient areas of the City. An evening scoot through the quiet streets of the City of London provides an excellent form of evening entertainment. Our darker take will enthral you as we uncover the evil side of London. Book today and come along on a unique evening activity!

Age Restrictions / Requirements:

The minimum age is 18 years old, and you must be in possession of one of the following:

  • A valid provisional or full UK driving licence.
  • A valid full licence from an EU or European Economic Area (EEA) country.
  • A valid full licence from another country that entitles you to drive a small vehicle in the U.K.

If you are unsure whether your driving license is applicable, then check this government link: “Gov.uk – E-Scooter Trials: Guidance for Users.”

When you first access a Dott E-Scooter you will be asked to verify your identity, therefore you must bring your driving license along on the day of your tour. You will need to scan your license via the Dott app, therefore you must bring the plastic photo-ID version of your license, not the paper counterpart.

If you do not bring your license, we cannot guarantee you will be able to access an E-Scooter.
